A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years—the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her—coupled with her laser-sharp mind have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

When former agent Adam Lynch, known as the Puppetmaster, approaches her about a possible serial murder case, she is determined to steer clear. But he’s a notorious manipulator, skilled at handling criminals and colleagues alike to get the results he wants. And now he holds a trump card: The latest possible victim is Kendra’s ex-lover, an FBI agent who vanished without enough clues to follow—unless Kendra can pick up the trail. And if she can’t, she just might close her eyes again...forever.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kris | 2/14/2014

    " Didn't hate it, but totally couldn't get into it. The main character isn't only unbelievable, but very grating and unlikable. That's frustrating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth T | 2/14/2014

    " gave an insight to the non-seeing world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Chickey | 2/11/2014

    " Liked it. Quick read over holiday break. Keep looking for another Girl with Dragon Tattoo - falls short of that, but still a good intriguing read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toni | 2/10/2014

    " I enjoy her books in general, and appreciated one outside of her usual Eve and company books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Phillips | 2/6/2014

    " Big fan of Johansen and the Eve Duncan series but can see where the story line has begun to run its course. This first novel about Kendra and Lynch was relatively good albeit rather predictable. The storyline was a bit slow for me at points but it may be because the character development wasn't thorough enough and I didn't really feel very attached to any character straight away. I am looking forward to a second book by the mother and son duo to see if the second book provides a tad more development and character development. I understand there was a Novella put out either alongside thus book or shortly before which may have given more story on the two main characters, including the reasons causing kendras tumultuous relationship with the Bureau but I could not find it and did not read it. "

    " Fascinating character. Dialogue sometimes is stilted. Interesting story. Quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michelle | 1/22/2014

    " This was a really good suspense novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/10/2014

    " This was my first time reading this author. This certain book kept me intriqued the whole way thru. It was a page turner and it usually takes me awhile to read a whole book. I read this within a month. I'm hoping the character Kendra will appear in a sequel or series in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 12/25/2013

    " Iris & Roy are fantastic collaborators! Think Mentalist or Psych (hyper-observent) for similarities. "

    " I enjoy her books and this one written with her son was excellent "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 7/25/2013

    " It should have been better. Hollow, annoying characters topped off the paint by numbers plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimi | 6/15/2013

    " I liked Kendra and Lynch but felt that some of the situations and the writing (especially towards the end) weren't very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jolene | 3/14/2013

    " This was a fun, though fairly mindless, read--actually better than Iris Johansen's latest. I would give it 3 1/2 stars. "

    " It was a well written mystery, typical of Iris Johansen to leave you wanting more... Cant wait to read Sleep No More. Excited to see how or if Lynch/Kendra develop a more intimate relationship. "
