Eyes Closed Tight by Peter Leonard

O'Clair is a former Detroit homicide investigator who now owns a motel in Pompano Beach, Florida in his retirement. He runs the place with his much younger girlfriend, Virginia, who's a knockout and can fix anything. One morning, he’s cleaning up after the previous night’s partiers when he sees a lovely young woman stretched out asleep on a lounge chair. He shakes her gently. Then he touches her neck and feels for a pulse. There isn't one. Her skin is cold, body starting to stiffen, definitely in the early stages of rigor.When a second girl is murdered, O'Clair knows someone is trying to send him a message. The way the girls are killed reminds O'Clair of a case he investigated years earlier. Now convinced the Pompano murders are related, O'Clair returns to Detroit Police Homicide to review the murder file and try to figure out what he might have missed.And when Virginia is kidnapped by the killer, the stakes grow exponentially higher.The most powerful work to date by one of the most thrilling suspense novelists of our time, EYES CLOSED TIGHT is relentless, surprising, and deeply satisfying.

From the hotel guests that check out and magically reappear a day or two later with a room complaint to the time line fail while searching for his girl friend, this book is a mess. Criminal investigation practices, interfering with crime scenes and evidence, there just isnt a whole lot to recommend this book. Get an editor.

O’Clair (he goes by only one name) put in his time as a Detroit detective, bought a motel in Florida and runs it with his beautiful girlfriend, Virginia. But instead of peace and quiet, crime never leaves him. One morning, while straightening up the pool area, he notices a chaise missing. Looking around, he sees it nearby on the beach, and on it lies a strangled woman whose eyes are missing. A while later, another chaise is on the beach, this time with the body of his cleaning woman. Same MO. Many years before in the Motor City, O’Clair had arrested a man who was convicted of committing two similar murders. Convinced the Florida and Michigan crimes were related, O’Clair goes to Detroit to read the file and interview the convicted man, who is serving two consecutive life sentences. While he’s up north, a lot is happening down south, including the abduction of his girlfriend. Up to this point, the plot and characterizations are just fine. As the plot draws to a conclusion, however, is where the reader bumps into sort of a roadblock and the going just gets a bit less smooth. Instead of a tightly honed finish, the author chose to bring the novel to a jerky ending, jumping back and forth, trying to tie all the loose ends together by telling one incident, and then jumping back a few minutes before to relate another event, consequently jumping to yet another occurrence some minutes ahead. This approach is somewhat disconcerting and detracts from what otherwise would be an excellent thriller. Nevertheless, exceptions can be made for a top-notch author, and the novel is recommended.
