For nine years Adam has been the centre of his mother Cara's world. And, she thinks, she has been the centre of his. Until the day he disappears.
When he is found in the woods behind his school, beside the body of a little girl whom Cara has never heard of, it seems as if her world has been torn apart. As Adam locks himself in silence, unable to tell his mother what he has seen, Cara's desperation to discover the truth becomes fiercer and more urgent than ever.
A heartrending, haunting story of the tangled bond between a mother and her child, Eye Contact grips the mind as it engages the heart.
"Nobbody who knows an autistic child could fail to be engaged by this fanastic thriller...Wise and moving, as well as gripping."
