After stints as a manual laborer, dishwasher, bartender, restaurant manager, commercial photographer, magazine editor, and public relations executive, Sherer decided life should imitate art and became a novelist. He is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and the Authors Guild.

Unterhaltsamer Krimi, allerdings hat sich mir der Spannungsbogen zu langsam aufgebaut und ich habe in der Mitte einige Kapitel übersprungen. Der Versuch, Historie, Geheimdienststory und schicksalsbeladene Einzelgeschichten zu verbinden, war für meinen Geschmack zeitweise zu konstruiert - trotzdem war der "Showdown" lesenswert und das Buch alles in allem keine verlorene Zeit.

Die Geschichte hat nach nach meinem Geschmack etwas Langwierig angefangen. Es lohnt sich aber durchzuhalten. Die Geschichte entwickelt sich danach sehr rasant. Der Kauf hat sich gelohnt.

Der Autor war mir bisher kein Begriff, aber nun werde ich sicher noch weitere Romane austesten. Die Spannung wird gut gehalten und die Story ist halbwegs glaubwürdig.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thriller with bite! 23. Oktober 2012
Von Brenda Telford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Blake Sanders felt like he had lost everything...twelve months ago, his only son Cole had committed suicide, and he blamed himself. He should have been able to help him, and couldn't work out why he hadn't seen the signs. After he lost his job in a shocking scandal he was innocent of, but couldn't prove, he lost his beautiful wife Molly to divorce... So when he came across a woman threatening to jump from a bridge, while he was driving to his night time job, he was determined to save her...

Later, as he did his newspaper delivery round through the streets of Seattle, he looked forward to catching up with Midge, his last customer on the run. Midge, an elderly lady he had struck up an odd friendship with, was a kind gentle soul, who spent her daylight hours volunteering at the nearby Joyance House, near the church and rectory. To his disappointment, Midge's house was in darkness, so he continued on his way.

To Blake's horror, Midge had been brutally murdered in her home, and now the police were after him for her murder. Both Donovan and Hiragawa didn't believe his claims of innocence, and ex-wife Molly's team of lawyers were immediately on his case. On bail, Blake decided he needed to prove his innocence, and so began the incredible race against time, and his life, with a rogue French military intelligence agent, a shadowy murderer and the police all after him.

With the assassination of a key player, the mystery surrounding events which occurred in the 1850's, a recently found journal by Sister Marguerite, which seemed connected to Midge's death, the gorgeous Lieutenant Commander Reyna Chase of Navy Intelligence deeply involved... Councilman Rafe Acasa and his sidekick Dan Whiting....would Blake be able to stop the horrific murders before he himself lost his life? Who could he trust? It seemed he was on his own...

This brilliant thriller is the first in the Blake Sanders series, and I will definitely be reading the next! I could not put this book down, the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat, the absolutely breathtaking scenes had me right there.... Well done Mike Sherer and thank you for my advanced copy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen "In the still of the night, I held you so tight." Song lyrics 4. November 2012
Von michael a. draper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This excellent story opens with enough information to solidly grab the reader's attention. Tension grows through the exquisitely developed plot as we encounter characters who we want to learn more about.

The story opens with a segment in France where a French rouge agent knows it's time to leave the country. He's given a lead on something valuable in Canada so travels there in hope of making a big score.

In Seattle, Blake Sanders was a public affairs official who lost his job and family after a financial scandal. He's haunted by the suicide of his son and subsides by his reserves and delivering newspapers.

Blake's misfortunes seem to have given him more empathy for others. His part in the story opens with him talking a woman from taking her life by jumping from a bridge.

The last stop on his delivery route is to an elderly woman. She seems lonely and he often stops in and has tea with her. Someone murders her and tries to set Blake up to take the blame.

Part of the story involves a historic event in the 1850s where an order of nuns were given land and the mineral rights to the land. What this has to do with present times and how this is tied in to a number of other incidents was very imaginative.

Readers looking for an excellent story and well written literature will be rewarded with reading this edge of seat thriller.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Big And Messy Thriller: An Engaging Lead Struggles With Far Too Many Plot Threads 6. Februar 2013
Von K. Harris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Combining elements of the classic wronged man thriller with the historical quest elements popularized in novels such as "The Da Vinci Code," author Michael Sherer has created a page turner in "Night Blind" that's easy to like, if not always easy to take seriously. If you want a fitfully entertaining journey, there is a lot to recommend Sherer's latest. But as much as I enjoyed the book (and I did), it's disparate plot threads wind over one another with great convenience and little plausibility. At the heart of the story is a typically troubled antihero named Blake Sanders. As a man falsely accused of numerous wrongs, Sanders must prove his innocence as well as divert an international crisis, unravel a century's old mystery, solve several murders, and uncover the political corruption plaguing Seattle's local government. That's a lot to maintain while still holding on to a nightly paper route! I credit Sherer, at least, for making Sanders a character that you want to follow into the darkness no matter how murky the narrative can get.

I can't really attempt to describe the plot of "Night Blind" in any meaningful way that will make much sense. Let's just say that a shadowy historical story surrounding nuns and sailors (possibly involving massive amounts of gold, possibly involving a biological weapon) might be the undoing of Seattle. An elderly friend of Sanders stumbles upon a part of the conspiracy and meets her untimely demise. In an effort to avoid taking the rap for her murder, Sanders start to dig into the mystery. Along the way, he'll be influenced by three women: his ex-wife with whom he shares a tragedy, a lady he rescues from a botched suicide attempt, and a no-nonsense Naval analyst. He must evade a murderer, a rogue French agent, the cops, personal demons involving his son, and the events that destroyed his promising career. Wow! Even writing this review, I'm astounded that "Night Blind" works at all. It tries to juggle way too much and, as a result, loses its way on occasion. One primary example is the suicidal character. She starts out strong, but seemingly has nothing to do after being introduced (aside from coincidentally being in a position to get Sanders some information for his investigation).

And yet, despite its over-ambition, "Night Blind" still succeeds as a rousing adventure. Sherer does a good job with the action pieces, and Sanders is a compelling lead. In the end, the plot is so convoluted that many of the themes or characters introduced get short shrift. And upon the big reveal, I couldn't help but be a little let down by the final revelations. Not for one second did I believe "Night Blind," but I did have fun. I suppose that's enough for a mild recommendation. I would definitely look into other works by Sherer. He's a talented writer that keeps you turning the pages. I just hope next time, the tale he chooses will be a bit more focused. As a character, Sanders is supposed to be affected by ADD (not really developed in any tangible way) and that's a great metaphor for "Night Blind." The book jumps all over the place trying to be everything to everyone, and so loses the impact that it might have had. About 3 1/2 stars for entertainment value. KGHarris, 2/13.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Night Blind 5. Oktober 2012
Von grumpydan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Blake Sanders had a good life but now delivers newspapers and washes dishes. A year earlier his son committed suicide, and was accused of theft at his job. His marriage fell apart and he blamed himself for his son's s death. One evening while delivering the paper, he stops a woman from killing herself. At the same tie, an elderly woman on his route was murdered and all the evidence points to him. Desperate to clear his name, he stumbles upon more than he bargained for. A hunt for hidden treasure and a religious mystery that happened over 150 years earlier brings in not only the US Navy, the FBI but also a rogue French military agent.

Michael W. Sherer has created a likeable character in Blake Sanders. He is a complicated man but the author lets out a little about him as the story develops. We get to learn who he is and what makes him tick and his relationships with other. The story also unfolds, not in a chaotic confusion, but clearly evolving as each piece of the puzzle is connected. As I read each chapter, I wanted to know more about the nun's secret. It all comes to a head and the climax is worthy of the pages before it. This was a very good novel and I look forward to the continuing adventures of Blake Sanders.

2.0 von 5 Sternen You might hate it or you might love it... 5. November 2012
Von Neal Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I believe the big difference is in whether you've read previous entries in the series or not. I havewn't and like others found myself hopelessly lost through most of the book. I've read my share of other books without being familiar with previous ones in the series, but this one really cries for reader familiarity. In this case, I just don't find myself all that interested in the past of the main character and his estranged wife to read earlier books, but as there are those who enthusiasically recommend this, it's probably worth your while to start the series at the beginning and work your way to this one.
