San Francisco homicide detective Jane Candiotti never shies away from the risks of the job. Now she’s finally ready to gamble on her personal life, inviting her partner and boyfriend Kenny Marks to move in. But just when domestic bliss settles in, Skip Lacey, an ex-cop turned junkie, is found brutally murdered, his eyes gouged out with a spoon. He is the first—but he won’t be the last.

Because after fifteen years on the inside maximum security, a bloodthirsty ex-con is finally free to exact his revenge on the city’s peacekeepers who’d kept him behind bars. One by one the mutilated bodies pile up, while the SFPD scrambles to unmask the killer who is decimating their ranks. For Jane and Kenny, the only thing worse than watching their friends and colleagues fall is the knowledge that, unless they can stop this unrelenting madman in time, any day could be their last.

Mehr über den Autor

Krimi-Bestsellerautor Clyde Phillips, ehemaliger Produzent der mit einem Emmy nominierten Showtime-Serie »Dexter«, ist derzeit als Produzent der viel gepriesenen Fernsehserie »Nurse Jackie« tätig. Außerdem hat er die Fernsehserien »Parker Lewis - Der Coole von der Schule«, »Susan« und »Get Real - Von Mann zu Mann« geschaffen. Er ist Autor der Jane-Candiotti-Romane »Fall From Grace«, »Blindsided« und »Sacrifice«.

Ursprünglich aus Boston, studierte er an der University of California, Los Angeles, und lebt heute mit seiner Frau Jane in Connecticut und auf Martha's Vineyard. Sie haben eine Tochter.



Homicide inspector Jane Candiotti's personal life is taking a turn for the better: still single and nearing 40, she's about to set up housekeeping with her partner on the force, Kenny Marks. Her future at the San Francisco Police Department is looking good too, until Skip Lacey, a former cop who's fallen on hard times, turns up dead in a railway yard, his eyes brutally gouged out. The killer's got a big score to settle, as well as a talent for turning up in the strangest places, like the funeral of Jane's father. He also has a sharpshooter's eye and a deadly aim: bent on revenge for a 15-year-old miscarriage of justice, he picks off six more cops, all in Jane's precinct.

In this second outing after the Hitchcockian Fall from Grace, which also starred Candiotti and Marks, Phillips telegraphs the killer's identity early on, but that doesn't keep the suspense from mounting. This gripping police procedural has a wallop of a denouement that will come as a surprise to most readers. The action is well paced, the characters sympathetically drawn, and the love story adds a nice touch without sinking into sentimentality. --Jane Adams

1.0 von 5 Sternen disgruntled reader who wants his money back 13. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Ugh - this guy must be paying people to write good reviews - otherwise they wouldn't be so eager to post their names. This was terrible. As an avid reader, I can tell you - save your money and buy a book by someone who can write. Unless one-dimensional characters and ridiculous plots are your thing.

As law enforcement officials, Inspector Jane Andriotti and Kenny Marks risk their lives to serve and protect the public. At times, they may perform heroic acts, but like most police officers, the couple recognizes they are just performing their jobs as members of a unique club linked by the danger of their occupation. However, the relationship between Jane and Kenny goes way beyond that of comrades in arms They are lovers and the day they move in together, the brass assigns them to investigate the brutal murder of a former cop turned druggie.

The killer Jacques Carpentier served fifteen years of hard time. Back on the street, Jacques has a personal agenda to complete. Jacques plans vengeance on specific members of the SFPD. By the third murder, the police conclude a serial killer has targeted them for termination. Neither Jane, in charge of the case, nor Kenny has any idea who the perpetrator is or why he is killing cops and former cops. Though they jeopardize their lives doing their job, Jane and Kenny know they must stop the culprit before another person is found dead.

The taut story line with its switching locations and superb characterizations are so well written, it will blind-side the sub-genre by turning it into a new direction. The story line is fast-paced while Mr. Phillips' magically switches locales in an effortlessly manner that actually propels the plot forward. However, it is the humanization of the characters, who grow as they learn from their errors, that turns this thriller into a mega-chiller. Readers of BLINDSIDED will be obsessed to read Clyde Phillips' previous novels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Ultimate E-ticket of mysteries! 6. April 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Author Clyde Phillips once again takes his readers on a wild, action packed adventure in his new novel, BLINDSIDED. Revisiting Inspector Jane Candiotti (the fiesty memorable central character from his first novel, FALL FROM GRACE), Phillips picks up where his former story concluded without missing a beat. In fast-paced, snappy chapters, Phillips propels his readers along at a dizzying rate that will leave them breathless and ready for more. With his in-depth experience as a television producer (He's behind the series "Suddenly Susan," and most recently the new Fox TV hit "Get Real"), Phillips knows the importance of grabbing an audience's attention and never letting go until the last emotion-twisting end. BLINDSIDED is the ultimate E-ticket of mysteries. This reviewer, for one, can't wait for the next installment of Jane Candriotti's life story. Write faster, Clyde!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Phillips Puts the Thrill Back in the Thriller! 6. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Thank god I had this book along with me on what turned out to be the longest flight I've ever been on -- I couldn't have put Blindsided down if I wanted to. Jane Candiotti and Kenny Marks, detectives, lovers, and partners against crime, are two of the best drawn characters in the world of mysteries. Together they must sort out the drama not only in their relationship, but in a frightening series of murders that'll keep your heart pumping, page after page. Beautifully written, with enough plot twists to turn you upside-down, Blindsided is a classic -- shrewd, satisfying, brilliant. Bravo Clyde Phillips.

5.0 von 5 Sternen FIVE STAR STORYTELLING 12. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
All the elements are there: an endless twisting and turning try-to-predict-what-happens-next-and-be-continually amazed & surprised plot; real, flesh and blood characters who behave like human beings, not movie star heroes; clever, funny, intelligent dialogue; an enigmatic villain; and just enough emotion to keep all the elements together. Mr. Phillips is an all-pro, master story-teller. If you're looking for a night or weekend (the book reads quickly and easily) of knuckle-clenching, page-turning entertainment, read Blindsided.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blindsided 13. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I found this book fasinating and enjoyed it even more than the first of the series. The relationship between the two main characters has depth and their interplay adds a nice counter foil to the gritty reality of their search for the killer.
It is a tour of San Francisco, murder and life, with a touch of humor. This book is a good read. Put it in your beach or travel bag.

5.0 von 5 Sternen On the edge of my chair 13. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Clyde Phillips treats his readers to another brilliant episode of Jane and Kenny in SF, this time teetering at the top of the Transamerica Tower. Plan on reading this thriller in one seating -- it's impossible to put down. This summer, you won't need to go any further than BLINDSIDED for a warm summer romance and a white-knuckle roller coaster ride. Highly recommended.

Von T.M.
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Blindsided moves at such a break-neck pace you can't help but be drawn into the lives of San Francisco detectives Jane Candiotti and Kenny Marks. Phillips has wonderfully crafted characters you'll care about and an ending that will keep you riveted. Suspenseful. Intelligent. Poignant. Phillips doesn't leave an emotion unturned. A true sit down, cover-to-cover read.
