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 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 twentieth century. He views himself not as a monster, but as an artist. And he is not working alone. 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.

I hope writing books is not their day job, they will starve if it is. I actually listened to the entire book, I guess I am a glutton for punishment. In short the characters as described are ridiculous, the story line must have been written by a twelve year old and the narrator was terrible. I could have written and narrated a book at worst equal to this. Total waste of time and money
