Publisher's Summary

For one woman, the dark is a dangerous place to be, and it's the one place she cannot escape. Arizona auto mechanic Cadence Moran is no stranger to darkness. She was blinded in a horrific car accident eight years ago that also took the life of her three-year-old niece. She knows she was only partially to blame, but that doesn't make the loss any easier to bear. She's learned to get by, but there are still painful memories. When she is almost run down by a speeding car on the way home from work, Cadence at first thinks that she is the victim of road rage or a bad driver. But that's not the case. In fact, she is the only witness to the murder of her elderly neighbor, and now the killer believes that she's seen the getaway car. Louise Ure paints the glare of a Southwestern summer with the brush of a blind woman's darkness in this novel of jeopardy and courage.... and the fine line between them - as Cadence fights to stop a killer she can't see.

What the Critics Say

"An original and gripping work... its nail-bitting suspense is balanced with a thoughtful, nuanced view of where blame truly begins. (Laura Lippman, New York Times best-selling author)

"By turns an accomplished procedural, an acute study of a fiercely independent heroine and a nail-biting suspenser." (Kirkus)

    "Unlikely Premise, unique stereotypical protagonist"

    This book brings up so many mixed emotions in me. She has created a blind character refreshingly unique (an in-your-face, emotionally distant car mechanic) with some awful tropes of touching faces and downplaying her blindness. I'm trying to decide if I identified with her or wanted her to get on with the acceptance process already.
    This book starts out promising and then degenerates. The last 1/4 of it, we already know who done it and why, but the police are still interviewing people.
    It's not the best blind protagonist I've read, but generally (if you discount the face-feeling) a pretty good one for ingenuity, resourcefulness and complicated feelings.
    As a mystery, it just dragged on...
