Sleep (Hardback)C. L. Taylor (author)
With haunting echoes of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, Sleep takes you deep into a nightmare where nobody knows who to trust. C.L. Taylor expertly manipulates her sealed location and closed cast of characters to perfection to craft one of the year’s most terrifying thrillers.
All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn't feel so guilty...
To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare.
Each of the guests have a secret, but one of them is lying - about who they are and why they're on the island. There's a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they've set their sights on Anna.
Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.
