4.0 out of 5 stars Kept me on the edge of my seat... 21 October 2015
By QUEERcentric Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Reviewed by Kiersten Jane for QUEERcentric Books

Blind Redemption, by Denise Dearth, co-conceived by Amy Gillen, is a thrilling take on the private investigator novel. It is the first, in hopefully a long line of Jackie Vaughn P.I. books.

Jackie Vaughn is a private investigator who has been through some recent trauma and has fallen on hard times. Not only is her business failing, she is suffering from PTSD after losing her partner. As a result, she is self-medicating by popping pills and drinking alcohol, a combination that is more likely to contribute to the dysfunction in her life than solve any of her problems.

Relying on intuition and psychic visions, Jackie isn’t your typical private investigator. But as her abilities are put to the test in her latest case, will she be able to work past her substance abuse issues, or will they finally catch up with her?

Charles Freder, a prestigious University Chancellor, hires Jackie to look for his wife, Annette, who went missing during their trip to China. Little does Jackie know that she is being set up; Charles is an abusive husband and he knows what happened to Annette, and it’s up to Jackie to figure out his true intentions before it’s too late.

As Jackie follows Annette’s trail through the winding Chinese streets, she begins to run out of her prescription medications and experiences symptoms of withdrawal. Her debts also start to catch up with her.

If she didn’t have enough to worry about, a mysterious and dangerous man has suddenly taken an interest in Jackie’s case just as she makes a big break.

Fearing the worst, Charles tries to call off the investigation, hoping to stop Jackie before she stumbles upon incriminating evidence. However, Jackie is invested at this point, and her gut keeps propelling her forward, closer and closer to the truth.

As fate moves them towards an inevitable confrontation, will more than one character get a chance at redemption?

Overall, Blind Redemption had an interesting premise and an exciting plot. The twists and turns were unpredictable and kept me on the edge of my seat. I found Jackie’s character very compelling, and her struggles with trauma and substance abuse inspiring.

Blind Redemption was a portrait of industrialized China, and the resulting social, economic, and environmental problems that have followed such a big boom. Dearth and Gillen explore themes of corruption, pollution, human trafficking, sweat shop exploitation, status of women, and petty crime—not to mention serious felonies.

My main critique is that Dearth and Gillen took physical description for granted, leaving a lot up to the imagination. The entire book read like a screenplay for a movie or TV show rather than a novel, making it very engaging in terms of the type and speed of action, but somewhat lacking in evocative imagery.

That aside, I enjoyed the tale very much. I look forward to further Jackie Vaughn P.I. thrillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent paranormal detective story 28 October 2015
By Alina Popescu - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am a sucker for a good detective story, and a touch of paranormal is just what it needs to make it even better. Blind Redemption mixes all that in a story that keeps you on edge, wondering if Jackie Vaughn will be able to catch the bad guys using her detective skills and psychic abilities. Who’s done it is not part of the mystery, at least not for the reader. It’s pretty obvious from the start. The circumstances, the reach of the bad guys, and whether Jackie will save the abductee, that will keep your mind going on and on as you read.
Jackie is a very real and colorful character. She self-medicates with booze and pills to be able to deal with her loss. Her poor choices in dealing with grief are the reason why she’s sorely misjudged and underestimated by her employer, none other than the bad guy. Those who decide to hire her think she’s nothing more than a lunatic who believes she’s tapping into the supernatural world, too drunk and high to really do any damage.
Jackie is quick to disappoint them by managing to get out of impossibly threatening situation and find her way through the maze of clues the bad guys have left behind. It takes more than a fuzzy mind to dull her investigative instincts or her psychic touch. Will that be enough for her to succeed though? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
