The main character is a young woman who started seeing dark, swirling auras over people who will soon die, but Kate has no way of knowing what they will die from. However, she learned in the first book, that sometimes, if she can figure out what the person is probably going to die from, she might be lucky enough to save them. At the same time, she has to try not to notice the impending doom of random strangers she encounters on the train or elsewhere. It is very stressful to have just enough foreknowledge to know that someone is going to die soon, but not of what cause or at a precise time. Kate has to try not to worry about every person she encounters. However, in this book, she bumps into a politician and his aide, who both have death auras. She figures that means it isn't a health issue, but an accident or assassination that would take out both men. She decides to stalk them and try to figure out and prevent whatever is about to happen. Meanwhile, her best friend, who doesn't know about her ability to see death auras, shows up with one around her! How can she save her friend? If she tries to explain her ability, her friend, a doctor, is likely to think she is mentally ill. So, there are multiple people Kate is trying to save; and therefore, several mysteries she is trying to solve. It's very engaging and takes place in London and the surrounding area.

Feeling a need for a suspense novel, I flipped through my list of books that interested me on Kindle Unlimited, all found through one of my many book emails, and landed on this one. I am glad I did. Double Blind is filled with suspense, danger and a bit of a mystical tone that was just right for a lazy Sunday. Although this is the second in a series, I was able to catch on immediately to Kate’s situation and never felt lost or confused. I was intrigued, however, by glimpses into the previous story.
I would never want to be Kate Benedict. For you see, Kate has a secret. She can see auras around the heads of people who are slated to die – and die soon. So, imagine her shock and pain when she sees an aura around the top candidate for the position of British Prime Minister. She knows something terrible is going to happen. But what can you do, when you have no proof of danger except a mystical cloud no one else can see? She has to do something. But what? And when her best friend Anita, a surgeon, and Anita’s boss both develop auras as well, Kate is going to have to come “out of the closet” to her best friend – a scientist, who is determined that Kate needs psychiatric assistance instead of believing her.
There is action, suspense, and a very British turn-of-phrase in this novel, and I greatly enjoyed it. The writing is tight, the characters well-developed, and the storyline intriguing and very “ripped from the headlines” in a manner that kept me reading for much too long. Set in London, the writing painted pictures in my mind that left me fully satisfied with the reading experience.
