Walters and his team are working on two cases:
one involving the theft of some rare emeralds,
the other an apparent homicide whose victim is
an old retainer left in charge of guarding the emeralds.
Surprisingly, there are clues that seem to link
the two cases, if only Walters and the police
can put them all together. That’s
because the culprits have been methodical in
covering their tracks so that all incriminating
evidence points to the wrong target.
Every thief and fence in the little town would
like to get his hands on that necklace. Some
would stop at nothing, even murder. Despite a
tamperproof security system, the necklace is mysteriously stolen and
the butler, the only eye witness to the crime, is shot and left for dead
during the break-in. There are no clues and the police chief is left
baffled, perplexed, and about to lose his credibility. A spate of similar
jewel thefts in the town adds to his frustration.
Step by step, clue-by-clue, the shocks and twists
of the case leave everyone perturbed and a tidy
answer seems impossible. The solution, however
lies in what is not visible – the
blind spot. By careful and shrewd extortion of
information from their shady contacts and informers, they masterfully
expose and protect secrets. The big challenge
is to find the real villain who is revealed at the very end.
Expatriates from India will find Blind Spot point
out places and things familiar to many – an enjoyable and interesting
story. Here's hoping Braun and Rebeiro will join
forces again in a future book.
