Hindsight by Iris Johansen & Roy Johansen

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 #1 New York Times and Edgar Award winning writing duo Iris and Roy Johansen.

Dr. Kendra Michaels, blind for the first twenty 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…

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F Thriller, Mystery

I have not read the previous books in this series, so I am unsure if it would have helped me understand this book more. However, I did feel, especially at the beginning, that maybe there was some of the backstory that I was missing.

Kendra Michaels has a special gift that everyone wants to utilize. While she's on a mission in the Middle East, hot on the trail of a bad group of people, Lynch, her sometimes friend, sometimes lover, pulls her out. Needless to say, Kendra is less than impressed and downright furious that he did that.

But Lynch has his reasons and while you only really see hints of his ability to love Kendra throughout the book, he is a complex character who you sometimes really like and sometimes just want to slap.

Kendra, while mad that she's back home, is thrown right into another case. Kendra grew up attending a school for the blind. But even after an experimental surgery restored her sight, she never forgot where she came from. When two beloved people from that school are murdered, Kendra is called in to try and figure out what it going on.

With drugs, taunting, and people out to get Kendra, it will take all of her abilities and her friends to solve what is happening at the school.

This is a fast-paced story that has a lot of moving parts. At times, I found it difficult to figure out who was talking, and the relationship aspect between Lynch and Kendra was dizzying. But it was a quick read and I wanted to figure out how everything would fall together. It's well done and I really enjoyed it.
