"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. 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. "-- Provided by publisher.

The mother and son writing team behind this novel have captured the essence of using a sixth sense (developed out of a long period of blindness) to stop a copycat serial killer. I do have one beef, which deals with the execution of the original killer - in real life a physician NEVER administers a lethal injection or other type of execution as it violates the modern Hippocratic oath to not play God; his or her only role is to confirm the condemned is actually dead. The ending leaves a lot of questions begging for a sequel, which I look forward to reading.

I enjoyed this book very much. Am amazed how much a person who gets their sight after 20 years can determine about a person. I was disappointed to find out that the book did not have a final ending. There is obviously going to be another Kendra Michaels follow up. Cannot find out from the Internet when it will be.
