Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling duo Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen comes Sight Unseen, the next thrilling novel featuring Kendra Michaels.

She was safe in a world of darkness.
Now danger threatens in the cold light of day...
Before the experimental surgery that gave her sight, Kendra Michaels developed her other senses to an amazing capacity. Now she can identify a Nissan by the sound of its engine, a Norelco electric razor by the pattern of stubble it leaves behind, or an obscure colorless fire accelerant by its sweet smell. Law enforcement agencies clamor for her rare powers of perception and observation, too often disrupting the life she has built helping others through music therapy. Because so very often, only Kendra can get the job done.
But in this case, it's Kendra who first realizes that the apparent traffic accident on San Diego's historic Cabrillo Bridge is in fact a murder scene, and she rushes to alert the police before crucial evidence is destroyed. As the body count rises and one murder unveils another, a gruesome pattern emerges. Someone is killing people in ways that mirror Kendra's most notorious cases. She has a fan: someone who admires her work and is twisted enough to show that admiration through murder—while naming himself after the biggest art forger of the 20th century. He views himself not as a monster but as an artist. And he is not working alone.
As the darkness closes in, near enough to touch Kendra and those she loves, Kendra must come face to face with her greatest fears—and her most ruthless enemy. A man who moves through the shadows, a man she may even know, who hides behind the mask of sanity, sight unseen.

        July 28, 2014
        In this edgy sequel to Close Your Eyes (2012) from the bestselling mother/son Johansens, Dr. Kendra Michaels, a music therapist who was born blind but regained her sight at age 20, uses her acute senses of smell and hearing, as well as her extraordinary aptitude for reading people and interpreting crime scenes, to track ann unusual serial killer. When four people die in a three-car pileup on San Diego's Cabrillo Bridge, Kendra immediately realizes this was an act of murder. Furthermore, the staged-accident bears the hallmarks of another case of hers in Texas. At a meeting at San Diego's FBI headquarters, she learns of two other recent murders whose details mirror previous cases she has worked on. Other homicides connected to Kendra's past cases follow. When the current crimes are linked implausibly to a serial killer awaiting execution on death row, she has to face the first killer she put away. Kendra gets ample opportunities to display her deductive skills, fend off the advances of dangerously attractive former FBI agent Adam Lynch, and risk all to protect and save those she loves in this flashy romantic thriller. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency.

        July 1, 2014
        Based solely on the fleeting images seen on a restaurant's TV screen, Kendra Michaels knew that the multicar pileup on San Diego's Cabrillo Bridge was no accident. The staged tableau was designed to get her attention by re-creating grisly elements from a number of serial murders Michaels had helped solve. Now a copycat killer has Michaels in his sights, with plans to both honor and discredit her as he draws an ever-tightening noose around Michaels, her FBI cohorts, and the people she loves most. As readers of the mother-and-son Johansen team's popular Kendra Michaels series (Close Your Eyes, 2012) know, she spent most of her life as a blind woman, until vision-restoring surgery granted her observational powers worthy of Sherlock Holmes, extraordinary abilities that will engage all her senses as she tracks down this sociopathic killer. The Johansens do a page-turning job of tying up all the loose ends in this complex cat-and-mouse game, but they always manage to leave one thread dangling: just the kind of ploy designed to keep loyal series fans eagerly anticipating the next installment.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
