She was safe in a world of darkness.
Now danger threatens in the cold light of day…


Before 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 so 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 20th century. He views himself not as a monster but as an artist. And he is not working alone.
 
In Iris Johansen''s Sight Unseen,  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.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER 1   “NICE TO MEET YOU, KENDRA. Sorry I’m late. I’m Dean Halley.” Kendra Michaels stood and shook hands with the handsome man who had just dashed into the Gaslamp Bar and Restaurant. She was experiencing a sinking feeling. Halley’s smile was a couple shades too white. He was also too good-looking and too well dressed. He breathed casual elegance and easy charm. Mom, what have you gotten me into? Halley’s brows rose. “You are Kendra, right?” “Yes.” She forced a smile. “Sorry I had to cancel last week. Things got complicated.” He shrugged. “It happens. But we’re here now, so that’s what matters.” He was also too polite. Oh, for God’s sake, give the guy a break. It was her mother’s first attempt at arranging a blind date, and anyone but Kendra would have said that she’d done well. Of course, the evening was still young. Kendra had come straight from the office, where she had conducted five music-therapy sessions back-to-back. Her clients couldn’t have been more different from each other, ranging in age from eight months to ninety-two years. Her techniques varied for each patient, with simple mood-soothing music for some, with more complex exercises to draw out others who were autistic and emotionally withdrawn. Not all would respond to her techniques, but she had high hopes for a few of them. Despite the presence of this charming and too-perfect man
