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.
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.
A disturbing crime but a great story, (although because of the narrator I kept expecting Jack Reacher to show up)

A well written and very enjoyable detective story. It was also well-read (American accent was fine).
I haven't read any other books by this author but this story stands well on its own. i would certainly reccomend it.
