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.

I did like the story line but the main character had a little bit of a persecution complex. Everyone is trying to "use" her because of her "gift". They want to make her be part of the investigation. She’s not too likable despite her overcoming a disability. I did like hearing the observation skills on things that everyone else would have probably overlooked. I’m not sure I would buy another book about this character.
Another murder mystery
Main character describing what was out of place in the victim's apt
Not sure. It would depend on who plays the main person
Rather amateurish, both in writing and in narrator's performance. The story plot was interesting however, the dialogue of the characters lacks dept and maturity. The narration did not help the lack of maturity.
Sorry, not unless it makes the best seller's list.
Sorry, not really!
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
i don't know
This book is nothing to write home about. For one thing the murder plot gets repetitive & boring real fast & any avid reader, movie buff or TV guru could quickly figure out why the murders are happening & what the main plot is although nothing comes to light until the end. So to begin with so there is no challenge there. The main female character seems to have a lot of extraordinary talents but can’t seem to handle them when under real pressure. She is in constant self analysis & blame of herself & those around her to a point of becoming nauseating & repetitious. Even after nearly getting killed several times in this book she still plunders on in a cloud of resistance, confusion & inability to stop. (?) She waffles from always believing she is right, getting testy, to having a huge chip on her shoulder. The story line becomes too long & drawn out with the story based on mainly conversational which to me lacks a balanced with what could have been some interesting background narrative. And the relationship between the main female character & the FBI sounds just way too loose, unorganized & unbelievable.
The narrator was pretty good although I could still hear the female tone in the numerous male voices. So in a case where there is a lot of conversation I would prefer a male & female narrator.
She was overworked.
I love to read, fly and play tennis. I always have a book and an audible book going at the same time. I'm a mystery/thriller junky.
I enjoyed Elisabeth Rodgers narration once again...she does an excellent job with voices and inflections. I liked the story but would have wished for a more romantic ending. They'd lead up to it but then mess it up. It's good to be a strong woman, but Kendra had almost any sort of issue with compliments thinking everyone wanted to use her. She was mostly always angry. I would have liked for her to be a bit more accepting and not so defensive, maybe even softer. I think they could have had the same plot and outcome even then. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story. Good plot, good surprises, twists and turns with a happy ending. It would be interesting to know if there are people who can do what Kendra could do with her 5 senses. Pretty amazing. I wish there was a sequel to finish or continue with Kendra & Leach's story.
The narrator was fine
The lead female
The personality of the lead female character was awful. She was rude, arrogant and unliked by all and i felt she deserved the opinion of others. I could not finish the book because i could not stand to listen to her any more.
I would have enjoyed it more without the voice...next time I will buy a regular kindle version.
Not the audible.
Her voice "changes" grated on me...just personal preference.
This is a very slow book. The narrator did a good job with the story but I believe this is one of the weakest books written by the Johansens.
Yes, the story had a few mysteries to unfold so it made it fun
Have a job I really love and feel good at
This story is the typical chick story, all throbbing muscles, beating hearts and no story. Don't waste your time unless you like books with little or no plot and beautiful people.
