Winter Wind Review

Former LAPD homicide detective Lee Jordan can't see, speak or hear...
But he will find you, one way or another.

And with a killer at large, and people disappearing from his city, Lee must must unravel his most baffling case yet...
Before the killer strikes again.


FROM THE BACK COVER

Five years ago, Lee Jordan was nearly killed on the job. Now blind, deaf and mute, he’s recovered enough to live a routine but silent life.

However, now, LAPD needs him back...

When the cases of many missing persons are tied together with the same M.O., this remarkable deaf and blind ex-cop is called in to help locate people who seemingly walked away from their everyday lives. But did they? When one of them surfaces, the forensic evidence makes it clear that this man did not stay gone as willingly as he disappeared.

Lee's only assets are his guide dog, fourteen years of experience as a homicide detective—and an intriguing American Sign Language translator named Rachel.

Just as Lee begins to discover something remarkable about himself, he must engage in a battle of wits with a murderer he can't see or hear. With no weapons but his own mind—and a guide dog with a heart of gold—he sets off alone in Los Angeles to investigate the disappearances.

It’s only a matter of time before more people may die under nefarious circumstances. And the manner of death could put the entire city at risk from…something even more dangerous.

Lee Jordan knows there is more to fighting crime than meets the eye, or ear, or voice. But will he survive his courageous solo pursuit of a twisted killer on the mean streets of L.A.? And can he really stop a madman by himself?
