Book Description

From the author of the bestselling novels Only the Innocent and The Back Road

How far would you go to hold on to the people you love?

When Olivia Brookes calls the police to report that her husband and children are missing, she believes she will never see them again. She has reason to fear the worst; this isn’t the first tragedy that Olivia has experienced. Now, two years later, Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas is called in to investigate this family again, but this time it’s Olivia who has disappeared. All the evidence suggests that she was here, in the family home, that morning.

But her car is in the garage, and her purse is in her handbag – on the kitchen table. The police want to issue an appeal, but for some reason every single picture of this family has been removed from albums, from phones, from computers.

And then they find the blood…

Has the past caught up with Olivia?

Sleep Tight – if you can. You never know who’s watching.

More About the Author

Rachel Abbott was born just outside Manchester, England. She spent most of her working life as the Managing Director of an interactive media company, developing software and websites for the education market. The sale of that business enabled her to take early retirement and fulfil one of her lifelong ambitions - to buy and restore a property in Italy.

But even in Italy the winters can be cold and wet, and so Rachel decided to fill those dismal days by fulfilling another ambition - writing a psychological thriller! ONLY THE INNOCENT, her first novel, was more successful than she could ever have imagined, and it enabled her to change her life yet again, and become a full time writer. Her third novel, SLEEP TIGHT, was released on 24th February 2014 and was her third number one.

Stranger Child, Rachel's latest book, was released on 24th February 2015.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkly brilliant 17 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The author asks the reader to suspend disbelief right from the start. And I did.

Olivia is suddenly abandoned by her lover when he disappears. She is carrying his child. Then her parents are killed in a terrible accident. Reeling from despondency and loss, she is rescued by Robert, her knight in shining armour who takes care of her.

They marry, have children together, but don't live happily ever after. Olivia feels like Robert is always watching and controlling her. Robert insists that his wife is stressed and forgetful. He makes excuses for her to the school when she fails to pick up their children. When he goes out for pizza with the kids, and doesn't return, Olivia calls the police. But seems it's a false alarm, according to Robert. He claims he told her he was taking them overnight to spend time with them, since they are all too close to their mother.

The story is told from 3 POVs, Olivia's, Robert's, and the detective in charge of the case. There is also input from the detective's partner, his would-be girlfriend, and Olivia's best friend. As a reader, I wasn't sure if Olivia (done in first person) was an unreliable narrator, or whether Robert was gaslighting his wife.

The author grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. I read it late into the night.

This is more of a dark psychological mystery. The fast action doesn't begin until the end of the book. So readers that love a lot of action may not like this. I loved it, and the end was a huge surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another triumph! 24 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading the first two books by this author and so I've been waiting eagerly for Sleep Tight to come out. It's very rare these days that I can't stop reading a book but there is something about the way that the story unfolds that is riveting. The peeling back of each layer is done with such finesse that I found myself constantly reviewing what I already knew and in turn thinking I had it all sussed out before another little bit of information was revealed to throw everything up in the air again. This might sound like the author threw in red herrings and unnecessary twists and turns but it wasn't like that at all - it was just the way the story was revealed that was so perfectly done and then with such a nicely satisfying conclusion with all the lose ends perfectly dealt with. Brilliant! Even better that Rachel Abbott is becoming such a well-loved author without having to go down the traditional publishing route. I wish her much success for the future and can't wait for her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 26 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Could not put this book down, just such a good read, as are Rachel Abbott other books.
This book yet again makes you finish one chapter, and the just have to read the next one.
The twists in this book are so good, and yet so suttle that you do not see them coming. I read it in
Two days, but wish I had been more patient with my chapter frenzie, as now it is over. Waiting for the next
Book. I shall miss Tom, but not for too long I hope! No pressure Rachel!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A darned good read! 25 Feb. 2014
By Ignite TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Olivia is controlled by her husband Robert. He watches her even when they are in the same room. Early in the book, he takes the children away, telling her he’s taking them for a pizza, but doesn’t return straight way. She knows he is giving her a message here – what he will do if she leaves him. The story gathers momentum as we follow Liv’s point of view, her husband, her best friend and the police who try to fathom what has gone on, as Liv and the children go missing.

The writing as always, is excellent, and the beginning of the novel is tight and claustrophobic. It becomes tense and exciting as the hunt is on. Fans of the policeman Tom Douglas will be pleased to see him playing a lead role in the story. There are twists and turns in this tightly constructed plot and towards the end I felt my hear t racing as I hoped for a good outcome for a trio of innocent children. A darned good read!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too far fetched. 20 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read a lot of thrillers and detective novels but in all honesty I cannot recommend this book. It is to me a fairy tale, a Harry Potter world of outlandish circumstances and impossible coincidences. I really don't know why I completed the book but it was probably because I have only failed to read one or two books to the end in my life. What started as a reasonable mystery about where is Olivia turned into a pantomime. “Abbott creates a tangled web of deception, secrets, and red herrings” says one critic and indeed it is tangled – so tangled you will be forever looking back to check what the author is referring to. The description "psychological thriller” is something to be wary of in my experience. It gives the author carte blanche to be as outrageous as they may feel.

I realise I am in a very small minority here but as an experienced reader of this genre I have to say as I find. In all fiction one has to accept a certain stretching of points but this book goes way over the top and left me wondering what ridiculously far fetched circumstance was going to happen next.
I have not read either of Rachel Abbott's first two novels and after the boredom of reading Sleep I will not risk reading any more of hers. Maybe it's the coldness of Italy that is responsible but I truly wish Rachel had kept up her day job.
