Close Your Eyes

This is a great story from Iris Johansen and her son Roy. This story is filled with action and will keep you reading all night long. This is the second book I have read that was written by Iris and Roy Johansen. When I found out that they had co-authored another book together, I could not wait to get my hands on it. I hope that there will be another one in the future.
