She can’t see the killer
But the killer can see her…
Naomi Hannah has been blind since birth. Struggling with living in the small, claustrophobic town of Balkerne Heights, Naomi contemplates ending her life. But before she can, Naomi stumbles across the body of a young woman who has been brutally murdered. She senses someone else there at the scene – watching her. Naomi may not be able to see the killer’s face, but she is still the only person who can identify him.
For Naomi, this frightening truth changes everything: she realises that she wants to live, at the very point at which her life is in greatest peril. As the police begin hunting the person responsible and the bodies pile up, Naomi must lie in wait and answer the question that hangs her fate in the balance: why did the killer let her live?
In a town this small, the murderer must be close, perhaps even before her very eyes…
Before Her Eyes is a pacy and unpredictable psychological thriller, a real page turner which I read in one sitting.
Naomi is blind and having a difficult time. When bodies start piling up around her she has to fight not only her own demons but suspicion from the police and the community.
There are plenty of twists and turns and a highly engaging and sympathetic character in Naomi, giving the reader a different viewpoint and is beautifully written all the way.
Jack Jordan does small town angst very well and this is cleverly plotted to maximum effect, with changing perceptions and a sharp edgy feel.
Overall a banging good read. Recommended.
