Iris Johansen has always been one of my favorite authors. I love her Kendra Michaels series just as much as Even Duncan. I also enjoy the fact that she finds some way to do a crossover in the series. In Night Watch Kendra tries to track down the doctor that forever changed her life and gave her a new view of the world. When things get crazy she involves Lynch, which made me laugh. The guy that enjoys manipulating people gets manipulated himself by Kendra, it was great. There were so many new characters and one of my favorites was Jessie; kickass and taking names, very viscous with ball bearings.
The plot was clear and even though there was a lot going on, I never got lost. Just when you think you know what's going on it changes and you get swept up again. I loved every bit of Night Watch. Kendra’s mother cracks me up so bad. She’s so protective and even though she tries hard to give her daughter space, she’s there when needed. I loved reading about Kendra’s past and the days leading up to and after the surgery. The first time she opened her eyes...no spoilers, but it’s a great and touching scene. I have no problem recommending this great read. I hope that there will be another book in the series.
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.
