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

‘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

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 have 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.

The million-copy bestseller is back in her darkest, twistiest book to date. Read it if you dare! Perfect for fans of Lesley Kara’s The Rumour and Cara Hunter’s DI Fawley Thrillers.

A really creepy and atmospheric story. There were so many believable suspects as a lot of them were so unlikeable, I was convinced in the wrong direction more than once! The story is thrilling and full of suspense. I found it difficult to put down. The creepy atmosphere kept me awake! A very good read and an author I will definitely read more of. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy.

Anna has terrible insomnia, she hasn't really been able to sleep properly since the accident, the guilt is eating her up from the inside. She decides the best thing for her to do is just get away, so she goes as far away from her problems as she possibly can, and accepts a job on a remote Scottish island called Rum. Getting ready for a busy period, 7 guests are checked into the Bay View Hotel. Each one of them has a secret, but one has a deadlier secret that Anna doesn't know about. Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie. Someone’s going to sleep and never waking up... I love a 'Who-Done-It' story, and this one was just wonderful, it wasn't too fast paced, but it gradually sucked you into the story, until the inevitable I didn't see it coming! Prepare to turn into a detective while you try and work this one out!
