Shuman has established blind psychic Sherry moore as one of the most engaging protagonists in the realm of suspense, the perfect character around which to build a perennial franchise. “Sherry’s unique talent opens doors for her,” writes Publishers Weekly, “but it’s her determination and grit when things get rough that makes her such an appealing hero.”

As evident in the depraved predators that haunt his readers long past the final page, he not only has “the talent to put evil on the page and make it specific and real” (The Washington Post), but also the ability to deliver “fascinating characters, nonstop storytelling, and an explosive ending” (Robert Crais).

Set against the backdrop of heinous crimes perpetrated by Big Pharma run amok, Sherry fights for her life while confronting a question born of a miraculous medical innovation: Should she reclaim her sight or remain in the darkness that allows her to save so many lives?
