Through Dead Eyes

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

Alex’s life is a mess. Destabilised by his parents’ recent divorce and in trouble at school, he decides to dodge the fallout and join his father on a business trip to Amsterdam.

While his father works, Alex is left to explore the city in the company of Angelien, a stunning young woman to whom he feels increasingly attracted. But then, a seemingly random purchase of an old mask at a market draws Alex into an Amsterdam of centuries before where he becomes an unwilling witness to sinister and evil events, and the malice of the mask threatens to consume him completely.

Through Dead Eyes is a subtle, slow-burning tale from an acclaimed children’s author. A growing sense of malevolence gradually engulfs both protagonists and readers as the story progresses.
