"A terrific, terrifying, ripping read'this is a thriller you won't put down. Shapiro is the new queen of suspense."
--Deborah Crombie, author of Dreaming of the Bones
With two college-bound teenagers and a pile of past-due bills, Suki Jacobs finally has the case that could make her career as a forensic psychologist: evaluating the sanity of Lindsey Kern, a convicted murderer claiming to be innocent'and clairvoyant. Awaiting a new trial, Suki's professional judgment could free Lindsey'who insists the real killer was a ghost'or find her criminally insane for life.
This complex case soon takes an eerie similarity in Suki's own life when her 17-year-old daughter, Alexa, has a premonition that her ex-boyfriend is dead. The very next day the boy is murdered'and Alexa becomes the main suspect. Desperate to prove her daughter's innocence, Suki will turn everywhere for answers except to Lindsey, the one woman whose own haunted past and psychic insights might save Alexa. Can Suki go beyond the boundaries of her own reality to see the truth ... before it's too late?
"Put Blind Spot at the top of your nighttime reading list, though I have a feeling you'll be keeping the bedroom light on long after you close the covers of this book."
--Jeremiah Healy, author of The Only Good Lawyer and Invasion of Privacy

Barbara Shapiro is the author of four suspense novels, all set in the Boston area: Blind Spot, See No Evil, Blameless and Shattered Echoes. She has been called a "master of mystery" by the Boston Globe and "a master " by the Boston Herald. Robert B. Parker says her latest, Blind Spot, is "wonderfully crafted, beautifully written and solid as a rock." Gothic Journal proclaims See No Evil to be "a masterpiece," the reviewer for Mostly Murder maintains Blameless contains the "most effective, yet logically inevitable ending" she has ever read, and the Boston Globe declares Shattered Echoes "repeatedly touches a raw spot that can only be soothed by turning every page until it's over." Barbara's books have been translated into German, Greek, Japanese, and film rights have been optioned.
A sociologist who specializes in criminology and deviant behavior, Barbara has taught at Tufts University and is the author of the non-fiction book, The Big Squeeze: Balancing the Needs of Aging Parents, Dependent Children and You.

A member of the board of directors of the New England Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, and past president of the New England Chapter of Sisters in Crime, Barbara lives outside of Boston with her husband and two young children. She is at work on her fifth novel.Review:
