About:

How can she protect herself from an enemy she can’t see?

Law school graduate Whitney Garrison is a survivor. She admirably deals with an abusive boyfriend, her mother’s death, mounting student debt, dwindling job opportunities, and a rare neurological condition that prevents her from recognizing human faces.

But witnessing a murder might be the crisis she can’t overcome.

The killer has every advantage. Though Whitney saw him, she has no idea what he looks like. He knows where she lives and works. He anticipates her every move. Worst of all, he’s hiding in plain sight and believes she has information he needs. Information worth killing for. Again.

As the hunter drives his prey into a net of terror and international intrigue, Whitney’s only ally, Detective Leo Baroni, is taken off the case. Stripped of all semblance of safety, Whitney must suspect everyone and trust no one—and hope to come out alive.

My thoughts:

Siri has started writing in this new genre and I read her book before this one and loved it so I was very excited to read this one.

I can’t even imagine having face blindness. It made it interesting to read because we are in first person so the whole time the reader is also face blind, we never see anyone’s face. I wonder, though, if that is why I felt a bit disconnected from this book? I struggled with that throughout.

It started off engaging but as it went on I kind of got tired of hearing about all the men that had a crush on Whitney. It was like no man couldn’t walk by her without falling in love. That seemed a bit unrealistic.

There was also no Christian content. It was a clean fiction, but I don’t recall any faith in this book. This could have easily been tied in with her blindness and God helping her to see with the eyes of her heart? I don’t know, just my idea. Or a lesson in trust?

Overall, it was interesting but not what I was hoping for.
