The first in a powerfully unsettling new trilogy by the master of the psychothriller, Sebastian Fitzek.
First he kills the mother, then he kidnaps the child. The grieving father is given 45 hours to search for them. If the child isn't found, they die, never leaving the place they have been imprisoned.
That's his method: the man they call the Eye Collector. Because the horror doesn't end there. All the bodies found are missing their left eye. And so far, the Eye Collector has not left any useful clues to his identity.
Until, that is, a mysterious witness comes forward: Alina Gregoriev, a blind physiotherapist who claims to be able to see into the past of her patients simply by touching their body. And yesterday she might have treated the Eye Collector...
