SIGHT UNSEEN by Iris Johansen, Roy Johansen Audio Edition
With over 60 readings to her credit Elisabeth Rodgers is an accomplished audio book narrator. She brings just the right amount of building suspense to this thriller by the Johansen team to keep you listening until the last word.
Kendra Michaels was born blind but at the age of 20 she underwent experimental surgery which almost miraculously gave her sight. However, before her operation she did, of course, develop her other senses to the nth degree. For instance she could identify the make of a car by the sound of its engine or the brand of an electric razor by the amount of stubble it leaves behind. Yes, her senses were and are that keenly developed. This is a unique and valuable gift that had various law enforcement agencies competing for her skills.
When four people are killed in a three car accident on San Diego’s Cabrillo Bridge almost immediately Kendra intuits that this was not an accident but murder. In fact, this so-called accident bears an amazing resemblance to a case of hers in Texas. Checking with San Diego’s FBI headquarters she learns of two more murders that resemble former cases of hers.
Obviously, there’s a psycho on the loose with Kendra at the center of his machinations. But, who, why, where and how can he/she be stopped?
Sight Unseen is a unique finely crafted thriller - enjoy!
