Sleep With The Lights on by Maggie Shayne




Through the eyes of a killer… 

Rachel de Luca has found incredible success writing self-help books. But her own blindness and the fact that her troubled brother has gone missing have convinced her that positive thinking is nothing but bull.
Her cynicism wavers when a cornea transplant restores her sight. The new eyes seem to give her new life, until they prove too good to be true and she starts seeing terrifying visions of brutal murders—crimes she soon learns are all too real.

Detective Mason Brown's own brother recently died, leaving behind a horrific secret. In atonement, Mason donated his brother's organs, though he's kept the fact quiet. Now he wants to help Rachel find her brother, but when he discovers the shocking connection between her visions and his own brother, he suddenly has to do everything in his power to save her from a predator who is somehow still hunting from beyond the grave.
 
Maggie Shayne's Sleep With the Lights On is psychological thriller with a heroine you cannot help but love, a hero that immediate grows on you and you can not wait to see what happens next. She leaves you in suspense throught out the entire book and you will hate to put the book down

Rachel de Luca is one of the best heroines I've met in a long time. She is one of those no holds barred ladies who says what's on her mind no matter what. A beautiful,smart, independent, strong female who isn't afraid to show that she is boss lady.
Mason Brown is a hard nose cop, with a damaged soul. The hoops that Maggie puts him through are enough to break anyone, but he just rolls with the punches and keeps on kicking.

The plot of Sleep with the Lights on is brilliant just think about it, evil being transferred to people due to receiving a donated organ is one that says " you must read me"! You can't help but be sucked in by the 'what ifs'   It is a widespread case of evil, through the means of infection that no one has ever considered before, which makes this even more disturbing. Add in the fact that one person can donate different parts of the body to up to 40 people makes this a Series that has the potential to be a long one.

I have been a huge fan of Maggie Shayne fan for quiet a few years, and this Series is different from what she usually writes but she still reels you in with an AWESOME story line. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series. Oh yeah just to warn you, you will sleep with the lights on for a few days.
