At thirty-two, Benjamin Justice was one of Los Angeles best known journalists. He had the respect and envy of his colleagues, the admiration of his employers and the ear of the city's population. Until he won the Pulitzer Prize for one of his features and everything came crashing down. Found to have invented the subjects of his piece, Justice was forced to return the Pulitzer, was fired from his job, and became a pariah to most of his former colleagues.

Now in his mid-forties, still considered a disgrace to his former profession, HIV-positive, and once again single, Justice has once again begun to put his life back together. Under contract to a major publisher to write his autobiography, Benjamin Justice is trying to put all the elements of his life into perspective for the first time. While searching out a priest from his childhood, Justice enlists his closest friend's fiancé - a columnist for the Los Angeles Times - to bring pressure upon the powers that be to reveal the long-hidden truth about this almost forgotten priest. Then his friend's fiancé is killed in a tragic hit-and-run accident and Justice is called upon to look into the mysterious circumstances of the too-convenient accident. Reluctant at first, Justice soon finds himself in the midst of a complex case involving a decades old child murder, a powerful and controversial Cardinal, and elements of his own dark past.

John Morgan Wilson's Edgar and Lambda Literary Award winning Benjamin Justice novels are amongst the most highly regarded and widely praised crime fiction to have emerged in the past decade. Now, in Blind Eye, Benjamin Justice returns in the most compelling and controversial novel yet in this not-to-be missed series.

From the Back Cover:

Critical Praise for John Morgan Wilson

"With it's vivid dissection of Los Angeles' low life and intriguing characters, you may find it tough to put down."
- People (Beach Book of the Week) on Simple Justice

"A winner...a series as addictive as Sue Grafton's, James Lee Burke's or Patricia Cornwell's."
- USA Today on The Limits of Justice

"Startling complex and refreshingly sophisticated...just the right combination of urbanity and hard-boiled sleuthing."
- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Justice at Risk

"Politically pungent, exactly observed, and conceding little comfort, Wilson is heir to the shockingly unsentimental vision of Patricia Highsmith."
- Out on Simple Justice

"A tightly paced page turner...a must read for all serious mystery fans."
- Booklist (starred review) on Revision of Justice

"Wilson writes with such skill, pluck, and conviction that it becomes both suspenseful and moving."
- Washington Post on Simple Justice
