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 twenty 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.

What began as a heinous murder investigation escalates into something even larger and more frightening: a multi-million dollar conspiracy to hide a secret that’s worth killing for, again and again and again.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/20/2014

    " The book was good but not was I was looking for at the time I was reading it so I was not 100% focused on it. I must say that there were some twist and turns that I did not see coming in the plot that made it very exciting. Good book but I do like Iris's books she writes alone much better then those that she writes with others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenna Sargent | 2/18/2014

    " good but not up to par with the Eve Duncan series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie Sansone | 2/9/2014

    " Fast read....loved this book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachelle | 2/8/2014

    " An investigative thriller about paying attention to details, doing the right thing, and rising up to meet challenges. The plot is full of intrigue, reminding me of the TV series "Unforgettable." The characters are intense, independent, self-sufficient, and driven, though "master manipulator" Adam Lynch isn't very subtle and for most of the book he takes a back-seat to Kendra Michaels, who is fascinating and intelligent but very abrasive. "

    " A fan of Iris Johansen!! :) Interesting premise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamela | 1/26/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and kept me turning pages way until the middle of the night. I really like that most of her books can stand alone so you do not have to read them in any special order.I enjoyed the characters and her plots always seem fresh and new. I will not put out any spoilers, but it is worth your time to read if you are a fan of murder, suspense and..Iris Johansen. If you have never read any of her books..try this one, you will like it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/21/2014

    " similar to another series, i think this might be the first in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/20/2014

    " Kendra is not an easy main character to like. She is abrasive and certain her special skills are right in finding the killer. Lynch her FBI agent recruited her and they seem to not mesh well. The story moves quickly and ending has some twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/11/2014

    " Can't wait for the next one!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 1/11/2014

    " Enjoyed Close Your Eyes - not my normal reading style, but it was good! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara Knepper | 1/7/2014

    " I read the whole thing and I'm not sure why. The characters were stiff and shallow; so was the dialogue. The bad guys were all thoroughly evil, the good guys were all perfect, and the bosses were all annoying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bridget | 1/3/2014

    " Iris, what happened? This was not up to your other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 1/3/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pandora | 11/26/2013

    " They set this up where there could be more books to follow - I would read them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Spiegel | 11/4/2013

    " 3.5 stars. Better than the last ones in her Eve Duncan series. Reads easier. Interesting premise to have a heroine who was blind for the first 20 years if her life. Cheeky hero. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Karkoff | 7/13/2013

    " Another good fast reading mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie | 4/13/2013

    " Good book, I liked the new character with her heightened senses (formerly blind). I hope this is a new series from this author because I like her books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 4/8/2013

    " An easy read and kept me interested. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherree | 3/4/2013

    " Probably would give this one 4.5. I haven't really liked the other co-written books, but I raced through this one yesterday, and stayed up too late to finish it. I like the main character, Kendra, and like that she has special "powers" with no supernatural element. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/8/2013

    " Very suspenseful and a thriller. Reminded me of the intensity of the show, Homeland. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobbi Foster | 1/22/2013

    " Good book. Kendra Michaels is one woman you don't want to mess with -- I like her! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 1/17/2013

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie Berezan | 1/2/2013

    " Not sure why but I had a hard time feeling a connection with any of the characters; didn't really get to like them or care about them. Found myself skimming some pages and forced myself to reread them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Larson | 9/25/2012

    " I wanted to like this book, but it was just too unbelievable. To have this music therapist who is the worlds expert on everything was just too much to handle. I generally love books by this author, but not this one. I have downloaded book 2 of the series, but just can't see reading it.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Indiveri | 7/26/2012

    " Good detective/FBI book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 7/7/2012

    " 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. "
