My review of Sleep Tight, written by Rachel Abbott
This is the second book I’ve bought in as many months called Sleep Tight. The other is written by Caroline Mitchell. So far, I’ve only read Rachel Abbott’s book, which I bought primarily because I was going to a meet-the-author event at Oldham Library, where she spoke engagingly alongside two other authors. I thoroughly enjoyed both the event and reading her involving psychological crime thriller, Sleep Tight. I was born in Jersey and lived there for eighteen years, so I particularly appreciated that another Channel Island, Alderney, was one of the settings for the story. I’d visited Alderney as a child and it's now one of the places where Rachel lives.
I found Rachel Abbott’s style easy to digest, so I had no problem being immediately sucked into the story, which centred around Olivia’s problems with her husband Robert’s dangerous, creepy obsession with her. DCI Tom Douglas and his officers are set on protecting her and her children from deranged Robert, who is equally set on destroying everything to do with Olivia, including her children after she runs from him. The tension mounted satisfyingly and there are a few unexpected twists, but I’m not going to say more in case I spoil it for anyone. I’m looking forward to reading more thrillers by Rachel Abbott, especially as I have a signed copy of The Sixth Window on my bookshelves begging to be consumed.
