Iris Johansen, Roy Johansen – Hindsight


Investigator Kendra Michaels – whose former blindness has left her with uniquely insightful observational skills – must put her life on the line to catch a terrifying murderer setting his sights on some of society’s most vulnerable in this electrifying new novel from the number one New York Times and Edgar Award-winning writing duo Iris and Roy Johansen.

Dr. Kendra Michaels, blind for the first 20 years of her life before gaining her sight via a revolutionary surgical procedure, is a renowned investigator known for her razor-sharp senses – honed during her years in the dark – and keen deductive abilities.

Now, her skills are needed uncomfortably close to home. Two staff members have been murdered at a school for the blind where Kendra spent her formative years. But the murders are puzzlingly dissimilar: one victim was brutally stabbed, while the other was killed by a bullet to the head. Are the crimes related? Or is Kendra on the hunt for more than one dangerous killer?

With the killer (or killers) still on the loose, Kendra must put her life on the line to unravel a terrifying conspiracy. But Kendra soon discovers that she herself may hold the key to the deadliest secret of all.

I listen to a LOT of books (30 – 40 per year). Some are spectacular, most are ok but good enough to keep me entertained and engaged fairly well on my long commute. This is only the third one I have ever returned to Audible. I have read previous books by Iris Johanson and liked them well enough and I thought the main character sounded interesting in this one. But there is a totally unrealistic undeveloped plot and no real character development, just a supposedly professional investigator who behaves like a spoiled lovestruck teenager. I made it to chapter 8 and could not stand it any more. It’s dumb and I am done.
