Review by: Randy Johnson on March 13, 2012 :
I liked this one enough to purchase the first one. The idea of a self-sufficient struck home with me with my own issues. That he was able to investigate the death of a woman just met that he liked and had no chance for anything more with her I was enthralled with. That he goes about solving things and stopping something worse I loved.

I look forward to another in the Blind Traveler series.

Review by: Polly Iyer on Jan. 10, 2012 :
Robert P. Bennett has given us an interesting, persistent amateur sleuth in his Blind Traveler series. What I liked most about this book, beside Mr. Bennett's superb research, was the determination of the character to find answers to the death of a woman he met on a plane, shared dinner with, and with whom he felt a greater relationship could develop. Never once did the character lapse into self-pity for his sightless world. Instead, he forged ahead where seeing men would fear to go, using his other senses. I felt the motivation of the antagonist could have been more fleshed out, but all in all, a good read, and I learned a thing or two--something every book should offer.

2021. Corn crops are failing through some plight or fungus that has engulfed all the crops in Mexico and threatening to move into the United States. Earthquakes have become more prevalent and Chicago has been hit. When Douglas Abledan heads for a vacation in Chicago little did he know that this would not be a relaxing one.

When they discovered she had been murdered , they now had a search on their hands. When Douglas starts his own investigation it soon puts him in the hot seat of being the main suspect. With two more murders happening can he prove that he is
innocent.

This was a very enjoyable mystery to read. All though one knew who was doing the killing it was how or when would they finally discover them before they convicted the wrong man. The characters were well written and very easy to become connected with. It definitely is a page turner as the action just keeps getting better. It is a cleanly written book with no coarse language and with only hints at sexual activity. That makes for a big plus with me. Even though it is in the future, it is not one that is outlandish in regards to futuristic happenings. It is written in such a way that it could be in the present. If you enjoy a good mystery/suspense with plenty of twists and turns, then you will enjoy “Blind Travelers Blues”.
