The Shut Eye - by Belinda Bauer

I received an arc copy of this book in exchange for a review via NetGalley

A gripping story, this had you on the edge of your seat from start to end, it revolves around missing children, so as you can imagine it is very raw but also humorous in places.  I loved the way the author made the characters so real and believable, the parents of one of the missing children, James and Anna Buck go through all kinds of hell, to the point Anna thinks she is going through some madness.

Good police work usually find some path to close the cases, but they have old ones still on their books, will this be another one to sit dormant??  will it all be tied together? could the Inspectors missing dog be linked to it?  Well, this I cannot tell you as you need to read the book to find out.

This is a really great book with hints of the paranormal via psychic Richard Latham who Anna visits in order to find her missing son.  Anna's pain is devastating her, and you can feel her pain.  All in all a terrific book.
