THE #1 BESTSELLER: a nail-biting psychological drama for fans of Liane Moriarty and CL Taylor.

One, two, three . . . Lisa Dale shuts her eyes and counts to one hundred during a game of hide-and-seek. When she opens them, her four-year-old daughter Ella is gone. Disappeared without a trace. The police, the media and Lisa's family all think they know who snatched Ella. But what if the person who took her isn't a stranger? What if they are convinced they are doing the right thing? And what if Lisa's little girl is in danger of disappearing forever?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Clever and compelling, While My Eyes Were Closed tells the story of the disappearance of a child in many different authentic voices. You feel the effect it has on all the characters, even the ones you're not sure you're supposed to feel sympathy for. This is brave story, which is touching right down to the final word. I so enjoyed this book * Dorothy Koomson, Sunday Times top ten bestselling author *
A beautifully crafted novel of knife-edge suspense that held my attention to the very end. I wanted to compare the author to Gillian Flynn or Alice Sebold, but that wouldn't be right. This book is one hundred percent Linda Green, and Linda Green is bloody brilliant! * Amanda Prowse, #1 bestselling author *
The suspense becomes quite unbearable - and there's a final flourish in the form of a very punchy twist. A terrifyingly plausible story, that will have parents looking over their shoulders * Sunday Mirror *
A powerful and provocative read that will get under your skin * Sun *
This novel is fantastic. I couldn't put it down . . . I read it with my stomach fluttering the whole time * BBC Radio Leeds Book Club *
An ambitious premise, brilliantly executed * The Lady *
Expertly plotted and truly terrifying, this book forensically dissects every parent's nightmare * Barbara Nadel *
A vivid and unnerving story about the terrifying knife-edges of motherhood. Nail-biting, creepy and so sad * Isabelle Grey, author of The Bad Mother *
Packed with emotion, the suspense of the devastation situation this family find themselves thrust into through circumstance is apparent through every page of this thrilling read. A real page turner * Telegraph & Argus *
Terrifying, brilliantly plotted. Linda Green manages to construct an amazing scenario out of every parent's worst nightmare and make it incredibly plausible * Emily Barr, author of The Perfect Lie *
