Investigator Kendra Michaels -- once blind and known for her sharp skills -- puts her life on the line to catch a killer in this electrifying novel from the #1 NYT bestselling and Edgar Award-winning duo.
Dr. Kendra Michaels, blind for the first twenty 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.
In bestseller Johansen and son's riveting seventh Kendra Michaels novel (after 2018's Double Blind), FBI consultant Kendra, who has honed a keen sense of observation from years of blindness she experienced as a child, works on a double murder case at a school she once attended, Woodward Academy for the Physically Disabled, in Oceanside, Calif. Kendra, who knew the victims, groundskeeper Ronald Kim and survival skills teacher Elaine Wessler, can't understand who would want to kill them or why. The clues she uncovers with the aid of the FBI lead her to Elaine's ex-husband's apartment building, where she finds the ex-husband on the roof with his throat slit and eludes the man's possible killers with the help of a friend who arrives at the building in the nick of time. The danger rises as Adam Lynch, a black ops specialist, joins Kendra in her quest for Elaine and Ronald's killers. The authors pepper the twisty plot with plenty of red herrings. Suspense fans are in for a treat.
