New Books BLIND VENGEANCE by Barry Hoffman

Barry Hoffman returns with his fifth book in the critically acclaimed EYES series.
Teenager Renee LeShay has been kidnapped by Norman Flowers, an unhinged victim of homicide detective Lamar Briggs, who thinks he has abducted Briggs’s daughter Alexis. Shara Farris, a bounty hunter and Renee’s legal guardian, has to unmask and locate the abductor before he tires of torturing Renee and kills her. Renee, aware she is not the intended victim, assumes Alexis’s identity and engages in a battle of wills with her kidnapper.
A taut tale of full of twists and turns with Renee’s sanity and life in the balance.
From Barry Hoffmann
Blind Vengeance is the 5th book in the “Eyes” series. Blind Rage will be the sixth and final book in the series. My feeling is for a series to be successful the main character must grow with each book. When I’ve squeezed all there is from a character the series should end.  Shara Farris went from serial killer to bounty hunter/private investigator. Blind Vengeance fleshes out her character while another recent series regular becomes more important (the focus of the last book is more on her). The dynamic between the two and the murder they must solve is what will attract followers of the series.
