Deacon Munroe is not your average investigator. He’s intelligent, cultured, well-connected. And totally blind. Washington DC is Munroe’s city. Now it’s a city shaken to the core by the death of a high-ranking general and his wife. All the evidence suggests that the general killed his wife before taking his own life. Deacon Munroe does not trust what other people see – only what he knows is true. What Munroe soon knows is that the general's death is part of a far greater plan, a sophisticated and brutal plot to kill thousands of innocent people, including those closest to Munroe himself. But with only a small team at his aid, and just hours to stop a devastating attack on the city, can Munroe unearth the truth in time to bring justice to the city?

Ethan Cross is one of my favorite mystery/suspense authors and I thoroughly enjoyed his novel Blind Justice. Hopefully it will not be the last we see of his star investigator, Deacon Monroe. Deacon Monroe is smart, determined, and doesn't give in to threats. He is also blind and depends more on what he knows to be true than what most folks 'see'. Cross has developed some strong characters to assist Deacon as he journeys through life and crime. His assistant, Annabelle, an ex-con/marine named Black and countless antagonists who can't get one up on the blind investigator. The story is fast paced and moves from one murder to the next with personal loss to our hero as well as common sense deductive reasoning. Although I found it a bit challenging to believe in the expertise of this blind investigator, I found Cross'es writing to be plausible overall and very entertaining. Well done Ethan Cross!

A fast paced thriller packed with violence in this book. Blind Justice, written by Ethan Cross, centers around an investigator, Deacon Munroe. A case of a murder/suicide drives Munroe to start the investigation regardless of the threats that he continues to encounter. And along the way, Munroe uses his intellect and connections to help him. The overarching question is whether Munroe will solve the crime before more people get hurt. But at the risk of revealing too much about the book’s plot, I will say no more about that. Personally, I enjoyed the quick pace that the author Cross used in Blind Justice, because it made me feel that I was making progress through the chapters. The suspense that Cross builds also kept me as the reader feeling engaged. However, there is a lot of violence and death. Without wanting to give too much about this book’s plot away, I can say after reading Blind Justice that in nearly every chapter, a character dies. As a result, the content of the book became dreary for this reader because of the violence and death in nearly every chapter. For the reasons above, I rate Blind Justice 3 out of 5 stars.

This thriller story was very nicely done and had plenty of action. The characters were well developed and enjoyable. I felt as if I personally knew them. Deacon Munroe is blind but he doesn't let that stop him from solving the mystery. As a handicapped person, it was also an inspirational read., there is always a way to accomplish what you want. This book also showed the importance of friends and family. This book will have you reading to the end. I really enjoyed it.

4.5 stars This is a fantastic book very well written. The story got me hooked since the beginning, which I honestly didnt think would happen. I am not going into any details because even if I give a brief explanation that would ruin the first chapter. But what I can say is: I hate books with unnecessary description and thriller, mystery books tend to be like that but this one was perfect everything was important and I even found myself waiting for more information; details were great and better yet the characters were very likeable. Im really hoping for a series Deacs intelligence blew my mind. Pleasure to read and as I said everything was so well written that it was like playing a movie in my head. Congrats to the author.

What a fast paced, whirlwind mystery by Ethan Cross. From the first page, the plot springs out of the starting gate and doesn’t slow down. Deacon Monroe was an excellent investigator until the accident that left him blind. He honed his other 4 senses and picked up his career. Then his friend, General George Easton and his wife are brutally murdered. The NCIS investigators are ready to dismiss the case as a murder/suicide but Deacon knows this can’t be and won’t give up the investigation. This begins an intense investigation that leads to big corporations and perpetrators with such evil intentions, they must be stopped!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The storyline was interesting and intricate and kept you guessing at the direction it was heading. All the characters are well thought out and multifaceted. Finally, the writing is engaging that flowed from beginning to end. Mr. Cross is an engaging writer that writes a tale that is thrilling. This is a spelling binding mystery that you won’t be able to put down. Definitely pick this book up. Warning though, once you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down.

Deacon Munroe, a blind investigator, is called to work on the deaths of a friend, a top-ranking general and his wife. The reader already knows that the General died without revealing what his killer demands to know. However, the killer makes the General kill himself and so it looks like the General killed his wife and then himself. But Deacon, a remarkably skilled investigator, immediately realizes something is wrong with the crime scene. And so begins an unbelievable tale in which there is a far larger conspiracy to carry out a drone terrorist attack in the middle of Washington, D.C. at the National Mall. This is a middle-sized novel that packs enough action that it’s over the top of tension. The extremely perceptive skills of Deacon Munroe, accompanied with a calming sense of class and style, make the entire story fascinating as the rest of it feels like a montage of every crime novel that’s been written in the last five years. The success of a crime or thriller novel lies in including something unique that can’t be found in any other story or a particular style that enhances the stereotypical criminal story. Deacon Munroe is that person! Early on in the story, Munroe, suffers a great loss and soon thereafter he realizes that he’s always been in love with his late friend’s sister. But the hunt for answers lies larger than that attraction and Annabelle is not ready for Munroe’s brief attempts to get closer. The task at hand is to stop a killer from getting his hands on something that could be responsible for a chemical attack that would kill thousands. I’m not sure how I felt about this novel riddled with deaths, violence and surprising evil. No break in the action allows one to grab one’s breath. The reality of the possible terrorist action being planned is probably what is responsible for the tension one feels while waiting for how this action will unfold! Nice characterization and plot, Ethan Cross! Great for lovers of the mystery and crime genres!
