The premise upon which this book is based is that a blind woman, by touching the hand of a corpse, can somehow connect with that deceased person's last 18 seconds of thought before death. It's a far-out concept, I grant, but if you accept the idea as a reader, you get plunged into a very interesting, creepy and dangerous book. This is a work with a real villain, a sociopath would be a good way to describe him. There are murders both recent and from the past, and two tracks of the plot which eventually come together, and an unlikely hero is found. It's a frightening story, but one that will kep you turning the pages far into the night.
