SLEEP NO MORE by GREG ILES
The New York Times-bestselling Dead Sleep brought Greg Iles
more fans than any of his novels to date. Critics used
words like "ingenious" (The New York Times Book Review)
and "stunning" (People) to describe its potent mix of
evocative Southern setting, passionate characterizations,
and dramatic action.
In Sleep No More, he returns to the territory of some of
his best-loved works, the steamy and hypnotic small-town
Mississippi where Iles himself grew up. In this new novel,
John Waters is a husband and father happy with his lot in
life, though he has not always felt that way. Years earlier
he escaped an obsessive love affair, which he feared might
consume him. The woman in question disappeared after Waters
married, and later he heard that she was killed in New
Orleans. But now, Waters has the uneasy feeling that she
has resurfaced to trouble him-and entice him-once again.
A woman whom he meets casually stuns him with a smile, and
a secret only this former lover would know. But when this
alluring stranger is suddenly murdered, Waters's quiet life
is enveloped in a whirlwind of guilt and suspicion,
revealing the shadow sides of love and friendship-and the
terror that can result when passion becomes obsession.
