Fiona Brand is beginning a thrilling new trilogy with her book Double Vision. Double Vision takes readers deep into the inner workings of a Columbian Cartel. Headed by Alex Lopez, the cartel has slowly, but steadily infiltrated the honest business of Cesar Morell, and bankrupted those businesses. Morell has no choice but to look to any and all sources to save not only his businesses, but the lavish lifestyle that he and his wife Ester, and their daughter Rina are accustomed to.

Esther with her photographic memory, and her background in international banking soon suspects that there is more to Cesarís new business associates than what appears on the surface. Her suspicions soon become apparent to Alex, and he makes the moves he needs to permanently silence her, and tie not only Cesar but also Rina to him for a lifetime, and quite possibly beyond.

Itís now about twenty years later and Rina and Alex have been married for two years. Rina who was blinded in an accident when Esther was trying to run away with her believes that she never met Alex before their courtship and subsequent marriage. Itís not until some ďaccidentsĒ around the house that her vision and memory start returning. Rina, being the intelligent person that she is soon realizes that her life and the lives of several people surrounding her depend on Alex believing she is still blind.

As Ms. Brand continues the story the danger keeps increasing in intensity. The suspense is well written, but there is a major cliff hangar, and I felt deprived that not one story line was completed to my satisfaction. With that thought in mind if I were reading for total pleasure and not for review I would have preferred to save Double Vision, and read it in February when this exciting trilogy concludes.
