"The thrilling new Mallory novel from the New York Times-bestselling author and one of the most acclaimed crime writers in America. The nun was dead. Her body lay on the lawn outside Gracie Mansion, the home of New York City's mayor, and it wasn't alone. There were four of them altogether. They'd been killed at different times, in different places, and dumped there. There should have been five--but the boy was missing. Jonah Quill, blind since birth, sat in a car driven by a killer and wondered where they were going. Though he was blind, Jonah saw more than most people did. It was his secret, and he was counting on that to save his life. Detective Kathy Mallory was counting on herself to save his life. It took her a while to realize that the missing-person case she was pursuing was so intimately connected to the massacre on the mayor's lawn. But there was something about the boy she was searching for that reminded her of herself, all those years ago, when she was an orphan adrift in a world over which she had little control and determined never to let that happen again. She would find him--she just hoped it'd be in time"--… (més)

This was okay/pretty good. Always some interesting elements in these stories, and the background characters are slowly gaining some, well, character.

I read the Large Print copy (all my library had) and never again!? So many errors. Wrong words, grammar, who is in charge of these editions? I'm so happy I'm not dependent on the larger fonts... and honestly, that's when I'll make the transition to ebooks.

I you like the series, read it. If you've not read the series? Don't start with this one. ( )

Blind Sight by Carol O’Connell is a 2016 Headline publication.

‘Mallory the Machine’ might be the most interesting female protagonist in crime fiction.

This twelfth installment in the Kathy Mallory series showcases Mallory’s .., er… unique personality as she plows through a grisly crime scene in which several bodies have been dumped at the mayor’s residence, with their hearts removed. To make matters even more perplexing, a nun with a very colorful past and her blind nephew disappear, possible kidnap victims, who could be in the clutches of cold blooded killer.
This dark crime story, told with O’Connell’s razor sharp dark humor, compliments Malloy’s odd investigative techniques as a lurid and political crime story unfolds. There is certainly a human element to the story with a young blind boy at risk, and the race against time is palpable.

I felt as though Mallory was particularly harsh in this installment, toying with people for fun, exhibiting a level of rudeness that went beyond her usual impatience and stoicism. New readers of this series may not know what to make of her, so reading this one as a stand alone might not be the best idea.
I liked the realism in portraying a blind person, which did not fall back on stereotypes, and it was interesting following Jonah’s thoughts as he duels it out with his captor, making him the hero of the story.
The ironies are thick, but the plot was not as tight as in previous installments and even got a little sloppy on occasion, but everything did manage to fit together by the conclusion of the book.
I enjoyed catching up with Mallory, after what has seemed like a pretty long pause between releases, but this is not the best representation of this series. Don’t get me wrong, this is a solid enough story, it’s just not up the usual standards I have come to expect from this series.

So, if you are thinking of trying this novel without having read at least a couple of the previous chapters in the series, I would suggest waiting until you can catch up a bit before tackling this one. If you are following the series or at least familiar enough with it to understand the characterizations and so forth, then, you will not want to pass up the chance to see what Mallory is up to and what kind of mood she mind be in this time around.
Overall -3.5 stars ( )

I have loved Carol O'Connell's books since the first "Mallory's Oracle" back in the '90's. I kept up for awhile but then fell behind as my books started to increase quickly. Thank goodness, I do have all her books in my library so I intend to catch up! That said, this book, Blindsight, is fine as a stand alone as well. Mallory is a blunt, do-it-her way genius with no social skills. But, can she catch the bad guys and make them wish they had stayed good! This book starts off with the disappearance of a nun and a young blind boy. Then, four bodies turn up on the lawn of Gracie Mansion and off we go....Exciting and fast moving, if you like thrillers, you'll love Mallory! ( )

This had many twists and turns that had me guessing the whole story. I kept wondering if the young boy was going to live or die. This is the first book I have read in this series but I hope to read more of them. I received this book from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion. ( )
