About The Book:
I'm going to make this statement right up front - Do Not Read this book before bedtime! Oh my goodness, talk about a goosebump raising, thrill-chilling roller-coaster of a book. Right from the beginning author Peter Leonard grabs the reader by the lapels and doesn't let go until the very last break-taking chapter.
I liked the main character of Oak O'Claire - he's a smart, sarcastic retired detective turned motel owner who finds himself draw into a series of murder investigations that have a familiarity about them that he just can't shake. I also liked his lady friend, Virginia - she's a great foil for O'Claire and just as smart and sassy to boot.
I appreciated the way that Peter Leonard paced the story, not showing the murderer's hand too soon and keeping the action moving along at a nice clip. A lot of his late father's influence can be seen through Leonard's writing - but this is also a unique tale exclusive to the son.
"Eyes Closed Tight" should definitely be on your To-Be-Read list if you are a fan of suspense and thrillers. I hope that Leonard brings us more of O'Claire's stories in the future. I predict they would be a huge hit, as this novel is destined to be.
