Description

'The most polished crime writer on the murder beat . . . Exhausting, exhilarating and damn scary, another 24-carat creation from the Queen of Thrills' Daily Express Five footprints are the only sign that Daniel Buck was ever here. Yesterday they were a family just like any other: Anna and James, and their little boy, Daniel. But in one careless moment everything changed. A front door accidentally left ajar . . . and Daniel was gone. Now they are a pair of strangers who can't even look each other in the eye. Distrust and unspoken words fill the void where their son used to be. Anna will go to any lengths to find Daniel - a four-year-old doesn't just vanish into thin air. But how far will this desperate search push her? Right to the brink. And beyond.show more

Review quote

"The most polished crime writer on the murder beat . . . Exhausting, exhilarating and damn scary" * Daily Express * "'Belinda Bauer is a marvel. Her novels are almost indecently gripping and enjoyable, and The Shut Eye is possibly her best yet" * Sophie Hannah * "One of the most individual of crime writers . . . Bauer is streets ahead of most of her rivals" * Independent * "A twisty, fast-paced plot that kept me on tenterhooks" * Woman & Home * "An intricate plot, extremely moving in some places - Bauer's ability to get under the skins of her characters is second to none" * Guardian *show more
