Short & Sweet Review: Double Blind by Iris Johansen & Roy Johansen


Title: Double Blind
Author: Iris Johansen & Roy Johansen
Series: Kendra Michaels, #6
Published: July 2018, St. Martin's Press
Format: Hardcover, 325 pages
Source: Library

Summary: 
Kendra Michaels, formerly blind and now a hired gun for law enforcement agencies who relies on her razor-sharp powers of observation, is reluctant to help the FBI with the most recent case they’ve brought to her. But then she hears the details: the body was found just blocks away from Kendra’s condo. The young woman was carrying an envelope with Kendra’s name on it, and inside was an SD card with what appears to be an innocuous video of a wedding reception. The woman died trying to get the video to Kendra, but for what purpose? Before Kendra and the FBI can answer that question, the bride is abducted from her suburban home.

And so the hunt is on for a killer whose nightmarish plan is slowly becoming clear. A plan that involves a powerful law firm and a multi-billion dollar corporation. As the body count rises, Kendra joins forces with private investigator Jessie Mercado and agent-for-hire Adam Lynch to stop the plot as it grows ever closer to its terrifying conclusion.

In Double Blind, Iris and Roy Johansen deliver an emotional, gripping new entry in the bestselling Kendra Michaels series.




***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.


My thoughts: It's no surprise that I will read just about anything Iris Johansen writes, and that includes the spin-off series that she and her son co-write featuring Kendra Michaels. I find Kendra to be such a unique character and she continues to prove that nothing and no one will stop her from stopping the bad guys.

Once again, Kendra is brought into a case with the FBI that literally has her name on it. But, she has Adam Lynch working by her side and ends up getting Jessie Mercado involved in the case as well. I love that each of these characters are all strong-willed characters and getting them together ends up in results. Of course, things go south when the killer targets someone very close to Kendra and I could really feel Kendra's pain and frustration at this point.

I love the chemistry between Kendra and Adam. They always seem to be circling each other but never quite know how to move forward to that next step. But the ending leaves us with some things to think about and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book, Hindsight, to see where things head!
