"Eye Contact is a thriller of hypnotic suspense and a powerful story of the bond between a mother and a very special child." (back cover)
The story is about an autistic boy who witnesses the murder of a classmate but because of his autism can not communicate what happened. It is part drama, part mystery and even a little suspense. It was intriguing to read because I actually know very little about autism and it was obvious from reading the book that the author has some knowledge of the subject. I did find the mother character to be a bit annoying at times. And the ending was extremely predictable, but all in all it was an enjoyable read.
