9780751552881: Close Your Eyes

When a former student bungles a murder investigation, clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin steps in to face a ruthless killer.A mother and her teenage daughter are found murdered in a remote farmhouse, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other posed like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince. Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, trading on Joe's reputation by calling himself the "Mindhunter," jeopardizes 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 discovers a link between these murders and a series of brutal attacks where the men and women are choked unconscious and the letter "A" is 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.

About the Author:

Michael Robotham is one of the world's most acclaimed writers of thriller fiction. He began his career as an investigative journalist in Australia and Britain and later became a ghostwriter, collaborating on more than a dozen bestselling autobiographies for pop stars, actors, decorated soldiers, and politicians. His first psychological thriller, Suspect, sold more than a million copies around the world. Lost, his second novel, won the Ned Kelly Award for Australia's best crime novel in 2005--an award he won again in 2008 with Shatter. He has been short-listed twice for the CWA Steel Dagger.

Review:

One of the Best Books of 2016- The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Close Your Eyes: the best Michael Robotham novel yet. Once I reached the last 100 pages, it really was impossible to put down."―Stephen King

"[Robotham] is such a strong writer, and in London clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin he has such an appealing investigator."―Lloyd Sachs, Chicago Tribune

"Yet another winner . . . [A] well-crafted thriller"―Harry Levins, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"You won't want to close the book on this one. The new thriller by Michael Robotham, Close Your Eyes, is reason to stay up late. . . . The mystery and suspense is reason enough to keep reading, but Robotham ups the ante with a rousing family drama that adds an emotional complication to his lead's life. . . . Robotham drafts brilliantly descriptive passages that paint vivid scenes and sweep readers along in the narrative."―BookPage

"Robotham turns in a tightly written story that's flawlessly plotted . . . Robotham's writing is so smooth and his characters so well-drawn . . . Robotham's crime thrillers are at the top of the genre's food chain."―Kirkus Reviews (starred)

"First-rate suspense with a strong emotional component"―Booklist (starred review)

"Insightful, compelling, and superbly written, this masterly thriller will keep readers glued until the final page. Robotham brings a dry, sardonic wit to his latest book, which will likely delight readers of Ian Rankin and P.D. James.―Library Journal (starred)

"Robotham skillfully keeps the murderer's identity hidden until almost the very end. He writes with sharp insight into the tangled psychological webs formed from love and loathing and fear; the subplots involving Joe's family give Close Your Eyes emotional resonance and make this a series changer."―Shelf Awareness

"Gripping . . . Robotham's tightly plotted whodunit meshes beautifully with a truly emotional family saga involving Joe's former wife."―Publishers Weekly
