Murder disrupts a blind PI’s honeymoon in this mix of detective novel and psychological thriller from the author of Death Knell.

The wife of a wealthy Tennessee mining tycoon, Marcia Fillmore has worked hard to get to where she is in life. She’s also a woman with a dark past, one she’s put behind her … until a man walks into the Black Pigeon in Gatlinburg and takes a seat beside her at the bar. Marcia doesn’t take kindly to him threatening her with blackmail, following her home—or seeing her kiss a man who isn’t her husband. Everything could fall apart. No, something must be done …

A former intelligence officer in the army, Capt. Duncan Maclain lost his sight in World War I. Since then, he’s honed his other senses and become a successful private detective whose unique skills are sought after frequently. So it’s no surprise when he arrives in the Smoky Mountains with his new bride and the sheriff asks him for help investigating a suspicious car wreck. With evidence that points to foul play, the sheriff and Maclain know they’ve got a killer to catch—but she’s not going to go down without a fight …

“Ingenious. ” —Kirkus Reviews

“The most completely evil and yet interesting woman you’ve read about in a long time … Superlative!” —Chicago Daily News

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    Birgitta Johansson

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    Birgitta Lindh

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
