Blind Search: A Mercy Carr Mystery
Minotaur, 2019 (2019)
Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth
ittle boys like to do their own thing. Most of the time that thing works out. But not when the little boy, Henry, is trudging through snow in a forest in the Green Mountains in Vermont. Did I mention that he is a nine-year-old genius on the autistic spectrum?
ercy Carr, a former Army MP, feels the boy has seen something horrible which he cannot articulate. Her bomb-sniffing dog Elvis is also retired from the Army and helps Mercy to search for lost tourists in the mountains. To get to the storyline, a young woman has been shot through the heart with an arrow! Mercy feels Henry has seen this happen and simply cannot deal with such a horror.
he plot takes hold of you and won't let go. Mercy has her own problems but can't turn away from the fascinating young boy. Nor can the reader. Elvis is worth meeting as is Elvis' doggie friend Susie Bear, who works with Mercy's romantic interest, game warden Troy Warner. Later, Elkhounds join the search. Mercy is a stalwart person who will always do what she determines to be right. I would like to meet her and all the dogs.
his is a Search and Rescue book that at times will take your breath away. The rest of the time, you will be content with the action. Read it. You will like it.
