The eighth pulse-pounding thriller from the Joe O'loughlin series by Michael Robotham: one of the greatest crime authors writing today.
The eighth thriller in the Joe O'Loughlin series, the inspiration for the major ITV series The Suspect.
I close my eyes and feel my heart begin racing
Someone is coming
They're going to find me
A mother and her teenage daughter are found murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other left lying like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her Prince. Reluctantly, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, calling himself 'the Mindhunter', jeopardises the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger.
With no shortage of suspects and tempers beginning to fray, Joe discover links between these murders and a series of brutal attacks where his victims have been choked unconscious and had the letter 'A' carved into their foreheads.
As the case becomes ever more complex, nothing is quite what it seems and soon Joe's fate, and that of those closest to him, become intertwined with a merciless, unpredictable killer . . .
Although the Joe O'Loughlin books can be read in any order, Close Your Eyes is the eighth in the series after Watching You. The next in the series is The Other Wife.
