Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen in their new book, “Close Your Eyes book coverClose Your Eyes” Book One in the Kendra Michaels series published by St. Martin’s Press introduces us to Kendra Michaels.

From the back cover:  WHAT YOU DON’T SEE…

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.

Yes, it is true, this type of character has been done before, not only in books but the movies and comics as well. Having said that let me assure you that up until now it has not been done like this before. Kendra Michaels is a unique character. Yes, she was blind and trained her other four senses to heightened awareness to compensate. Now that she has her eyesight restored Kendra is like a super weapon that is invaluable in law enforcement. There is a lot going on in this book. There are multiple murders, Kendra’s ex-lover is missing and there seems to be a high-level conspiracy involving multi millions of dollars.  The family Johansen have given us a very clever mystery thriller that is going to have you reading just as fast as you can trying to keep up with what happens next.
