Overview

Sometimes, what you can’t see will kill you…

Born blind, Kendra Michaels spent the first twenty years of her life living in the darkness. Then, thanks to a revolutionary medical procedure developed by England’s Night Watch Project, she was given the gift of sight. Her highly-developed senses (honed during her years in the dark), combined with her new found vision, have made her a remarkable investigator, sought after by law-enforcement agencies all over the country. But her newest case becomes deeply personal as she uncovers the truth about the shadowy organization that has given her so much.

Kendra is surprised when she is visited by Dr. Charles Waldridge, the researcher who gave her sight. All is not well with the brilliant surgeon; he’s troubled by something he can’t discuss with Kendra. When Waldridge disappears the very night he visits her, Kendra is on the case, recruiting government agent-for-hire Adam Lynch to join her on a trail that leads to the snow-packed California mountains. There they make a gruesome discovery: the corpse of one of Dr. Waldridge’s associates. But it’s only the first casualty in a white-knuckle confrontation with a deadly enemy who will push Kendra to the limits of her abilities. Soon she must fight for her very survival as she tries to stop the killing…and unearth the shocking secret of Night Watch.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Naked Eye

“The Johansens power-up the emotional stakes in this page-turning thriller that cements Michaels’ reputation as a force to be reckoned with.” —Booklist

“Edgy…[a] flashy romantic thriller.” –Publishers Weekly

An unorthodox investigator is desperate to save her beloved mentor from possible death.Music therapist Kendra Michaels has every reason to be grateful to Dr. Charles Waldridge. Born blind, she can now see because of an experimental surgery developed by Waldridge and his colleagues in England’s Night Watch Project. All the years of her blindness allowed her to develop amazing skills in hearing, smelling, and noticing tiny details others would miss. In the past she’s helped the FBI and former agent Adam Lynch, whom she holds at arm’s length even though he’s deeply in love with her. After Kendra (Close Your Eyes, 2012, etc.) has dinner with Waldridge, who claims to be visiting California to raise funds, he goes missing . Kendra works with the police and FBI to find him but also calls on Lynch’s special resources. Another member is soon added to the team: tough ex-Army private investigator Jessie Mercado, whom Waldridge had hired to watch one of his colleagues. A friend of Lynch’s who’s following up on the Night Watch project in England is killed soon after sending him some puzzling photos of a lab in a supposedly empty factory. At length Kendra realizes that the project Waldridge is working on has something to do with creating working organs and that someone is using all means available to force him to reveal his secrets. Despite dire warnings from Lynch and Jessie, she insists on taking part in a dangerous rescue attempt. Despite the requisite mysterious evildoers and violence, this thriller remains curiously unsatisfying, perhaps because the formidable skills the heroine displays don’t include common sense.
