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 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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Mixture of Character and Plot January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
InSight is different. No cookie-cutter characters, clichéd situations, or tired plot twists here. And this is what makes it so wonderful. Obviously the author did a lot of research into two entirely different disabilities--blindness and deafness. Then she mixed together two interesting, strong characters, threw in a zinger of a surprise or two, made things extremely difficult for her characters and wrapped it all up into a very satisfying read. I look forward to reading many more books by Polly Iyer. If they're all as good as this one, I'll be missing a lot of sleep because I'll be staying up so late to read just one more chapter. And then another. And another . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! April 11, 2013
I borrowed this book through my Prime account, but I think I'll buy Polly's remaining books I haven't read. I'm not as discriminating a reader as some who have commented. I write technical documents. My stuff is good because I realize the value of reader comments to the point that I actually host "commenting" contests at work (where I am judge and jury) and hand out movie tickets to get people to review my technical docs. Nothing like a little fun to get someone to read your boring stuff! Tech writers are not experts at weaving plots, just tying up ends. I didn't find loose ends at all. I thought Polly crafted an entertaining story and I whipped right through it. I think her writing style is forthright and focused. These stories help me keep my sanity in my currently insane world at work, where our company is shipping our jobs out to other states faster than you can blink.
