For nine years Adam has been the centre of his mother, Cara's, world. And, she thinks, she has been the centre of his. Until the day he disappears. When he is found in the woods behind his school, beside the body of a little girl whom Cara has never heard of before, it feels as if her world has been torn apart. As Adam is locked into silence, unable to tell his mother what he has seen, Cara's desperation to understand her little boy becomes fiercer than ever.

A heartrending, utterly unputdownable story of the tangled bond between mother and child, Eye Contact engages the heart and will not let it go.
