Praise for this book

"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

"A vivid and unnerving story about the terrifying knife-edges of motherhood. Nail-biting, creepy and so sad." - Isabelle Grey

"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

"Expertly plotted and truly terrifying, this book forensically dissects every parent's nightmare." - Barbara Nadel

"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
