A young blind woman has the world's first binocular eye transplant, but questions surround the operation. Why was she chosen and why was a major charity the main investor in order for the operation to happen. Niall Burnet a visually impaired journalist believes all is not as it appears. Using his contacts he begins to unearth a conspiracy - a one determined to ensure the transplant is a failure. Niall joins forces with the 'miracle patient' to finally discover the truth, a truth that threatens their very lives.
The author described the events following the transplant so sensitively and with empathy that I felt like I was in Susannah's head and seeing for the very first time too when she opened her eyes. With Susannah having been blind from birth it was such a frightening experience to endure and it was impossible not to feel sorry for her, being a pawn in someone else's deceitful game. I couldn't imagine not having my sight and this was a very thought provoking read into the world of the visually impaired, especially since the majority of us probably take our sight for granted.
The characters are very likeable apart from the ones you're supposed to despise. I loved Niall and Simon's friendship but for me the star of the show was loveable Hugo the guide dog, it almost felt like he had his own script!
'Eyes of the Blind' written by Alex Tresillian is an exciting, gripping thriller that had me totally hooked with a completely different premise to the normal run of the mill plot line. I was very curious to see the outcome of the conspiracy and I was not disappointed as to how it all unfolded.
I highly recommend this excellent debut novel and would love to read more of Niall and his wonderful sidekick Hugo in the future.
