Thanks, Indrid and Waffly that does ring a bell. Off to google it.

Sorry, Rooners - it was one of those books that was in equal parts horrific and fascinating. I don't recommend American Psycho!

God I wish I hadn't read that.

The Insult was the one that sprung to mind here too.

I don't think it is the one you are looking for, but 'The Insult' by Rupert Thomson has a blind man who can see. He's trying to find a missing girl.

Great book, one of my favourites!

No idea, I don't really read interesting stuff like this but bumping for you. It is frustrating when you can't remember something you enjoyed.

Written within the last 15 years (I know that's not much help).

As I recall the main protagonist was a blind man who was suddenly able to 'see' again and witnessed a crime.
There was lots of detail in the narrative about what he'd seen, how he'd see it, and something about him drawing/writing something on a notepad. I think there was a female detective involved in the case.

There was also something about murders - women being 'filleted' with their bellies torn open, and the perpetrator of this crime was someone with learning difficulties.

I think it was set in America or Canada.

Sorry, realise that's not much to go on, but hoping it rings a bell with someone.
