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.

"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."

    " 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. "
