Publisher Description

There is something special about meeting an old acquaintance by chance. A reunion with someone you were close to a long time ago always seems a bit miraculous. But for the blind especially this is a very unlikely occurrence, as you might as well pass one another by without even knowing it.
So in 1984, at the age of sixty-one, Daisy Hayes was quite thrilled to encounter her old classmate Janet, blind like her, in her doctor’s waiting room. Then a disturbing fact became clear: Janet did not have such fond memories of our blind sleuth when she was a schoolgirl. She even asked, “Remember the night Vicky died? I’ve always wanted to know: did you push her down the stairs?”
Suddenly Daisy found herself accused of murder; she was appalled, and asked herself, “Do all my old schoolmates think I pushed Vicky? How can I prove my innocence forty years after the facts?” To achieve just that, she was forced to go rooting in a distant past, with shocking results.
“Two of Nick Aaron’s most intriguing creations come together in a most intricate plot: the ‘Anne Sullivan’, Daisy’s old school, and her son Jonathan, a.k.a. Johnny-John, who puts the words 'problem-child' to shame. Enjoy!” — The Weekly Banner
This 60k novel is a stand-alone Blind Sleuth Mystery:
I D for Daisy
II Blind Angel of Wrath
III Daisy and Bernard
IV Honeymoon in Rio
V First Spring in Paris
VI The Nightlife of the Blind
The Blind Sleuth Mysteries Daisy Hayes was born in London in 1922. Her father was a bank manager, hoping for a son, but he had to settle for a blind daughter.
Now what do you do when your child is blind since birth and you have the means to do all that is necessary to help her? You hire a private tutor to stimulate her verbal development in the first years of her life, because you realize how vital language will become for her. Then you send her to an exclusive school where everything is done to develop the minds and resourcefulness of blind girls. There they teach them all these fancy techniques of spatial orientation and mind mapping. And before you know it, your darling daughter has developed an exceptional intellect that just seems to draw murder mysteries like a magnet…
The Blind Sleuth Mysteries form a portrait of the twentieth century as witnessed by this remarkable blind woman. In volume one Daisy takes us along with her through World War II. The second book brings us to 1989, the year the Berlin wall came down. At the same time these novels form the life story of Daisy Hayes. “First Spring in Paris” and “Honeymoon in Rio”, for instance, take place in 1946 and 1952, and connect nicely to “D for Daisy”, that ends in 1950. “The Nightlife of the Blind”, on the other hand, takes place in 1984, five years before “Daisy and Bernard”.
