Being a big fan of Only The Innocent and The Back Road, I was incredibly excited to get my hands on a copy of Rachel Abbott’s latest book, Sleep Tight.

It’s Tom Douglas’s third appearance in one of Abbott’s novels and, although his personal story follows on, the book can be read as a standalone. The story gets off to an eerie start and within two or three chapters you’ll be searching for answers to about a hundred questions, as you begin to feel an iron grip of tension that doesn’t ease up until the end. I found myself totally consumed by the many twists and turns, unable to imagine how the police would solve the case in front of them.

I’m going to refrain from talking about the characters, except to say they play their parts perfectly, and I will also not reveal anything about the plot. This is not to be annoyingly vague but because I feel that even the smallest hint could ruin this delightfully complex story.

So, if you like being thrown into the midst of a thrilling mystery then this is definitely the read for you. Rachel Abbott will have you tied up in knots and reading until the close will be the only way of untangling yourself.

Having read and loved Rachel Abbott's two previous reads, I was delighted to see 'Sleep Tight' appear in my 'Recommended For You' list and started reading this straight away (I actually abandoned another book in order to get started quickly!) This is another captivating read with many twists and turns that did not take long to read at all as "one more chapter..." was never enough.

DCI Tom Douglas - who appeared in Abbott's other two books 'Only The Innocent' and 'The Back Road' - has been asked to investigate a disappearance within a family that has had this happen to them before. In the first instance, it is husband Robert Brookes who has vanished with his and Olivia's three children. Although they are quickly found, two years down the line it is Olivia's turn to disappear with the children... and this one does not seem to have an innocent explanation. It is clear that Robert and Olivia's marriage is dysfunctional and that there is a complete lack of trust between the two although Olivia feels trapped. Despite the fact that I have come to expect the unexpected when it comes to Abbott's stories, I could not help but find myself being drawn to the same conclusions as DCI Douglas and his team. It has just the right amount of tension in the right places and has a good flow to the story.

Another excellent read that I highly recommend to anyone who loves a good crime thriller. I look forward to reading more about DCI Tom Douglas and another good mystery in due course.

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.

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.

This was one gripping psychology thriller, with this story there was no build up, it just jumped straight in there. The moment I started the first chapter. There was no point at which I felt I could put the book down, I needed to know what happened next, I read this book in less than 2 days!

The story begins with Olivia Brookes also known as Liv Hunt in her pre-marriage days. After she makes a phone call to the Police when her husband and three children do not return from an evening out eating pizza. The police unravel a young woman well known to the force from nine years earlier when her Iranian boyfriend had ran away and left her with their young baby daughter. She never sees him again but the police turn up a last text from his phone sent from Heathrow airport saying he is sorry and leaving for Australia. Olivia has never seen him since. Then two months later her parent both die from carbon monoxide poisoning, coincidence? Now nine years later, her husband and children are missing. Who is telling the truth? Who do you trust? An intelligent and thoroughly researched subject. Intriguing and gripping right to the very end.
