On My Radar: Paula Munier's Blind Search

One of the best books I read last year was Paula Munier's debut mystery, A Borrowing of Bones. I loved the juxtaposition of the two couples: one, a game warden and his search and rescue dog (a couple of softies), and the other a troubled former soldier and her dog, a retired war dog with canine PTSD. Characters, story, and setting were all right up my alley, so when I found out that the next Mercy & Elvis mystery will be released in November, I smiled so hard I almost split my face.

Let's find out more about Blind Search, shall we?

Available November 5, 2019!
Synopsis: "It’s October, hunting season in the Green Mountains―and the Vermont wilderness has never been more beautiful or more dangerous. Especially for nine-year-old Henry, who’s lost in the woods. Again. Only this time he sees something terrible. When a young woman is found shot through the heart with a fatal arrow, Mercy thinks that something is murder. But Henry, a math genius whose autism often silences him when he should speak up most, is not talking.

Now there’s a murderer hiding among the hunters in the forest―and Mercy and Elvis must team up with their crime-solving friends, game warden Troy Warner and search-and-rescue dog Susie Bear, to find the killer―before the killer finds Henry. When an early-season blizzard hits the mountains, cutting them off from the rest of the world, the race is on to solve the crime, apprehend the murderer, and keep the boy safe until the snowplows get through.

Inspired by the true search-and-rescue case of an autistic boy who got lost in the Vermont wilderness, Paula Munier's mystery is a compelling roller-coaster ride through the worst of winter―and human nature.

Blind Search sounds like such a good read, doesn't it? I can't wait to get my hands on it, and I hope you've added it to your pre-orders/wishlists!


  1. I can see why this one appeals to you, Cathy. The setting is interesting to me, and the premise sounds suspenseful. I'll definitely be interested in what you think of this one.

    1. I'm looking forward to reading it and letting everyone know!

  2. Children in peril?May not be my favorite scenario, especially now when migrant children are so upset because their parents are detained and they don't know when they'll see them again.
    And when I question whether millions of people will response out of good conscience and humanity.

    1. We need to surround each detention facility and have a good old-fashioned sit-in, and refuse to move until these places are abolished. (I'd really like to say "razed to the ground and the ground sown with salt.")


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
