Publisher's Summary

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.

It's been four months since the events of Sight Unseen, and Kendra Michaels is obsessed with trying to track down serial killer Eric Colby. Despite his apparent execution at San Quentin, Kendra is convinced that Colby is still alive. The trouble is, she can't prove it. Even her razor-sharp powers of observation, honed while blind during the first twenty years of her life, have gotten her nowhere. So no one believes her.

Then out of the blue she gets a call from the Sheriff of Olancha, California, about a young woman being held on a drunk and disorderly charge who lists Kendra as her emergency contact. It's Eve Duncan's sister, Beth Avery, who after being wrongfully institutionalized for five years has been living on the road and trying to figure out her life. Kendra can identify, having gone through a similar period of self-discovery after gaining her sight, and she takes Beth home to San Diego with her.

But the murder of a police detective who had once very openly crossed swords with Kendra is about to complicate her life even further. She visits the crime scene in search of anything that might provide a link to Colby and instead finds evidence that links the crime to her. Finally Colby's master plan becomes clear: he is framing Kendra for a brutal cop-killing.

Suspicions mount along with the body count, and Kendra is thrust into spine-tingling pursuit to clear her name and find the killer no one believes exists anymore. Beth joins her on her quest, and agent-for-hire Adam Lynch soon follows. And they get help from another friend anxious to repay her debt to Kendra...none other than Eve Duncan herself.

    Story
    "It could have been good. But it wasn't."

    Where do I begin? Ah yes. The beginning. The beginning which really sets the stage of dissatisfaction because the story starts out strong. And has a good plot. But that quickly changes.
    The entire thing was waaaay too drawn out. Which made the ending not worth it, by the time you got to it. But the worst part of the whole thing is the dialogue. It feels like the authors have never heard normal conversations between people (especially conversations between 2 women), so instead wrote what they imagined normal conversations would sound like. It was brutal. And awkward. And I'm pretty sure at one point I wondered if I had acids rly bought some cheesy lesbian lovers book, because the dialogue was THAT off beat.
    But if that isn't enough, the characters are weak. They introduce them with one set of characteristic, and then find them acting nothing like that later. The genius detective who can tell your exact where-abouts from a bug on your car, is later the same dumb detective who can't price clues together that are so obvious it'll have you yelling "oh come on!" To your book.

    "Disappointing and slow."

    Story was weak and predictable. Narrator was over dramatic. Boring would be the only way to describe it.

    "AZ Grandma is really hooked!"

    Once again Iris & Roy Johansen & Elizabeth Rogers have given me many hours of entertainment. I'm looking forward to the next book. I hope Kendra & Lynch act on their feelings for each other in this coming book.

    "Terrific!"

    Kendra Michaels finds herself obsessed with finding serial killer Eric Colby who everyone else thinks was put to death at San Quentin.

    As Iris and her son Roy weave this tale the reader or listener finds themselves on a fascinating journey. A cruel psychopath begins killing once again and Kendra finds herself in sticky situations. You will want to take in this book in one sitting as these skilled authors take you on a trip of high suspense.

    "a bit gory"


    more gory than I prefer but a good overal l plot. Engaging charactures, good dialog, and believeable scenery. Not the treat that the first book in the Kendra series, and I keep hoping Adam Lynch will sweep her off her feet and marry her. Ah, well, I am not a writer but only an avid reader. I am going to try at least one of the Eve Duncan boòk. We shall see.

    "Very disappointed..."

    Although I love the character of Kendra Michaels, specifically on the first book of the series, the quality of the story is very poor on this third installment.
    The villain of thing the second second second second second second second second secondsecond book appears again on this one, but the story is not believable at all.
    I hope the series improves a lot in the fourth book if there is one at all.
    You better spend your credit in a Barry Eisler or John Sandford book.

    "Disappointing"

    I did not enjoy this Kendra Micheals story as much as the prior ones. Story didn't get good until last 5 chapters. If I was reading it, I wouldn't have persevered.
