By Michael Watson VINE VOICE on 31 Aug. 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the first Blake Sanders book in a proposed new series from author, Michael W. Sherer.

As with most of today's crop of heroes, he's a troubled man. He lost his high flying job thanks to an embezzlement set-up, so he is almost penniless and friendless, his son committed suicide for reasons which only become clear at the end of the book and he split from his wife, Molly because of these two traumas. Further, he has a replacement hip and a painful leg! Poor fellow. What more could go wrong?

Lots.

On his paper drop round he finds the mutiliated body of one of his elderly customers and so begins a downward spiral of wrongful accusations, more dead bodies, all of whom are attributed to him and a pursuit by not one but two vengeful killers. Oh dear.

And it all comes down to money, well, tons of hidden gold mined back in the 1850s and let's not forget a possible plague-style vial similarly hidden away amongst the gold.

Blake Sanders is not a man to stand still. He can't really, given the speed at which his pursuers continue to dog his footsteps, taking pot shots whenever but he's not alone. Molly, his ex-wife continues to help him, a failed suicide makes a cameo appearance and then completely disappears and the US Navy Intelligence drop in to lend a hand, though it's all a bit too little too late for Sanders.

He has to work it all out himself, though he does call in a few favours along the way. Never mind one of his pursuers is an French ex-spook, practised in martial arts, Blake with his gammy hip is more than a match, thank goodness or there wouldn't be a follow-on book.

Actually, it's a good read, though it does drag a bit because Blake takes ages to work out what it's all about.

but overall a very good read. I liked the plot and loved the lead character. I loved how his past gradually revealed itself throughout the book. I found that sometimes the plot seemed a little too convenient, almost like it wasn't worth the effort so something, anything was whipped up quickly which meant the plot seemed "incredible" at times.

Then there was an important character who just seemed to vanish towards the end. No tie-up, closure.....or maybe that's left open for a further book?

Regardless of my criticism, I still really enjoyed the read.

OK, I enjoy a good crime thriller but do like them to be plausible; this one is not.
The hero outwits the hardened criminals and police in trying to prove his innocence. And manages to better them in fights and car chases.
Also, there are three parallel stories running which confused me a little. One story (potential suicide) peters out without finalising.
Lastly, this hero makes accurate assumptions about tracing the mystery object, without any real hard proof or logic. It's a bit of a cop out as the author does not have to explain how those assumptions are reached!
Still it kept me busy for a few evenings.

Blake Sanders is going through a hard time after a tragic event that led not only to the breakup of his marriage and life as he knew it, but also ruined his future career chances. And now another death - of which he is the main suspect - once again spirals his life out of control and before long he is running from local cops and US as well as foreign agents.

There are lots of people and events to keep track of on the journey. It might be over the top and have a few too many turns, but I enjoyed the exciting and fast paced story with interesting characters and a somewhat unlikely hero - and would be happy to read any future instalment in the series

I paid one pound for this Kindle book (via an Amazon offer). I'd say that the enjoyment I got from reading this was worth a lot more than that. I've not previously read any books by Mr Sherer and so was going in as 'blind' as the book's protagonist. However, the chance was worth it and I found myself looking forward to snatched moments, when I could go back to the story (I don't have a lot of spare time for reading).
If you can get over the rather unnecessary 'floweriness' of prose, in the first few pages, the book soon settles down into a fairly rollicking pace and, although a little convoluted at times, for my feeble brain, it presented a novel and well thought out plot, underpinned by what appears to be some thorough research.
I'd give it five stars but (and without spoiling anything) I felt that it slightly ran out of steam at the end. Don't let that put you off, though - it's still worth investing the 700 minutes (or whatever it was the Kindle told me) of your life in!

Imaginative, exciting story well told although the wording at the beginning nearly put me off entirely - I thought the author had swallowed a dictionary & was showing off. I was very glad however that I persevered as it became very exciting & fast paced.

By D. Elliott TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Dec. 2012
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The storyline of `Night Blind' ranges between buried secrets from the mid 19th century to present day corruption with murders flowing from both. It is a well constructed tense thriller which commences with numerous threads simultaneously, and with some characters quickly exposed but others left to varying degrees of unknown. Author Michael W Sherer skilfully brings threads together and his introductions and commentaries on characters defines their nature and position within the narrative. Everything is revealed where it should be - at a dramatic denouement.

The main protagonist, Blake Sanders, has suffered more than his fair share of life's troubles and he is set up to face worse. The suspense and roller-coaster action of `Night Blind' combines Blake's search for killers to prove his own innocence and to right wrongs from a previous stage in his life with a quest to solve a mystery relating to lost riches. At the same time there is an urgent need to locate suspect deadly biological material, and the plot embraces police, foreign agents, naval intelligence etc. - but it is not really a detective novel - it is quite unique. As expected with fiction there is reliance on coincidences but all puzzle pieces are made to fit in a satisfactory manner.

The author writes in an evocative style with rich language yet sometimes his wordplay borders on pretentious - examples in the first few pages are `eczamatous' and `ferruginous'. He deals sensitively with many issues including suicide, divorce and embezzlement, and readers will soon empathise with Blake as he himself empathises with other characters and as he attempts to right wrongs. Perhaps it is somewhat surprising how much back-story is incorporated, but `Night Blind' is one of a series of Blake novels. Even so the author manages to achieve an excellent stand alone story that is compelling and gripping - and other Blake novels in the series are to be welcomed.
