Title: Double Blind (Kendra Michaels #6)
Author(s): Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen
Stars: 4 out of 5
I wanted to love Double Blind by Iris and Roy Johnansen but for some reason this book was lacking. They created an amazing synopsis that will have reader jumping for the book but fail to full fill those expectations. IN many ways I felt like I was reading a half done super hero story that couldn't find its grove.
The story was more about the relationship and less action packed as the other books in the series which seems to be the main drive of the series.
While some readers will be happy to have more relationship development other will wonder where the voice of the series.
The author has an interesting voice and this book is a series and not a stand alone novel.
Pushing though the book I found the story line to flow well and readers will enjoy the story as it builds into the next of the next Kendra Michael series.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher St. Martin's Press for the advance copy of Iris and Roy Johansen Double Blind.
Kendra Michaels is reluctant to help the FBI with the most recent case they've brought to her...until she hears the details: The body was found just blocks away from Kendra’s condo. The man 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. And just one week before the attempted delivery of this mysterious video, the groom in the video was murdered.
As the body count rises, Kendra joins forces with private investigator Jessie Mercado and agent-for-hire Adam Lynch as they discover that each victim played a part in convicting a serial killer years before. Someone has clearly taken up his mantle to exact a sadistic form of vengeance. But who is it? A family member? An old partner? Or is it possible that the wrong man was convicted and the serial killer himself has returned to continue his sick spree?
