When he was the NYPD’s top homicide investigator, Dave Gurney was never comfortable with the label the press gave him: super detective. He was simply a man who, when faced with a puzzle, wanted to know.
He was called to the investigative hunt by the presumptuous arrogance of murderers - by their smug belief that they could kill without leaving a trace. There was always a trace, Gurney believed. Except what if one day there wasn't?
With Shut Your Eyes Tight, John Verdon delivers on the promise of his internationally best-selling debut, Think of a Number, creating a portrait of evil let loose across generations that is as rife with moments of touching humanity as it is with spellbinding images of perversity.

I'm still new to this so its in my top two of my four books so far!
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.
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.
