Close Your Eyes / Sight Unseen (MP3-CD) (Iris Johansen)
about this item
CLOSE YOUR EYESA 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 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.
SIGHT UNSEENBefore the experimental surgery that gave her sight, Kendra Michaels developed her other senses to an amazing capacity. Now she can identify a Nissan by the sound of its engine, a Norelco electric razor by the pattern of stubble it leaves behind, or an obscure colorless fire accelerant by its sweet smell. Law enforcement agencies clamor for her rare powers of perception and observation, too often disrupting the life she has built helping others through music therapy, because very often, only Kendra can get the job done.
But in this case, it’s Kendra who first realizes that the apparent traffic accident on San Diego’s historic Cabrillo Bridge is in fact a murder scene, and she rushes to alert the police before crucial evidence is destroyed. As the body count rises and one murder unveils another, a gruesome pattern emerges. Someone is killing people in ways that mirror Kendra’s most notorious cases. She has a fan: someone who admires her work and is twisted enough to show that admiration through murder—while naming himself after the biggest art forger of the twentieth century. He views himself not as a monster, but as an artist. And he is not working alone.
As the darkness closes in, near enough to touch Kendra and those she loves, Kendra must come face-to-face with her greatest fears—and her most ruthless enemy. A man who moves through the shadows, a man she may even know, who hides behind the mask of sanity, sight unseen.
