The Smile Has Left Your Eyes Summary

Summary: The Smile Has Left Your Eyes is a psychological thriller written by Philip Pullman. It was the first time I have read the original release. Pullman introduced the story with the phrase, “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes”. The synopsis promised the thrilling conclusion to the mind-boggling mystery that the author infused all the characters with, in this masterpiece.

In the opening scene, the main suspect in the murder of the girl called Alice had just been released from the mental hospital he’d been locked up in. He’s still young, but has the smile that the police have been looking for. The only catch in the incident is the fact that the smile has left your eyes.

Pullman uses the incident as the perfect ending to the series of events the main characters went through during the course of the story. Pullman builds the whole plot around the mystery of the smile and the person who placed the smile upon his face. Pullman provides the mystery with the help of the various detectives and their contrasting way of solving the crime. Each of the suspects had left a clue at the scene of the crime that the other cop missed. Pullman uses the contrast between the bright light of the bright day and the shadows the night before as the plot to make the story gripping to the end.
