The internationally-acclaimed New Zealand crime writer Paul Cleave has published his 10th novel. Joshua is convinced there is a family curse. It has taken loved ones from him, it has robbed him of his eyesight and is the reason why his father is killed while investigating the homicide of a young woman. Joshua is handed an opportunity he can’t refuse: an operation that will allow him to see the world through his father’s eyes. As Joshua navigates a world of sight, he gets glimpses of what these eyes might have witnessed in their previous life. What exactly was his dad up to in his role as a police officer? There are consequences to the secret life his father was living, and these consequences come in the form of a man hell-bent on killing. Consequences that bring this man closer and closer to Joshua, who soon discovers a world darker than the one he has emerged from.
