The #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen and the Edgar Award-winning author Roy Johansen are back with another novel in The Naked Eye featuring Kendra Michaels-hired gun for both the CIA and FBI.
How can you catch a killer when everyone thinks he's dead?
Kendra Michaels was instrumental in bringing serial killer Eric Colby to justice. And yet, despite his apparent execution at San Quentin, Kendra is convinced that Colby is still alive. The problem is that she can't prove it. Even her razor-sharp powers of observation-developed to an amazing capacity during the twenty years she spent blind and now in constant demand by law enforcement agencies-have gotten her nowhere.
But then a reporter who very publicly humiliated Kendra is murdered. Visiting the crime scene in search of anything that might link the brutal homicide to Colby, Kendra instead finds evidence that points to her. Finally Colby's master plan becomes clear to her: he is framing Kendra for murder.
Suspicions mount and Kendra is thrust into deadly pursuit to clear her name and catch the killer no one believes exists anymore. A killer who is always nearby, watching, waiting to make his next move, even as everyone believes him to be dead. A killer whose trail of destruction is invisible to the naked eye, despite the carnage he leaves in his wake. It will take everything Kendra has to find and stop Colby--and save her own life one more time.
In bestseller Johansen and son's exciting third novel featuring Kendra Michaels (after 2014's Sight Unseen), Kendra, a law-enforcement consultant whose senses of smell and hearing are extraordinarily acute, believes that serial killer Eric Colby is still alive, even though he was supposedly executed by lethal injection at California's San Quentin State Prison months earlier. Meanwhile, San Diego reporter Sheila Hunter, who's eager to interview Kendra, runs a newspaper story that supports Kendra's theory about Colby. Dismayed that Sheila's story has tipped off Colby, Kendra agrees to talk to the reporter. Just hours after their meeting, Sheila turns up dead, hanging from the mast of a house boat in a local marina. The MO suggests that Colby could be the killer. Beth, the sister of Eve Duncan (the star of Iris Johansen's main series), joins Kendra in a thrilling race against time to stop a killer who seems to follow Kendra's every move.
Great characters, good flow, not as great as previous books.
The Naked Eye
Read all three books in this series. Disappointing due to characters being unrealistic. Iris never humanize her women...no one would behave as her wooden characters do. Baby Eve Duncan who is angry, self righteous, selfish. Roy brings depth to the writing. Could be pretty great books if characters were at all like able or believe able
