Night Watch/Iris Johansen & Roy Johansen/342 pgs.
Kendra Michaels was born blind, and as a result, spent the first twenty years of her life in darkness. It wasn't until she was accepted into a trial study program with Dr. Charles Waldridge that her life changed drastically. His experimental operation on Kendra was a success--she was able to see for the first time in her life. Fast forward around ten years later, when Dr. Waldridge unexpectedly shows up at a conference in which Kendra is the speaker. They have dinner, but during the evening Kendra gets the feeling Dr. Waldridge is withholding something from her. The next day, Kendra is called in by the police--Dr. Waldridge is missing. Kendra has astute investigative skills, and calls in Adam Lynch, an agent-for hire, to help her unravel the mystery of Dr. Waldridge's disappearance. There is more going on under the surface than a random missing person case, and the Johansens take the reader on a wild ride throughout the story. Highly recommended.
