Eyes Closed Tight
Published: March 4, 2014
Peter Leonard has written another thriller crime story that’s hard to put down. I’d follow the unflappable hero O’Clair anywhere – and from Pompano Beach to Detroit, this is a one-of-a-kind ride. Leonard is pitch perfect in mood and pacing and the sound of people trying to do the right thing at the hardest, most bloodcurdling moment. The book sings, right up until the very last and satisfying line of dialogue.
The dialog among characters feels authentic, with no overdone prose. Leonard applies this same approach to action scenes, resulting in a thriller with a more realistic feel than many others.
“The story kept getting better and pulled me in. I read it straight through. This was an extraordinary book for me. I couldn’t put it down.”
I have to mention the dialogue one more time. It’s great. It’s memorable. It’s funny. I spilled coffee on my eReader three separate times before I even hit page 30. But don’t think EYES CLOSED TIGHT is front-end loaded. It is a good one from beginning to end that will keep you up all night reading and be glad for it. Peter Leonard, you owe me a night’s sleep. And maybe a new Kindle.
Eyes Closed Tight is an adrenalin-inducing suspense novel that’s sure to satisfy.
