Book Review-Auditory Viewpoint-Lillian R. Melendez

Tuesday, October 28, 2014


This is the second book I have read by this author. The first was Dismantling Vindictiveness--needless to say I liked it cause here I am again with another of her books!

Someone is stalking Anna. Her sister, Gloria, has to teach her how to use all her senses to figure out who the person is! You see Gloria is totally blind and at first nobody, least of all Anna, believes she can actually help. When people start getting murdered the FBI gets involved-now you know they really don't think Gloria can help--

Can Gloria teach Anna to really use all her senses? Will they find the murderer or will the FBI? The ending will definitely throw you-you will not see it coming!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

Gloria Rank has lived her entire life in the dark. Blind since birth, she has made a name for herself as a respected talk radio show host in New Jersey. When her younger sister, Anna, has her identity stolen and a man is murdered outside her apartment, Anna becomes the prime suspect in an FBI investigation. But when bodies begin piling up around her, the FBI has to admit that she is being stalked by a murderer.
With the FBI focused in the wrong direction, it is up to Gloria to teach Anna to use her other senses--hearing, touch, taste, and smell--which she never really had to completely rely on before to help uncover a ring of identity thieves and stop the killer from taking her life, and perhaps Gloria's as well!

Their only hope for survival is an experiment in perception that will unearth heartbreaking secrets and catapult Gloria into a darkness of the heart beyond any that she has ever known.

It's always great when you find an author you enjoy so much that you go back for more of their offerings. I've rarely done that, but there have been a few!

This sounds like a real thriller, now why would the FBI think that a blind woman would be capable of these murders. SMH
