Book Description

Adult language and situations.

Psychologist Abigael Gallant fought her way back from her ex-husband’s brutal attack that killed their daughter and left her blind. Now she “reads” audio books, runs with a guide at a local track, and has a thriving practice that specializes in treating the newly disabled. The last thing she needs is another man in her life.

Enter Detective Luke McCallister, a cop forced into counseling a year after a gun blast during a meth lab take-down robbed him of his hearing. Luke is fighting hard to stay on the force, but computer work and fingerprint analysis are not what he has in mind. Initially reluctant to Abby’s therapy, Luke’s barriers tumble because Abby sees deeper into him than anyone ever cared to.

Though Luke’s lip reading is excellent, he refuses to “listen” to Abby’s warning that his romantic overture jeopardizes her professional ethics. But when break-ins and threatening computer messages escalate into a physical attack on Abby and her guide dog, Luke walks a fine line between cop, protector, and lover. Unable to deny their physical attraction, Abby and Luke tiptoe around their personal baggage and enter into a delicate relationship.

Then Abby is kidnapped. While Luke puts his life at risk to find her, Abby discovers the ghosts of her past are back to haunt her, and the man she once loved was as much of a victim as she.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carried Away December 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The best writers carry us along to a point where we are outside our comfort zone. As an inverate "cozy" reader, I took a chance on this sometimes violent thriller and have no regrets. Polly Iyer provides characters, plot and just plain good writing to carry along the reader to a satisfying conclusion. Good triumphing over evil is why I read mysteries and why you should read InSight.

Had me right from the start and never let me go. Loved the characters, will there be a sequel? The graphic sex scenes either could be amped up or cut, they didn't add to the story, it was really strong enough to stand on it's own. Really good story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner June 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Or if you read on Kindle, page "flicker". This book grabs you with the blurb - a blind heroine and a deaf hero and once you begin reading you don't want to stop. The plot is exciting and intricate with an unexpected twist. And as usual with Polly Iyer's books, the characterization of both hero and heoroine and secondary characters is superb with a special "insight" into the life of a blind person. This is a book you will not want to put down.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book had promise! April 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I liked the idea of the storyline better the way it was described than the way that the author carried it out. Her writing was pedantic and full of cliches. As I progressed farther into the story, I realized that it was a take on an old movie I'd seen, although details were different, of course. I was put off by her use of the f-word as well as a detailed sex scene...both completely unnecessary to further the plot. I don't recommend this book and won't read another by this author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good story line, but...... March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The storyline of the book captured my interest right away, but unfortunately it left a lot to be desired. Editing was spotty and missed too many incorrect words, tenses, misplaced punctuation marks, and other things. The characters......well, they lacked depth, maturity, and development that would have made the book so much better. Toward the end of the book it felt like the author was tired of it and just wanted to be done with it. I know I sure did!

So many of the issues that bothered me could/should have been covered by a good editor. Are they at such a premium these days that only the top earning authors get their attention?

5.0 out of 5 stars Page-turning romantic suspense April 14, 2015
By Lornwal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Intriguing romantic suspense with appealing characters and many plot twists along the way, Polly Iyer's INSIGHT is a gripping page-turner. I especially enjoyed the first half of the story, where the focus is on the relationship of two people who struggle with tragedies and injuries (she's been blinded, he's been deafened) that have shattered the lives they once led. Both have suffered profound despair and, with varying success, have tried to soldier on. Both the characters and their situations touched my heart and immediately grabbed my interest.

Despite deaf cop Luke's cynical comment that he and blind psychologist Abby "together make one Helen Keller," they actually find their lives greatly enriched by each other's company. Unfortunately, their lives are soon in very mortal danger from an evil that, for some time, remains a perplexing – and lethal – mystery.

Most of the characters are deftly drawn and seem fully-fleshed. I particularly liked the way in which Ms. Iyer gradually brings the reader to understand and change attitude toward one desperately troubled character, even though he has committed a terrible crime. I also thought the descriptions of Abby's needs and adjustments to blindness were compelling. I was disappointed, though, that besides receiving pats and hugs and being at the vet's for a time, guide dog Daisy didn't have much to do. However, less Daisy did allow Luke to assist Abby more than she would otherwise have allowed.

Overall, I very much enjoyed this story and recommend to all those who like well-written romantic suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better the Second Time! January 7, 2012
By Ellis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
InSight held my attention from the first page. Interesting characters meet their challenges head on and keep on going. The dialogue is crisp and often funny. "I live alone," Pete said, "so don't think you're interfering with a life. I don't have one."
The characters are appealing: There's Luke, whose superiors think he's "a lawsuit waiting to happen," and Abby, with "hair the color of dark chocolate," who listens without judging.
This is such a good book. I really enjoyed it.

March 13, 2013
I just read InSight for a second time--I sometimes do that with books I love. This one is well worth reading again. I discovered things I missed the first time when I was reading quickly to see what happened.
The characters in InSight drew me back and I wanted to add to my original review. Ms. Iyer has an amazing ability to share the emotions and imagine life through the mind of another. The empathy she feels takes the reader right into the story. Abby and Luke are well-developed, strong personalities that I could easily identify with.
The plot is complex and intriguing with plenty of twists and turns to keep me turning the pages all over again. It builds to a breathtaking climax that you won't be able to leave until the last page.
Ms. Iyer has a rich, elegant way with words, and her writing is smooth and precise. It's a pleasure to find such a well-written book. No wonder she's one of my favorite authors. I'm looking forward to her next her next book, and I highly recommend InSight.
