Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbott. Read May 2014.

“How far would you go to hold on to the people you love?…Sleep Tight – if you can. You never know who’s watching.”
Until a few months ago I hadn’t heard of Rachel Abbott. I became aware of her through Twitter and a recommendation from The Crime Book Club (@crimebookclub). Now that I’ve read all three of her Tom Douglas series books I am definitely a member of the Rachel Abbott fan club.
Sleep Tight is a story of off-the-scale obsession leading to a terrifying situation for Olivia Brookes and her three children. The book is very well written and is an absorbing and exciting example of my favourite reading material, the psychological thriller.
The various strands of the complex plot are knitted together very cleverly. One of the things I enjoyed most was the level of detail in every part of the story, allowing the reader to feel sure that all the loose ends would be dealt with eventually.
I am a big fan of crime fiction series, especially like this one, with a strong set of recurring characters. I always read series in order and would again recommend doing this with the Tom Douglas series. I think if you were to read them out of chronological order you would miss out in the interesting back stories that explain the characters’ actions. Therefore I strongly suggest you read Only The Innocent & The Back Road before Sleep Tight.
With thanks to the author for providing the e-book for review.
Highly recommended.
