Double Blind – Iris Johansen & Roy Johansen
I was fortunate to receive this novel from Netgalley.com as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.
Kendra Michaels is a music therapist with a special gift for sensing things that others cannot. Born blind, she honed her other senses as a child, before a miraculous stem cell treatment restored her sight. As a result, her special abilities are frequently called upon by the FBI.
Adam Lynch is a former FBI operative, who now freelances wherever needed. He and Kendra have a mutual respect – and something more – that Kendra declines to examine too closely. Kendra calls upon him frequently to hone her self defense skills. They are working on such, as the novel opens.
Meanwhile, a young woman with a gunshot wound is fleeing her killer, desperate to get an envelope to Kendra. She bursts out of an alley, and into a city street where she is struck by a vehicle and killed. The police find the envelope addressed to Kendra, but Kendra is mystified. She did not know the woman, and the enclosed flash drive holds only the video of a wedding reception, for a couple that Kendra has never met. Intrigued by the situation, both Kendra and Adam begin to investigate.
Then the bride of the video is seemingly kidnapped from her home, and a quest for answers leads to a near death experience for both Kendra and Adam. As they race to find answers, they find themselves pitted against a powerful
organization that seemingly will stop at nothing to keep some secrets buried…
This book takes off like a runaway train and doesn’t stop until you turn the last page! Strong heroic characters, relentless action, and enough sexual tension to keep you coming back for more! I can’t wait for the next installment of the Kendra Michaels’ series!! A great read!!
