Michael Robotham has nearly a dozen edge-of-your-seat novels, including the bestsellers Shatter and Lost. But his latest, Close Your Eyes, just won about the biggest praise a writer specializing is suspense can get: horror master Stephen King said he couldn’t put it down. Close Your Eyes, King wrote, is the “best Michael Robotham novel yet.”
Robotham has won plenty of prizes, not least the prestigious Gold Dagger Award bestowed by the Crime Writers Association. But you can bet the Australian author will have Stephen King’s blurb emblazoned on all forthcoming books. And it’ll have to be translated a lot to make it — Robotham’s books are routinely translated into 22 languages.
CLOSE YOUR EYES: The best Michael Robotham novel yet. Once I reached the last 100 pages, it really was impossible to put down.
