Editorial Reviews

"Clever and compelling, While My Eyes Were Closed tells the story of the disappearance of a child in many different authentic voices. You feel the effect it has on all the characters, even the ones you're not sure you're supposed to feel sympathy for. This is brave story, which is touching right down to the final word. I so enjoyed this book." (Dorothy Koomson, Sunday Times top 10 best-selling author)
"A beautifully crafted novel of knife-edge suspense that held my attention to the very end. I wanted to compare the author to Gillian Flynn or Alice Sebold, but that wouldn't be right. This book is one 100 percent Linda Green, and Linda Green is bloody brilliant!" (Amanda Prowse, #1 best-selling author)
"The suspense becomes quite unbearable - and there's a final flourish in the form of a very punchy twist. A terrifyingly plausible story, that will have parents looking over their shoulders." (Sunday Mirror)

Publisher's Summary

Dare you close your eyes for even a few seconds? One, two, three...
Lisa Dale shuts her eyes and counts to 100 during a game of hide-and-seek. When she opens them, her four-year-old daughter, Ella, is gone. Disappeared without a trace. The police, the media and Lisa's family all think they know who snatched Ella. But what if the person who took her isn't a stranger? What if they are convinced they are doing the right thing? And what if Lisa's little girl is in danger of disappearing forever?

Page turner

I found this a great addictive listen. Strong story line and superb characters that I could identify with. You know a good book when by the end you know and understand them all. Can recommend as a good listen.

Exciting believable and moving story

This is so believably written. I could not stop listening - earphones in while cooking cleaning and shopping to stay in touch with the characters and the story. I wish she'd written a dozen more books for me to lose myself in. Ten out of ten!
