Publisher Description

An ex-cop, Finn was left literally blinded by violence. The one thing he can still see is the body of his wife, Dani, and a crime scene that won’t fade from his mind’s eye. Now a teacher, Finn never would have guessed that an isolated girls’ prep school could be every bit as dangerous as city streets. Especially when he stumbles upon a local girl lying in a graveyard in the middle of a raging blizzard.

Finn may live in a world of total darkness, but it’s about to get a splash of red. The memories that torment him still have the power to kill, and a group of innocent students has been put in harm’s way by a pair of vicious criminals stalking Finn for unknown reasons. Secrets are creeping from the shadows around him—the kind that even a man with perfect vision never sees until it’s too late. They’re about to become terrifyingly clear to Finn—and it all begins with the scent of blood.

    " Enjoyable and fast reading. But thinking back I can't identify anything outstanding about the book. I know it won several awards but it doesn't stand out as a prize winner for me. I found the capabiltiy of the blind ex-cop to be a little hard to believe. "

    " I devoured this fun, suspenseful book in a day. There's a great boarding school plot as well as a curious mystery about a former cop who teaches there. Totally entertaining, well-written and super page-turny. Highly recommended for total reading immersion. "
