Summary

Don't let him under your skin. He'll destroy you.

Don't fight him. He'll win.

Run. Never let him find you.

I thought I was safe here, but I'm not. I've stayed too long. Now Genevieve is dead and the police are on their way. It's time for me to go.

I must stick to the plan - the one I made the day I arrived in this city. My bag is packed. It always is. I will destroy every shred of evidence of my existence. The police must never find me. If they do, so will he. 

I made a mistake and someone had to die. But I'm the one who has truly lost her life.

I need to make a choice. If I keep running, I'll never stop. If I go back, he will make me suffer. 

How many lives can one person ruin?

A Tom Douglas thriller.

Brilliant but disturbing

Rachel Abbot is my favourite crime writer and never lets you down. But this story is quite disturbing. It grips entirely but I had warring emotions between not wanting to go on and dying to know was going to happen. So beware. I am now going to have some much needed relief by listening to an Agatha Raisin story.

Excellent Listen

Rachel Abbot is one of my favourite authors and ‘Close your Eyes’ did not disappoint. The narration by Lisa Coleman was excellent. Only complaint was I got hooked on the storyline and couldn’t stop listening to it that I got through it much too quickly. Well done Rachel

The best so far!!

I couldn’t put this book down. It’s very disturbing, but also educating. Shocking to believe that this actually happens in the world.

Narrator is very easy to listen to, as always.

Now the wait for the book to be written!!

Brilliant as always!

Rachel never fails to deliver something fantastic. I love how to two part intertwined. It took me a while to work out the killer and was shocked with the twist at the end!
I can't wait for the next one!

Eye opening and string characters

Very slow to start and almost gave up but as the story unfolds you can't stop listening as it is so real. Keep at it and you won't be disappointed. Brilliantly written.

Good read

Nice to listen to something out if the ordinary. The cult story made me feel a little uncomfortable but after listening to the authors notes at the end I can appreciate what a problem cults are.

Great... as usual.

Great character development and storyline. Just what I’ve come to expect from Ms. Abbott. I haven’t read a bad book from her. What I really appreciate about this series, is each one is a complete story that you can understand. They are self contained books in themselves and part of a series too.
Really enjoyed it after a depressing dry spell of duds.

Oh, Rachel, your brilliance shines through

Enjoying the anticipation, I anxiously waited a week or so to listen to “Close Your Eyes.” Author Rachel Abbott and narrator Lisa Coleman are a perfect creative duo. I do have to say this is one of her best. Abbott brings back DCI Tom Douglas and his partner Becky. Delving into a subject that, unfortunately, does happen in today’s society, Abbott creates every character with precision. Intricate twists and turns, eccentric and devious characters and surprises throughout and a then, BAM! POW! an ending I never saw coming and kept me thinking. Just last night, I watched “Dateline” on this very same subject and coincidently, a young girl’s name was also India. “Close Your Eyes” is well worth a credit or purchase. Again, thank you to Abbott and Coleman for another suspenseful and “complexellent” thriller. Highly recommended. Epic, I say! EPIC! EPIC! EPIC!

Worth the credit!

Great characters. Good plot/s. Nice to have 2 storylines without being too complicated. Great insight into cults except I couldn’t stand the mother!
