Blind for the first twenty years of her life, Kendra Michaels honed her other senses to almost superhuman perfection-and unintentionally became a secret weapon for the FBI. Her uncanny ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her made her a law-enforcement legend. Today, her expertise is called for once again.

When Kendra is approached by a dubious source about a serial murder investigation, her instincts tell her to steer clear. This time, however, the case is personal: The next name to turn up on the killer's hit list is Kendra's own ex-lover, an FBI agent who disappeared without a trace. Now it's up to Kendra to pick up the trail-or close her eyes again.forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close Your Eyes I loved the book. But then I have loved all the Iris Johansen books I have read. This is the first I have read that she co-authored with her son.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close your eyes Good read. Interesting perspective of the visibly impaired and the extraordinary abilities they develop using other senses. Some suspense and intrigue with nuances of romantic interest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close Your Eyes Very good page turner. Don't start unless you have time to get lost in it :-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting and exciting It's been a while since I read her novels and her joint collaboration with her son. This is much better than expected, with surprising twists and development that kept me on the edge of seat. If Kendra is a real person, she will be truly impressive. I guess for most of us, we tend to take our senses for granted. Unlike someone who does not have e luxury. Keep your stories coming!

CHAPTER1  KENDRA MICHAELS PULLED the strap over her head and adjusted her guitar in front of her. “We’re going to do something different today, Jimmy.”“No!”She ignored the outburst. Twelve-year-old Jimmy Matthews hated any variation in his routine, but she was determined to coax him, ever so slightly, from his comfort zone. “Look at me, okay?”Jimmy looked up at her, his dark eyes glittering with defiance. He was autistic, and it had taken weeks for him to feel comfortable enough to make eye contact with her. She’d regarded that as a major victory. She knew there were other breakthroughs to come, if only she could unlock the secrets of that bewildering yet fascinating mind of his.She held his gaze. “Jimmy, remember when I had you put your hand on my guitar last week? When I told you to feel the music?”He nodded.“You liked that, didn’t you?”He shrugged.“You could feel it, couldn’t you? I saw you tapping your fingers and moving your feet.”He thought for a moment. “I felt it all over.”“I know. And I thought to myself, this guy has rhythm. You know what that means, don’t you? It means you can feel the beat. You can feel it in your bones … and in your soul.”He looked away again. “I want to sing. I always sing.”“And you’re a really good singer.
