Book Review - Blind Traveler's Blues

"Blind Traveler's Blues" by Robert P. Bennett (Echelon Press, 2011), is a timely novel. Set in the year 2021, it shows us a scarily believable world in which earthquakes rule our everyday lives and genetic engineering is reaping its sadly foreseeable consequences.

That in itself makes it an important read for today's audiences. Fortunately, the plot and the characters make it an enjoyable read too, so there's no excuse for passing this book without popping it into your e-book basket.

If you haven't read the first book in the series, "Blind Traveler Down A Dark River", now is the time to meet the blind protagonist, Douglas Abledan, who has the uncanny if unfortunate knack for bumping into murder mysteries.

While the murder is no mystery for the reader, Mr. Abledan has to rely on his remaining four senses to discover the identity of the killer before he himself becomes the next victim... or faces being arrested for the crime.

Read the book. You too will love navigating blind through the world of the future, your sonic cane and nose your only guides through the shaky streets of Chicago.

Both Abledan books are well written page turners. Get both of them - you won't regret it!
