Dark Eye. Just for entertainment. A cross between Silence of the Lambs and Rainman. Darcy, a 25-year-old autistic savant, assists burned out and depressed police detective Susan Pulaski with solving a string of violent murders and helps catch the serial killer. During the investigation Susan is forced to see the crimes from Darcy’s unique perspective which proves to be the key to solving them. Bernhardt does a good job describing Darcy and his perspective which was interesting and at time quite humorous. The setting is Las Vegas so it has a very CSI feel. Bernhardt continues with these characters in Strip Tease where Darcy and Pulaski team up again to solve another murder spree. Darcy’s insight and perspective will amaze you. However, the violence described is very graphic so beware; this is not a cozy read.
