Publisher's Summary

Number-One International Best Seller

When a former student bungles a murder investigation, clinical psychologist Joseph O'Loughlin steps in to face a ruthless killer.

A mother and her teenage daughter are found murdered in a remote coastal home, one defiled by multiple stab wounds and the other posed like Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince. Joe O'Loughlin is drawn into the investigation when a former student, trading on Joe's reputation by calling himself "the Mindhunter", jeopardizes the police inquiry by leaking details to the media and stirring up public anger.

Joe discovers a link between the farmhouse murders and a series of vicious attacks in which the victims are choked unconscious and brutally scarred. Now Joe must stop a ruthless and brash criminal who has apparently graduated to murder.

Much to his surprise, he is ably assisted by his eldest daughter, now a keen and courageous observer in her own right. Together they must track and catch a hunter who seems to anticipate every move they make.

    "Damn, that was good."

    Michael Robotham never disappoints. His stories are riveting, his characters real, his writing mesmerizing. I hope this won't be the last we've seen of Vincent Ruiz and Joe O'Loughlin.

    "I hated for it to end!"

    I love books by Michael Robotham, and I particularly enjoy this narrator. Really had me guessing, at the edge of my seat, from the very beginning. I love Joe and Vincent… This is your first book featuring them, then for goodness sake, go back! You don't know what you're missing!

    Story
    "This book will not disappoint you, the Joe O'Loughin series continues."

    I have read the entire series. I was introduced to Robotham, years ago, by the owner of an English language book shop in Cannes. Since then, I have found him in bookstores all over the world as I travel. Close Your Eyes will not disappoint you if you have enjoyed the others. I listened to the audible version this time as I was driving and enjoyed it immensely. Sean, the narrator, did an excellent job. His voice was perfect for how I picture the characters voices. I look forward to the next book.

    "Another Great One!"

    Once again, both author and narrator did not disappoint! I have really enjoyed all of M.R's. books in this series, and don't think that anyone but S.B. could bring the characters to life so well, especially that of Joe. Robothum's writing kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and in fact, I stayed awake until 5 A.M. to find out what happens. As for Barret's performance, he played the part of every single character with the same believability as always. At this point, after hearing his portrayal of all the main characters book after book, I can actually distinguish who is speaking, based upon his consistent voices. With regard to this particular story, S.B. did a wonderful job of being the psychologically disturbed perpetrator. He really gave me the creeps! Also, I was extremely surprised by the ending. Never saw it coming! Look forward to more from their partnership.

    Story
    "Struggling with Challenges on Every Front"

    Joe's health continues to be a challenge. His separation from his beloved wife is painful. He's smart and wants to help the police, but is reluctant to be involved due to pressures on his personal life. And his losses add up. I love this character. I wish there was more Ruiz in this book, because I love the support the two give each other. Not to give anything away, but this is a sad story, very well written.

    "A thriller to keep you o the edge of your wear"

    This is and exquisitely crafted novel. The characters are so well drawn. the narrator keeps the Listener in thrall. This is the first of this author's books I have read and I believe I will have to read many more.

    Story
    "Not Bad, but"

    Not the best book in the series, but readable... The story takes a bit to get going and has a very somber mood throughout... The mystery's a good brain teaser and really ramps up at the end, but it takes a while to grab you... Underlying is the personal/reconciliation issues in counterpoint which feel disjointed... The ending of the book is highly emotional and things do get pretty dusty... I think some of my awesomeness leaked out;). The narration is superb and makes it a better read than would have been in print/digital format... Worth a credit, but barely...

    Story
    "It's not as it seems, it's porn in a different wra"

    You mystery thriller and sexually explicit don't come under the same classification.
    The book is mainly about perverted sex, pedephiles, and the possible connections through arm chair psychology.
    Waste of a credit...waste of time. And a wasted effort in my opinion....but I have been wrong before,,,no not this time....its just trashy

    "great story"

    reader voice inflections too low. would have given excellent rating if reader voice would have been clearer.
