The Johansens have done it again! The mother-and-son writing duo have spun a web of deceit and suspense so taut and fascinating, it is bound to hold you captive within its silken threads.

As always, they craft characters that lure us deep inside their latest mesmerizing mystery. This time out, pop sensation Delilah Winter is kidnapped before a live audience at the Hollywood Bowl, where the star’s former bodyguard, Jessie Mercado, and Dr. Kendra Michaels are in attendance.

Not only must they work together if they’re to get to the bottom of the matter, but they must also collaborate with the FBI to hunt down the missing star, and hopefully find her before the worst possible scenario becomes the most likely outcome. To do so, they tirelessly race against the clock and search for clues that may lead them to the iconic star.

During this high stakes game of cat and mouse, it quickly becomes apparent that no one ever really knows another human being’s secrets and motivations, at least until disaster strikes.

In Blink of an Eye, the Johansen’s write with precision and cunning, bringing crime scenes to vivid life and propelling us into the mind of a dangerous kidnapper. The result is an intense whodunnit that keeps us guessing throughout the duration of the novel. This is one thriller you’re not going to want to miss!
