Just finished Shadow Season a good mystery by Tom Piccirilli. It details recollections and images, fears and obsessions vividly revealed by Finn, a blind teacher at a prep school for girls. In his life previous to the school he was a cop whose career ended violently.
It is one of the few books I have ever read that compels readers to keep on reading, even though there are no sympathetic characters in any of it. It makes you wonder how a writer can do that. Worth a read.
