ABOUT Kathy DiSanto

Kathy DiSanto
I am a novelist. Also an infrequent poet. Most days, I would rather write than eat. I got my feet wet penning romances for Bantam Loveswept back in 1997. I published two books with them—one of which, FOR LOVE OR MONEY, won a 1997 Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice Award—then life got More...



Waking up is the pits when you come to in a hospital with a broken arm, a colorful assortment of abrasions and contusions, and a face swathed in bandages. It’s even worse if you can’t remember what hit you.

The bad and the ugly are crime reporter Amanda “A.J.” Gregson’s business. But learning she had a ringside seat for an explosion that killed two agents of the Continental Intelligence and Investigative Service (CIIS), incinerated an entire block of warehouses, and did so much damage to her eyes they had to be surgically removed? Well, that gives the darker side of life a whole new meaning.

Haunted by elusive nightmares, A.J. waits for her transplant and struggles to remember the events leading up to the fateful night of September 4, 2075. Weeks crawl by without a glimmer, before memory floods back the night before surgery, every brutal detail crystal clear.

The explosion had been the work of the Ferrymen.

"The Ferrymen. My not-so-magnificent obsession for more than a year. Only a cataclysm could have made me forget. I guess you could call them hitmen. You could also call Einstein a math whiz. Think ruthless. Think unstoppable. Think killers so proficient 'caught the ferry' was fast replacing 'bought the farm' in common usage, and you have the Ferrymen in a nutshell."

The transplant surgery goes off without a hitch—welcome news, because A.J. is raring for a rematch with Hell's Boatmen. But contrary to popular belief, what you see isn't always what you get. Take her new eyes, for example. Those baby blues may look perfectly normal, but they possess a power that turns her world upside down—the power to see into the hidden dimensions of the human heart.

When the Sight unmasks the mastermind behind the Ferrymen, the unveiling is as stunning as it is unbelievable. The revelation sets her on course for a second head-collision with evil. Will she survive the final encounter?
"Kathy DiSanto does an excellent job of combining several genres to give readers a really good read. So if you like futuristic Sci-Fi, mystery thrillers with a little romance thrown in then this is one book you will not want to miss. "Amanda's Eyes" has all the earmarks of being a fantastic series."

"This novel is absolutely amazing in terms of skillfully combining advances in technology, that is Science Fiction genre, with the human side of living in relatively near future. After all, the human touch, romance, suspense and psychological aspects of development are the things that make the narrative so convincing, readable, likeable, exciting and moving."

“Unexpected twists, turns and some heart-ache and loss interweave into an amazingly compelling page turner.”

“Captivating read. Dynamic mix of thrills and crime.”

“I felt like the author was a step (or five) ahead of me the entire time.”

“Intelligently written … the dialogue is sharp & quick, more is inferred than spoken and the humor is wry.”
