On Order



A serial killer is on the loose in San Diego with a most unusual M.O. With each kill, the perpetrator leaves behind mystifying random objects. In this confusing array of unrelated evidence, the one thing that is clear is that the murders all have one characteristic in common: they all require the specific skills of Kendra Michaels, hired gun for both the CIA and FBI.

Booklist Review

Formerly blind Kendra Michaels brings her extraordinary sensory perception to bear when a string of murders unnerves the San Diego community. The killer is cunning and preternaturally careful; disparate pieces of evidence found at each crime scene seem to have no direct bearing on the case at hand. As the murders escalate, however, Michaels and her good friend private investigator Jessie Mercado determine that each crime's tokens can be traced back to cold-case murders committed around the country over a number of years. When FBI agents from each of the prior crime locations join locals Roland Metcalf and Gina Carlson, Michaels feels the need to strike out on her own to solve the case. Intelligent, independent, and intuitive, Michaels may be the FBI's best chance at catching an allusive killer, yet rogue agent Adam Lynch inserts himself into the investigation as Michaels' protector and would-be lover. Deliberately paced and sufficiently nuanced, the latest installment in the Johansens' Kendra Michaels thriller series, following Night Watch (2016), offers further insights into this powerful character.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2017 Booklist

Publisher's Weekly Review

In Johansen and son's winning fifth Kendra Michaels novel (after 2016's Night Watch), FBI special agent Roland Metcalf visits Kendra, a music therapist with heightened senses, at her San Diego, Calif., studio, to ask for her help with an investigation into a series of bizarre killings. Special agent Gina Carson, Roland's arrogant partner, is skeptical of Kendra's qualifications, until Kendra, who was blind for many years before surgery restored her eyesight, demonstrates her amazing powers by deducing personal information about Gina. After Kendra gets on board, former FBI agent Adam Lynch, who has partnered with her on previous cases, comes to San Diego. Adam acts as Kendra's protector as the sexual tension between the two of them grows and Kendra gets closer to discovering the identity of a vicious killer who seems to know her every move. A long list of well-developed suspects makes this one of the more complex and satisfying entries in this bestselling romantic suspense series. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
