The Shut Eye by Belinda Bauer

Five footprints are the only sign that 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.  Spiralling towards insanity.

When a psychic offers hope, Anna grasps it.  Who wouldn't?  Maybe he can tell her what happened to her son…

But is this man what he claims to be?  Is he a visionary?  A shut eye?  Or a cruel fake, preying on the vulnerable?

Or is he something far, far worse?

Peer & Press Reviews

An intricate plot, extremely moving in some places – Bauer’s ability to get under the skins of her characters is second to none.

The Guardian

Belinda Bauer is a marvel.  Her novels are almost indecently gripping and enjoyable, and The Shut Eye is possibly her best yet.

Sophie Hannah

So much more than an simple whodunit – a clever, sophisticated modern crime novel.

The Sunday Mirror
