The #1 New York Times bestselling author and the Edgar Award-winning author are back with a new novel featuring Kendra Michaels - hired gun for both the CIA and FBI.
A deadly multi-vehicle pile-up on San Diego’s historic Cabrillo bridge is thought of as a horrific accident - until Kendra Michaels arrives on the scene and perceives it as something much more sinister.
Blind for decades and now sighted, Kendra's unusual skill for observation is highly sought after by both the FBI and CIA. Now her amazing conclusions open up a multi-jurisdictional investigation that once again teams her with the FBI and federal agent Adam Kyle as they investigate a conspiracy so explosive that someone will kill again and again to protect it. As the killer casts a deadly web of lies, Kendra’s life hangs in the balance, as do the lives of those she holds most dear.

Great underlying story but the characters in this book were extremely self centered and full of angst to a ridiculous degree. I have liked all the previous books but this one really needed a good edit!
probably not. Good story. Bad writing.
Amplified angst and tried to act too much!
Good underlying story.
Get a better editor!
No. Other than the title, I can't find a single positive thing to say about this book.
I don't know, but the range of her voice is not suited for the multiple characters. I often had to go backup to figure out who was talking.
No. Absolutely not!
I have read other things by both authors and this was just plain bad. The storyline was implausible with the main character bossing the police, FBI, and anyone else. The character lines were simply foolish...sentimental woman sexually fantasizing about the Guy. In five years I have never returned a book, this may be my first.
Great start, interesting book, not the typical crime novel that one would expect. Kendra's character brings a new perspective in investigative crime novels.
Yes. Nice change of pace in crime novels.
Kendra. The secondary characters were integrated well into this novel.
No. After a quick start, a little fizzle brought down my expectations.
Would listen to a follow up novel involving Kendra Michaels.
Definitely toward the top.
Every time I thought I'd figured something out I was shot down. I was left guessing right up until the end.
Well researched thrillers Chriton-esque. Nonfiction: Science, medical, biography, "self-help" meta cognitive sub-genre, memoir, philosophy..
In the fiction genre it ranks fairly high. Not spellbinding but I was eager to get back to it! Will read more titles by authors— This was the first one for me.
I am not sure there was one single memorable moment. The dynamics of the flow were strong. The main character makes the book good throughout all of the moments. Kendra.
I think she does a very good job.
I suppose the most pertinent comment I could make is that I have just ordered another book in the series. I'm reading them backwards which was not per plan. But I enjoyed this book enough to want to read another by the authors and about and featuring these characters.
in the past I avoided Ms. Johansen's work after reading or listing to 3 or 4 of them. I do not like her work the story lines are generally not realistic. Sappy characters. The narrator is fine.
I cannot figure out what the genre it.
Felt it was a stupid story so that is the only reaction I had to the book.
A better story / plot. Not sure how they managed to make a serial killer plot so tedious.
How they left the ending open for the next book
The narrator was pretty good.
Can I say the main character?
I rarely write reviews. Hardly ever. But the book was a struggle to get through. It was predictable, and the character hard to feel empathy for, even though her emotions were being stated heavily. I also hated how she left the ending open with the bad guy on the loose. It comes off grab for you to purchase more books. Sadly, after this one, I will not be reading or listening to her again.
Normally it takes about 2 chapters for me to get into a book. After 5 minutes of Sight Unseen, I knew I would like it.
You know who the killer is towards the beginning of the book but this is not a who-done-it but ....
Great style. She seems to feel the words.
