Publisher's Summary

When he was the NYPD’s top homicide investigator, Dave Gurney was never comfortable with the label the press gave him: super detective. He was simply a man who, when faced with a puzzle, wanted to know.
He was called to the investigative hunt by the presumptuous arrogance of murderers - by their smug belief that they could kill without leaving a trace. There was always a trace, Gurney believed. Except what if one day there wasn't?
With Shut Your Eyes Tight, John Verdon delivers on the promise of his internationally best-selling debut, Think of a Number, creating a portrait of evil let loose across generations that is as rife with moments of touching humanity as it is with spellbinding images of perversity.

Never Shut Your Eyes

This book had me from the start, the narration was fantastic. Dave is a retired NYPD cop with a history and one bad case where I presume he was nearly killed and he moved to the country with his 2nd wife Madeline. Dave has a son whom he seems estranged from and another son who died. Dave craves a bit more excitement than watching the asparagus grow. His wife seems quite content. Dave gets sucked into just one more case because of his talents for working out puzzels. I won’t go into the storyline you can read it. He makes a lot of progress on the murders, many interesting characters twists and turns. He thinks nothing of letting his wife know his whereabouts etc., job comes first. Great suspenseful read.

Top rating for a great reading of a gripping story

Where does Shut Your Eyes Tight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm still new to this so its in my top two of my four books so far!

What other book might you compare Shut Your Eyes Tight to and why?

I took a chance on this, I'm new to detective stories, with the exception of Sherlock Holmes.
I'm very glad I did as the story has been gripping, without being gruesome and enthralling for the duration.

What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

Very good at portraying the individual characters, if I missed a piece of narrative regarding a characters name, I found it easy to know who it was by the readers' voice.
