PSYCHOLOGIST Joe O’Loughlin must find a killer before they strike again. But with few clues and public pressure mounting, there is little going right for him and the police officers he is trying to help.
As O’Loughlin battles to solve the mystery and calm the local community in rural Avon, various layers of the story unfold and it becomes apparent the killer might be hiding in plain sight. But solving the crime comes at a high price for the eminent profiler trying to shield those closest to him from the horrors of his vocation.
Michael Robotham is a journalist and biographer who has ghost-written autobiographies of politicians and showbiz stars. Close Your Eyes is his tenth novel and in Joe O’Loughlin, Robotham has come up with the sort of analytical mind which is made for adaptation to the small screen.
A gripping read for all lovers of crime thrillers, from a writer whose work has been lauded by the likes of Lee Child and Stephen King.
