An expert marksman and trained in four martial arts techniques, she was the star member of an elite team charged with tracking Germany's most dangerous criminals. But when a disastrous mission ended in irreversible blindness, Jenny was forced to abandon her dangerous career. Five years later, she's still haunted by her failure when she is called upon to investigate the brutal murder of a prison psychologist. Now she must test the new skills that she's acquired in her world of darkness — but are they enough to battle a ruthless killer whose intelligence and daring match her own?

A rare and magnificent book." — Ken Bruen, author of The Guards and The Killing of the Tinkers, winner of The Shamus Award and Edgar Allan Poe Award finalist "Better than Bond." — Die Zeit “Gripping and action-packed. A tough thriller with a fascinating heroine. You won't be able to put this down.” — Krimi “For everyone who loves The Silence of the Lambs.

John Bramblitt makes his living as a visual artist. His works have been sold in over twenty different countries, and he’s received three Presidential Service awards for the art workshops he teaches. He’s painted portraits of skateboarder Tony Hawk and blues legend Pops Carter. He’s given talks about his art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and there has even been a documentary made about him. And . . . he’s blind. When Bramblitt was declared legally blind ten years ago due to complications with epilepsy, his hopes of becoming a creative writing teacher were shattered and he sunk into a deep depression. He felt disconnected from family and friends, alienated and alone. But then something amazing happened--he discovered painting. He learned to distinguish between different colored paints by feeling their textures with his fingers. He taught himself how to paint using raised lines to help him find his way around the canvas, and through something called haptic visualization, which enables him to "see" his subjects through touch. He now paints amazingly lifelike portraits of people he's never seen--including his wife and son. Shouting in the Dark is the story of Bramblitt's life, his journey navigating through this new territory of blindness, and how he ultimately rekindles his joy, passion, and relationships through art.
