Publisher's Summary

A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years - the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her - coupled with her laser-sharp mind - have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

When former agent Adam Lynch, known as the Puppetmaster, approaches her about a possible serial murder case, she is determined to steer clear. But he’s a notorious manipulator, skilled at handling criminals and colleagues alike to get the results he wants. And now he holds a trump card: The latest possible victim is Kendra’s ex-lover, an FBI agent who vanished without enough clues to follow - unless Kendra can pick up the trail. And if she can’t, she just might close her eyes again ... forever.

    Any additional comments?

    I don't know why I had so much trouble staying connected to this audio book. The reader was OK... Not a fan of romance tucked in to suspense novels - to me it detracts from the story.

    "Seeing Everything"

    I really enjoyed this story, Kendra is a formerly blind persin who regains her sight at age 20, due to those years of blindness her other senses are VERY VERY acute. She notices rhe most minute details bc she uses ALL of her senses not just her eyes. It is probably strerching it a bit how acute her senses are but not so outside the realm of possibilities to make it absurd. Because it COULD be real it makes a great story. Her character is rigid at times, prickly, she offends others easily due to being so intelligent and having others not believe her.
    Her partner is just as unique in different ways and therefore was a loner who did not play well with others until he met and manipulated Kendra into helping him. The partnetship/adversarial relationship they have is what makes them so good together.
    i definitely recommend this book and look forward to the 2nd.

    Story
    "Terrific!"

    This was my first descent into the team Iris and Roy Johansen novels. I must admit I was quite pleased with the novel.

    Kendra Michaels is a character,much like Iris Johansen's Eve character, that you will not soon forget. She is smart a witty, and extremely observant. She spent the first period of her life blind which has made her far more appreciative of the things she sees. It also makes her more observant of what she sees. An old boyfriend is missing and she finds herself thrust into solving crime with a former FBI agent, something she had promised herself that she would never do again.

    She and the former agent travel unraveling the truth of an old chemical weapon the was never discarded correctly and must stop the people who wish to profit through it as they clean up their tracks by leaving mystery and bodies in their wake.

    "Not really believable heroine, but otherwise good"

    once you suspend your disbbelief enough to agree to a Sherlockian heroine the plotting.and writing are pretty good and the reader is okay. This is a.new series for the Johansens so I will probably check out the credentials of their Eve something detecting crime. The book is a little graphic on the gore several places.

    Story
    "Don't be distracted by the description ,it's really bad"

    I read some of the reviews and thought , "It can't be that bad."
    Boy was I wrong . I'm not sure if I was distracted by the poor performance of the narrator, or if it was just poorly written. I will say the performance of the narrator was monotonous. The two main characters growled every single comment they made.

    I love to read and I love being able to listen to books. Unfortunately , I do not love or even like this particular story. I forced myself to listen because I paid for it. Don't make the same mistake! Read other reviews and unlike me , believe them!

    "Great character in Kendra Michaels"

    What I looked most at first was the main protagonist Kendra Michaels, a very interesting combination of high sensorial abilities and, in a split of a second, a very visceral persona when feel someone is trying to manipulate her.

    "it wil open your eyes to intrigue !"

    Story
    "Don't Waste Your Time"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Adolescent girls


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Involuntary Witness / Gianrico Carofiglio


    What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

    Elisabeth Rodger's voice is pleasant, but her overly dramatic tone is very annoying. The sappy dialogue didn't help.


    What character would you cut from Close Your Eyes?

    Lynch
