Superb novel, fast-paced and thrilling
This is a superb novel, fast-paced and thrilling. Claire Stibbe knows how to write from the point of view of a child and skilfully draws the reader into emphasising with the villain. She never missed a beat while tenderly developing the relationship between Adam and Ramsey. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what the increasingly-likeable Ramsey had planned for the child and why. I felt quite tearful by the end of the book. This is a novel that will stay with you and the dark, brooding forests of New Mexico are now also etched into my sub-conscious; they are a character in their own right. ‘Night Eyes’ is very cinematic and would make a brilliant film. Claire Stibbe is emerging as a fabulous thriller writer.
