Albena | 3 comments The genre is mystery/thriller, for adults.

I read it around the year 2005 but I took the book from a library, which means that it was way older - probably issued around 1980's - 1990's.
The book cover was with eyes behind bars or door.

The story was set in Italy, modern times. The main character was not Italian, though. He was probably American or English. He was a rich man who had a villa in some Italian province.
The most important thing about this book is that he was blind. The story was told from the perspective of the blind man - what he feels, what he hears.
He was living with his family - I'm not sure what exactly they were - maybe son and daughter in law? They were helping him cope with his blindness.
Meanwhile he started realizing that something is wrong - what they told him was not what he felt. He started suspecting that they lie to him.

Author female or male?
Part of a series?

No, it was translated in Bulgarian.
I don't remember the author.
It wasn't part of a series.
