From the author of former Waterstones Thriller of the Month Dear Child, Sleepless is another eerie, psychologically taut thriller that deals endless twists in a gruesome story of dark secrets and retribution.
It's over, my angel. Today I'm going to die. Just like her. He's won.
It's been years since Nadja Kulka was convicted of a cruel crime. After being released from prison, she's wanted nothing more than to live a normal life: nice flat, steady job, even a few friends. But when one of those friends, Laura von Hoven - free-spirited beauty and wife of Nadja's boss - kills her lover and begs Nadja for her help, Nadja can't seem to be able to refuse.
The two women make for a remote house in the woods, the perfect place to bury a body. But their plan quickly falls apart and Nadja finds herself outplayed, a pawn in a bizarre game in which she is both the perfect victim and the perfect murderer ...
Dark secrets past and present collide in this haunting novel of guilt and retribution from the internationally bestselling author of Dear Child.
