Description

From the Edgar-nominated author of Trust No One and Joe Victim “who uses words like lethal weapons” (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times), a thriller about a blind teenager who receives a corneal donation and begins to see and feel memories from their previous owner—a homicide detective who was also his father.

Joshua is convinced there is a curse on his family.

It’s taken loved ones from him, it’s robbed him of his eyesight, and it’s the reason why his father was killed while investigating the homicide of a young woman.

Joshua is handed an opportunity he can’t refuse: an operation that will allow him to see the world through his father’s eyes. As Joshua navigates a realm of sight, he gets glimpses of what these eyes might have witnessed in their previous life. What, exactly, was his dad up to in his role as a police officer? And what, exactly, were the circumstances surrounding his death?

There are consequences to the life his father was living, including the wrath of a man hell-bent on killing, a man who is drawing closer and closer to Joshua. Soon, Joshua discovers a world even darker than the one he has emerged from—a world in which the gift of sight comes with dire, dangerous consequences that threaten everything that Joshua holds dear.

A riveting thriller filled with hidden secrets and unspeakable horrors that will keep you guessing until the very last page, A Killer Harvest is a “powerful, thought-provoking novel” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).
