"An original and gripping work, more proof—as if any was needed—that Louise Ure is an exciting new voice in the mystery field.  And its nail-bitting suspense is balanced with a thoughtful, nuanced view of where blame truly begins.  Cadence is an extraordinary character and Ure's ability to capture her world is nothing less than remarkable."—Laura Lippman, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author

“By turns an accomplished procedural, an acute study of a fiercely independent heroine and a nail-biting suspense." —Kirkus

For one woman, the dark is a dangerous place to be, and it’s the one place she cannot escape.

Arizona auto mechanic Cadence Moran is no stranger to darkness. She was blinded in a horrific car accident eight years ago that also took the life of her three-year-old niece. She knows she was only partially to blame, but that doesn't make the loss any easier to bear. She's learned to get by, but there are still painful memories. When she is almost run down by a speeding car on the way home from work, Cadence at first thinks that she is the victim of road rage or a bad driver. But that's not the case. In fact, she is the only witness to the murder of her elderly neighbor, and now the killer believes that she's seen the getaway car.  Louise Ure paints the glare of a Southwestern summer with the brush of a blind woman's darkness in this novel of jeopardy and courage…and the fine line between them—as Cadence fights to stop a killer she can't see.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 12, 2007 – Shamus-winner Ure s deeply compelling and original protagonist falls just short of keeping her intricate second mystery afloat. Cadence Moran, a blind auto mechanic in Tucson, Ariz., has an uncanny ability to pinpoint engine problems by sound. Her skill soon becomes a key element in solving a series of gruesome murders. The tale of how Cadence was blinded is delicately revealed in tiny pieces, satisfying curiosity without slowing development. A complex but credible plot supported by adroit pacing keeps readers guessing through the first two-thirds of the novel, but Ure reveals the killers identities while police are still chasing dead ends, destroying the tension. The clich d, Hollywood-style action scenes at the very end stretch believability to the breaking point. When Ure (Forcing Amaryllis) can develop conclusions that do justice to her meticulously drawn characters and settings, she ll be a force to be reckoned with.
