2) Badass character develop...I love Kendra and
3) I never saw the end coming...OMAHGAWD!
Every single book in this series gets better and better. I was knocked on my arse by the ending. I mean seriously knocked out.
Kendra and the core group that surround her have grown and I love visiting with them. Her talents of supreme observation are epic, and because of that the FBI can't help but need her help. And if there is even a blip that she is in danger...Lynch cannot stay away.
They are slowly coming to an understanding...I'm so ready for them to fully realize the scope of their relationship. But Kendra is a rock head. One of the reasons I love her character so much. She's smart, badass and so not a push over! Lynch is used to bull dozing over everyone, she won't have it. Perfect!
I don't to give away any spoilers so will carefully state where I feel the authors didn't quite fulfill expectations...and that's why it was flawed for me.
The reason Kendra was "chosen" was never explained so really doesn't make sense. The writing felt a bit disjointed - the story should flow seamlessly regardless of how many collaborators there are. And finally, there were several new characters introduced without enough background - each character seemed to have a featured moment with their "story", and not much else. I understand why they were needed, but it just adds to the feeling of incomplete characters.
Wow! This is the latest in the Kendra Michaels series. What a thriller mystery!
I couldn’t put this book down. Iris Johansen & her son, Roy Johansen, gave us
a good one. You get involved almost immediately.There are twists and turns
and I bet you’ll never figure out who the serial killer is—not until they’re ready
to reveal it. I’m usually very good at figuring them out early on —but not this time.
I did have one flitting thought and then threw it out. I shouldn’t have.
If you like mysteries and novels with a tory that you just can’t read fast enough
or turn the pages quick enough, then this book is for you. It well worth the time
and money you invest i it.
In “Look Behind You,” the fifth installment in their terrific Kendra series, everyday objects left behind at a string of local murders recall unsolved cases from multiple serial killers across the country. The authorities call in the once-blind-so-now-she-has-superacute-perception Dr. Michaels to do her uncanny Holmesian crime-site-reading thing.
The last thing Kendra wants to do is join a hunt for another killer. She’d rather apply her unique talents to her music-therapy patients, such as a nearly catatonic young boy she’s trying to help find a way back to his loving mother (think Sherlock meets The Miracle Worker, with Kendra much preferring the latter role).
But, this being a Johansen novel, the reluctant heroine is quickly pulled into what might be her darkest and most challenging case yet. And as usual with the authors, we’re in expert hands from the opening hook to the bone-chilling climax.
Along the way, we spend more time with a standout supporting character from the last book who feels like a up-and-coming star in the expanding Johansenverse — badass private detective Jessie Mercado (who, we learn, has an office above Santa Monica’s historic Aero movie house — how awesomely noirish is that?).
Again I ask: Why hasn’t Hollywood scooped up Kendra & Co. for a TV series?
This story has a good deal of action and our heroin is not a fluff. I was happy with the progression of characters and cannot wait till the next to see what happens.
