A judge is brutally murdered; a sixteen year-old girl is accused. Josie Bates, an attorney who left her high powered law practice when her skill inadvertently led to the deaths of two small children, cannot turn her back on this one. Reluctantly she takes on a case that will put both their lives on the line and change one of them forever.
A young blind woman participates in an experiment that could restore her sight but becomes unwittingly drawn into a dark and dangerous conspiracy:
Twenty-four-year-old Audra Carter, a deejay in Manhattan, won’t let mere blindness keep her from living life her way, sometimes even riding her bicycle through town, using her keen hearing and uncanny instincts to guide her. This is all much to the dismay of her father, Jenson, a neuroscientist who has devoted his career to finding a cure for her particular form of blindness. He now believes he has. With a number of test subjects, including Audra, Jenson takes his research to the next level, only to face apparent failure. Before long, a string of bizarre deaths involving the test subjects alarms Jensen and the FBI. Jensen is blamed for those deaths and fears his experiment was hijacked. Soon, Audra is kidnapped. As Jenson races to discover the truth, avoid the FBI, and save his daughter, Audra struggles with her captors and with a new and dangerous kind of seeing: darksight. Audra must not only master her mysterious darksight vision and fight oncoming madness, but also confront her past, to keep them both alive.
“An action-packed thriller full of authentic human drama skillfully depicted. … an intelligently conceived work, driven more than anything else by fully developed characters in the throes of real human emotions.” – Kirkus Reviews

“The blade that clears the path for medical progress has another edge, one that often creates unexpected, unimaginable, even unthinkable side effects, both real and imagined. Such is the case with DARKSIGHT. A tightly-written, fast-paced thriller that will make you think–and disturb your sleep. Highly recommended.” – DP Lyle, award-winning author of the Jake Longly and Cain/Harper thriller series.
“Mallery’s novel is a fast-paced thriller that is part X-Files mixed with a dash of CSI.” – The US Review of Books
“‘Darksight’ by DC Mallery is an insightful psychological suspense that will take you on a thrilling ride! … The heroine begins as a person with depth, but as she faces challenges, she really evolves into a woman of incredible strength. … Fans of science fiction, suspense, and thrillers will love ‘Darksight.’ It would also make an excellent selection for a fiction readers group. Lively conversations are guaranteed!” – Reader Views.
“Author DC Mallery has clearly done his research as Darksight is brimming with science and technology that makes it feel like a Michael Crichton novel. … Ultimately it is a book that asks what you would do if you could have your one big wish come true: your sight restored…but there is always a caveat, and sometimes those caveats cost lives.” – San Francisco Book Review.

Darksight was inspired by the real medical phenomena called blindsight, which is the amazing ability that some individuals with cortical blindness have to "see" objects they can't see. With that type of blindness, the retina and optic nerves still function, but the part of the brain that processes vision — the visual cortex — is badly damaged. Yet some people with cortical blindness are still "aware" of objects they can't consciously see. That is, they see without seeing.
Darksight takes blindsight to new and terrifying levels.
