He was called to the investigative hunt by the presumptuous arrogance of murderers desxargar by their smug belief that they could kill without leaving a trace.
There was always a trace, Gurney believed. The facts of what has occurred are horrible: Reluctantly drawn in, Dave is quickly buffeted by a series of revelations that transform the bizarrely monstrous into the monstrously bizarre. Underneath it all may exist one of the darkest criminal schemes imaginable.
And as Gurney begins deciphering its grotesque outlines, some of his most cherished assumptions about himself are challenged, causing him to stare into an abyss so deep that it threatens to swallow not just him but Madeleine, too. Desperate to protect Madeleine and bring an end to the madness, Gurney ultimately discovers that the killer has left a trace after all.
Unfortunately, the revelation may come too late to save his own life. With Shut Your Eyes Tight, John Verdon delivers on the promise of his internationally bestselling debut, Think of a Number, creating a portrait of evil let loose across generations that is as rife with moments of touching humanity as it is with spellbinding images of perversity.

Lists with This Book. This is the 2nd book in the series and all I can say descargwr that I love this author. He knows how to ratchet up the tension.
If you like mysteries I highly recommend this series although I would start with book 1 because the case Dave Gurney was on in that book is mentioned a lot in this book. Plus it’s a damn good book IMO. View all 15 comments. Feb 16, James Thane rated it really liked it Shelves: When Dave Gurney retired from the NYPD as a decorated homicide detective and moved to an isolated country farm, he thought he was putting his old life behind him.
Certainly his wife, Madeleine, hoped that was the case, and she loves their new life of peace, quiet and long walks in the countryside.

She delights in her flowers, the wild life that abounds around the farm, and in her various hobbies. Dave, not so much. Gurney discovers that he misses the hunt. His job had energized and challenged him When Dave Gurney retired from the NYPD as a decorated homicide detective verdo moved to an isolated country farm, he thought he ojoe putting his old life behind him.
His job had energized and challenged him, and he finds that sitting around watching the asparagus grow is not all that fulfilling. A few months earlier, much lox Madeleine’s chagrin, Dave agreed to consult on a murder investigation, known as the Mellery case Think of a Numberand his doing so threatened his marriage and his life. Once the case was concluded, Dave determined to put homicide investigations behind him once and for all, but now he’s asked to consult again on a particularly difficult and gruesome case.
A young bride has married a very successful psychiatrist and then, only moments before the wedding toast, the bride is discovered in a small cabin on the property where the wedding is being held.
She has been decapitated and her head is left, sitting on a table, staring back at the rest of her body. The prime suspect is a mysterious Mexican gardener who was working on the property, who allegedly opposed the marriage and who has now disappeared. The jobn have launched desfargar massive manhunt for the missing man, but he has vanished, along with the neighbor lady with whom he was allegedly having an affair.
The bride’s wealthy mother is not happy with the way the police are handling the case and she offers Gurney a huge fee if he will look into it.
Vredon, Madeleine opposes the idea, but Dave is intrigued and finally suggests a compromise in which he will give the investigation a couple verrdon weeks and will then bow out, irrespective of the state of the investigation at that point.

Well, of course we all know how that’s going to work out. Before long, Dave will be deeply entangled in the most intellectually challenging case he’s ever confronted, and no matter what his wife thinks, he will have to see it through. To say much more about the plot would probably be unfair; suffice it to say that this is a complex, densely plotted and very entertaining novel with more than the usual number of unexpected twists and turns.
The characters are intriguing and the crimes are challenging. The book should appeal to anyone who enjoys a well-written psychological thriller. The first has to kjos with the relationship between Dave Gurney and his wife, Madeleine. Watching the way Dave’s first case impacted their relationship was interesting, but watching the same story a second time was less entertaining. Clearly the two are at cross-purposes regarding the way in which Dave will spend his retirement and one of them needs to give in to the other.
Either that, or they need to go their separate ways, but I would not want to read a third novel in which the two are constantly at odds over Dave’s work. My second concern involves a ojoos that occurs when Dave engages a particularly nasty character about midway through the book.
Dave is drugged and wakes up later with no memory of what has occurred over the last several hours.
Shut Your Eyes Tight
There is a serious possibility that he may have been photographed or filmed in a compromising situation. Dave thinks about the possibility of going to a hospital and having them run a tox screen to see what drug he might have been given. But then he decides against doing so. He iohn no idea what he might have libr doing for the last few hours.
He could have been set up for a very serious crime, and his only defense would be that he had been drugged and photographed in a compromising situation without his knowledge. The tox screen could confirm that he had been drugged and this is his only practical defense against whatever might be coming at him.
Once the drugs are out of his system, he will have no defense. Dave is a brilliant guy and an experienced police detective.
It’s inconceivable that he wouldn’t take this logical step to protect himself, and this colored the rest of the book for me. I still enjoyed the book a lot, but I would have enjoyed it more had it not been for these two irritating factors. View all 7 comments.

Fue, como dice Jack te quiero, Jack una cebolla con muchas, muchas Los personajes me encantaron. Sin duda fue mejor que el primero, y espero leer los otros muy pronto porque ya dudo mucho que no me vayan a fascinar. Dec 31, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. This is the second book I’ve read by this author and the plots are gripping and the main character although conforms pretty closely to the stereotypical male lead that bores me isn’t at all annoying.
There is one thing that bothered me in this book and in the first and I felt compelled to RANT about it. The main character’s relationship with his wife doesn’t make any sense to me. According to him, she is insightful and loving and beautiful and perfect.
To me she’s a horrible communicator, want This is the second book I’ve read by this author and the plots are gripping and the main character although conforms pretty closely to the stereotypical male lead that bores me isn’t at all annoying. To me she’s a horrible communicator, wants him to change what is fundamental to his nature and is SO passive aggressive!
He’s no prize either – he keeps making major decisions without talking them through with her and he seems completely incapable of remembering anything she tells him about what she’s doing or when they’re throwing a dinner party and instead of oh I don’t know, I’ll go out on a limb here and suggest something crazy like he write it down on a calendar or that they have a family calendar where they both write stuff down he just keeps forgetting.
Over and over again.

And he talks about how he’s forgotten. The only time he remembers where she’s going is when she goes to her sister’s house because their house was broken into by a crazed serial killer. That’s so sweet that he remembers where she is when their lives have been threatened. But back to her I kept waiting for them to decide to get divorced they were so out of tune with each other.
In fact that thought is what I remember most about reading the first book. It might be nice in the next book if she goes on some sort of extended trip on the first vedon and leaves a huge note on the refrigerator door where she’s gone so loe don’t have to deal with their relationship.
Tiene capas y capas, Davey. Es una maldita cebolla Son siempre asesinatos en donde todo parece literalmente impos Mi detective favorito: Luego viene la parte en la que Gurney se llena de pistas y todas son tan diferentes e inconclusas que no hay manera de hacerlas cuajar.
View all 3 comments. Aug 28, Ana M. Al ser el segundo caso de Dave Gurney, muchos personajes vuelven a aparecer, aunque descaargar una serie puede leerse de forma independiente sin problema. No solo en un detalle que ellos mencionan ojso en la forma. Por supuesto, el contenido es diferente, ambos casos lo son, pero la forma, el hilo argumental, me descargarr parecidos.
