Publisher's Summary

Investigator Kendra Michaels - whose former blindness has left her with uniquely insightful observational skills - must put her life on the line to catch a terrifying murderer setting his sights on some of society's most vulnerable in this electrifying new novel from the number one New York Times and Edgar Award-winning writing duo Iris and Roy Johansen.

Dr. Kendra Michaels, blind for the first 20 years of her life before gaining her sight via a revolutionary surgical procedure, is a renowned investigator known for her razor-sharp senses - honed during her years in the dark - and keen deductive abilities.

Now, her skills are needed uncomfortably close to home. Two staff members have been murdered at a school for the blind where Kendra spent her formative years. But the murders are puzzlingly dissimilar: one victim was brutally stabbed, while the other was killed by a bullet to the head. Are the crimes related? Or is Kendra on the hunt for more than one dangerous killer?

With the killer (or killers) still on the loose, Kendra must put her life on the line to unravel a terrifying conspiracy. But Kendra soon discovers that she herself may hold the key to the deadliest secret of all.

Stupid book!

I listen to a LOT of books (30 - 40 per year). Some are spectacular, most are ok but good enough to keep me entertained and engaged fairly well on my long commute. This is only the third one I have ever returned to Audible. I have read previous books by Iris Johanson and liked them well enough and I thought the main character sounded interesting in this one. But there is a totally unrealistic undeveloped plot and no real character development, just a supposedly professional investigator who behaves like a spoiled lovestruck teenager. I made it to chapter 8 and could not stand it any more. It's dumb and I am done.

Awful, just awful ...

As slow and boring as a 1960's soap opera … if the plot moved any slower it would be at a standstill. Add to that juvenile dialogue and, for some unknown reason, an odd and unexplained focus on a traumatized rescue dog' (?) … and ya have … a waste of time.

Another fantastic book

From beginning to end, this book was thrilling. I have been following Kendra on her journey. Including Eve's series that kendra appears in on occasions. Iris Johansen keeps me guessing and intrigued. Seriously can not wait to see what happens next.

Not their best

I usually love the Johansen books but Kendra Michaels is wearing thin. She’s supposed to be so bright but the Johansens way overused her stubbornness and insistence on going off on her own where she always,always gets into trouble as a way of moving the plot forward. Instead, it distracts from the plot and makes Kendra annoying and downright stupid. That in turn makes it difficult to see why Lynch is so besotted with her. Tough to like a book when you can’t relate to the main character. Not their best.

Still The Same..

7 books in and little to no character development. Kendra is still demanding, selfish, naive and convinced that everyone will drop what they're doing to make her needs possible. 7 books in and we still know next to nothing about Mr. International Man of Mystery Lynch. Bless him for putting up with Kendras antics for this long, I'll pray for him.

Enjoyed This Book

I always like the Kendra Michaels books. This story was very good. I do get tired of the single Johansen heroines ALWAYS struggling against the men in their lives. Eve and Joe do just fine and he is as alpha as they come. It’s annoying when they act like whiny little bitches towards the men who clearly love them. At least there is some hope that Kendra might come around.
