How can you catch a killer when everyone thinks he’s dead?
Kendra Michaels was instrumental in bringing serial killer Eric Colby to justice. And yet, despite his apparent execution at San Quentin, Kendra is convinced that Colby is still alive. The problem is that she can’t prove it. Even her razor-sharp powers of observation-developed to an amazing capacity during the twenty years she spent blind and now in constant demand by law enforcement agencies-have gotten her nowhere.
But then a reporter who very publicly humiliated Kendra is murdered. Visiting the crime scene in search of anything that might link the brutal homicide to Colby, Kendra instead finds evidence that points to her. Finally Colby’s master plan becomes clear to her: he is framing Kendra for murder.
Suspicions mount and Kendra is thrust into deadly pursuit to clear her name and catch the killer no one believes exists anymore. A killer who is always nearby, watching, waiting to make his next move, even as everyone believes him to be dead. A killer whose trail of destruction is invisible to the naked eye, despite the carnage he leaves in his wake. It will take everything Kendra has to find and stop Colby-and save her own life one more time.
“Exciting… a thrilling race against time.”–Publisher’s Weekly
Review: The Naked Eye is a step out of my comfort zone. I love mysteries and thrillers to a lesser extent but I'm not usually one for books that feel like a weeknight tv drama, but something about this particular series drew me in. It is also the third book in the series. It is a stand alone novel, but to be honest, I wish I had read the other two books first. I have them, but I didn't have the time to read the series in order.
It is an enjoyable series, especially if you like shows like Medium. Kendra is really an interesting character, a former blind person who can hunt down serial killers. Its a unique super power, if you will and it made for some interesting and fun reading
