Double Blind (Kendra Michaels #6) by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen

Hardcover, 336 pages
Published July 17th 2018 by St. Martin's Press

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.

My Thoughts…

Oh my… another winner from Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen.   I started the Kendra Michaels series about 2 books back and have not been able to pass up reading them.    They are books that I know will entertain, keep my attention, and make me think while reading them.  

With Double Blind we find Kendra pulled into another FBI investigation where someone is targeting guests at a wedding.    A video of the wedding is given to Kendra and that is her only clue to start the investigation.    While it was never really shared how Kendra had anything to do with the wedding, I came to the conclusion that her reputation was the reason that she was given the video with the assumption that her amazing skills to solve crimes would be put to use.   Of course, this is exactly what Kendra does.  

The crime part was interesting and I can easily see how it will feed into future books in this series but what I really enjoyed was the relationship between Kendra and Lynch.   They circled each other, pushed each other, and never really confessed their feelings.   I feel like they trust and like each other a lot but they don’t know how to open their hearts and lives to allow them to accept each other in their everyday lives.  Double Blind’s ending set it up for there to be much more to come for these wonderful characters and I am excited to see where it will lead.
