Belinda Bauer is a phenomenal voice in British crime fiction, whose work has garnered rave reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. The Shut Eye is a spine-tingling, edge-of-your-seat thriller about a woman who gets involved with a psychic who may be able to find her missing son. Five footprints are the only sign that four-year-old Daniel Buck was ever here. And now they are all his mother has left. Every day, Anna Buck guards the little prints in the cement. Polishing them to a shine. Keeping them safe. Spiraling towards insanity. Anna is desperate for hope, which she's not getting from the police, or her husband James. So when a woman tells her she's found a true psychic, a 'shut eye,' she grasps at it. Maybe he can tell her what happened to her son. But when she meets the psychic, what she gets is not at all what she suspected. Matching breathtaking suspense with a keen exploration of skepticism in the face of the unexplainable, The Shut Eye is a riveting read from one of our finest crime writers.

An okay mystery involving the disappearance of a 12 year old girl and a 5 year old boy. Seems a little convoluted including the assistance of the 5 year old boy’s crazy mother who turns out to be psychic.

I thought this book was terrific. The large print on WHITE paper made it so easy to read, which was a plus.
I liked this book more than Blacklands.

I took a star off because of the disappointing ending.
