From #1 bestselling author, J.R. Rain comes the heart-pounding, heart-breaking thrill ride of the year.
Five years ago, Lee Jordan was nearly killed on the job. Now deaf, blind, and mute, he's recovered enough to live a routine but silent life.
However, now, the LAPD needs him back...
When the cases of many missing persons are tied together with the same M.O., Lee Jordan is called in to help locate people who seemingly walked away from their everyday lives. But did they? Lee's only assets are his guide dog, fourteen years of experience as a homicide detective -- and an intriguing American Sign Language translator named Rachel.
Just as Lee begins to discover something remarkable about himself, he must engage in a battle of wits with a murderer he can't see or hear. With no weapons but his own mind -- and a guide dog with a heart of gold -- he sets off alone in Los Angeles to investigate the disappearances.
It's only a matter of time before more people may die under nefarious circumstances. And the manner of death could put the entire city at risk from... something even more dangerous.
Lee Jordan knows there is more to fighting crime than meets the eye, or ear, or voice. But will he survive his courageous solo pursuit of a twisted killer on the mean streets of L.A.? And can he really stop a madman by himself?

"Wow! I am absolutely blown away! This book is an emotional hard hitter. Rain really doesn't pull any punches, he puts you right in there in the middle of it with Lee. Which is an amazing roller coaster ride. You would think that a blind, deaf, and mute main character would scream 'boring', but it's anything but! The searing emotional loss, the gingerly putting himself back together again, the relentless search for meaning, his absolute devotion to his guide dog Betsie." ?Amazon reviewer
"This form of storytelling is very intimate. It feels like the protagonist is speaking directly to you. Sharing their most private thoughts. Lee's story is beautiful. I thought it would be an awkward read given his condition. Not at all. He is coming out of his cocoon in this story. I hope he speaks to J.R. again so we can revisit him." ?Amazon reviewer
"What an amazing storyline! Completely blew me away. I was pulled in from the beginning and couldn't put this book down. The storyline was well written and well thought out. It was full of mystery, hope and humor. Lee had such a humorous outlook. I loved his sarcasm. His journey was quite astounding. I laughed, teared up and laughed again." ?Amazon reviewer
"I'm not one to usually leave a review for a book, but WOW this one was great. Loved the whole premise and you really got to know the main character." ?Amazon reviewer
"A supernatural story that was a treat for all my emotions. I found this book to be more emotional than I had anticipated. The mystery was almost secondary. It is an achingly moving story of a severely disabled ex cop, hurt on the job, his beloved canine companion, the earthly people in his life and the other worldly angels who make his life worth living. That he solves a disturbingly sick crime is a testament to the angels around him. I carried my Kindle into a public place but had to put it away as my tears flowed freely as I turned the pages. Unlike anything I have ever read and I have been around for a long time. Be prepared, be open and enjoy! ?Amazon reviewer
