Summary

Seven guests. Seven secrets. One killer. Do you dare to sleep?

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 has 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.

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up....

Critic reviews

"Beware! Sleep does not do what it says on the tin: I was awake until the small hours under its dark and twisty spell." (Fiona Barton)

"Sleep kept me awake until the early hours...extremely creepy, atmospheric and twisty. I never guessed that ending!" (Claire Douglas)

"Another cracking psychological thriller from CL Taylor. Sleep will keep you up all night." (Mark Edwards)

Twisted and turned with great pace

I loved this book. I guess who the villain was relatively early but the book keeps you guessing with teasers all the way through so I was never certain until it was revealed. Lots of action and interesting characters. Interesting setting too. Really like the author and the narrator.

Well written and well read

Enjoyed this book alot. I hate it when a book title gives the plot away and luckily this was not the case. I love that these is an extra short story written & read by the author - a really lovely little gothic treat

It's like an ITV3 whodunit

Definitely get at the moment while £3 sale still on!

3.5 better than 3 as it kept my interest all the way through wanting to go back to find out more, not quite a 4

Reminded me of what you'd watch on ITV 3, I enjoyed it,

Expected more

I thought there would be a much better twist in the tail than there was. It's okay but I wouldn't recommend it.

A clever who dunnit story.

The twists and turns of likely stalking candidates had me guessing until it was revealed. Brilliantly read by Claire, so many challenging voices delivered perfectly. Highly recommend.
I wasn't so keen on the bonus story. Not a great topic for my liking.
