Because of her amazing skills of observation from all of her senses, she is often called into consult by the FBI. She is a reluctant consultant, but her skills are key to solving serious crimes.
I was curious to see how I would about this book. Night Watch was OK, but not as interesting as the Eve Duncan books usually are. Eve is such a wonderful character and I haven't warmed up to Kendra in the same way. However, I did find that the storyline in this book was much more interesting than in Night Watch, ...more

Number one, the main story just seemed a little too far fetched. Maybe Kendra is just too good, so they have to make the villains worse and worse, but it just stretched credibility to me.
Number two, what will it take for Kendra & Lynch to finally get together???? This is the 5th book and she's still making excuses????
On the plus side, I really do like watching the team of ...more

I’ve been invested in the Kendra Michaels series for the last five years and it’s easily my favorite series from Johansen. The chemistry between Adam and Kendra is off the charts, and I can never get enough of their banter and sexual tension.

Even though I’ve read countless serial killer books, I found the criminal ...more

Day 1: I finished reading Night Watch and wondered how I had gotten behind on this Kendra Michaels series, because it hits all the right notes with me. It has action, mystery, intelligent casework, sexual tension, and humor. I went straight to Goodreads to see when the next book would be available since it came out last summer. Yay, the Look Behind You would be out in July. I hurried to Netgalley to request an ARC. Day 2: My request for the ARC was approved. I downloaded the eARC and started
