Sleep with the Lights On by Maggie Shayne

Sleep with the Lights On by Maggie Shayne

Talk about an awesome first meeting!  Rachel de Luca, famous self-help author, isn’t paying attention and walks off the curb and gets hit by Detective Mason Brown’s car.  Naturally he feels awful, especially when he realizes he just creamed a blind woman.  Oops.  She furious not just because she got hit, but because the Binghampton, NY police don’t seem to be taking her brother’s disappearance seriously. 

When Mason’s brother commits suicide right in front of him, Mason is understandably stunned.  More so when he reads his brother’s suicide note and realizes that he has kidnapped and murdered 14 men.  Mason covers up the evidence, not wanting to put his brother’s sons and wife through the ordeal of knowing their father/ husband was the serial killer dubbed The Wraith.  To feel better about his brother’s death and crimes Mason convinces his brother’s widow to donate his organs.  And Mason knows just the woman to receive corneal tissue.

Days later Rachel is sighted and seeing the world for the first time in 20 years.  She is overwhelmed by both her new vision and the visions that are interrupting her life.  She sees men being murdered in vivid detail.  The Wraith, has struck again and Rachel knows details that the police don’t even know, and Mason knows that The Wraith is dead and shouldn’t be killing anyone anymore…
