This is your typical psychological thriller where the main character is slowly suffering someone's ill will, yet no one believes her. It also happens to be quite a good example of the same.
Alex leaves work one night to meet her boyfriend, she wakes up and finds herself tied to an operating table, the person looming over her asks her a question, the answer to which will determine what happens next. Alex next comes round in front of her hospital colleagues. She was found in the car park, possible knocked out by a branch. No one believes her tale of the stranger, not even her closest friends. They all believe she is losing her mind. Connected to something that happened to her a year or so ago. But, is her mind all she is losing... as other stranger things start to happen to Alex, is she is in danger of losing much much more, including her life?
Ooh, this book did grab me from the off and kept its grip firm until the very end. I really felt for Alex as she struggled to get people to believe her. As things started crumbling around her, as her world literally imploded around her. In fact, I read pretty much from start to finish in only a couple of sittings, I really needed to know how it all panned out.
Alex was a great character. Wounded by something that happened about a year ago, she even begins to doubt herself at times, adding a new layer to the mix. It was fascinating watching her as she tried to piece together the who and how and, more importantly, the why. The other characters were a bit hit or miss to me. I always wonder about these books, how people who know and trust and understand other people can have a complete about face and turn on them on a knife edge.

Don't Wake Up by Liz Lawler is a thoroughly enjoyable book. It's a fantastic psychological thriller that mesmerised and scared me in equal parts!

I started reading this with a slight wariness as I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to scary stuff! But the blurb was interesting and I couldn't resist.

From the beginning it drew me in starting from the beginning of Dr. Alex Taylor's nightmare. Tied up and bound she doesn't know what's happening, has no idea who her captor is. She only knows one thing, that the man standing menacingly above her isn't the doctor he appears to be. She only had to answer one question correctly to save her life.

When Alex awakens she's in the company of her colleagues and friends and is safe. Or is she? Nobody believes her story. As time goes on and other people die Alex struggles to find out what happened to her that night. Or is it all in her mind? Is she really going mad? Is she the villain?

I read this long into the night in the house by myself as I could not put it down even as I was shivering slightly from the suspense and scenes that are written and set so well by the author. I had no idea who the masked 'doctor' was until the ends were unravelled and the big reveal presented itself.

Brilliant brilliant book by Liz. I'm looking forward to reading more by her.

Thanks to Liz Lawler & her publishers and Net Galley for my ARC copy.

•What’s the story?

Dr Alex Taylor has it all. A promising career, good looks, the respect of her colleagues, stylish apartment, close friends, brains, new car, gorgeous veterinarian boyfriend Patrick, she can even fly a helicopter.

But all that starts to crumble the night it happens.

After coming off shift, she changes for a date with Patrick (she even thinks this might be the night he proposes) and heads out to the hospital carpark to meet him. The next thing she is aware of is coming around, naked, in theatre. At first she is unsure why she is there; were they in a car accident? Is Patrick ok? Was she runover in the carpark?

Then a doctor appears; or rather, someone claiming to be a doctor. Alex is terrified and thinks she is going to be killed, raped or both.

When she regains consciousness again, she finds herself in a cubicle in her own A&E department. One of the hospital security guards had found her lying beneath a tree in the carpark and her friends and colleagues are understandably concerned. Then she starts to tell them what happened, however she appears unharmed. Other than a bump to the head, there is no sign of any trauma and she was found fully clothed.

Doubts are cast on her mental state, by both the police and those around her, and she finds herself unbelieved.

Drinking too much, and selfmedicating, her behaviour seems to become more and more erractic both at work and in her personal life. She feels let down by the police, who find no reason to investigate further; betrayed by her boyfriend’s ready acceptance that she is deluded; and her career is under threat because of errors she is seen to have made.
