C.L. Taylor

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…

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 eight guests join her, the life she’d dreamed of quickly becomes a 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.



She does it every time. A dark and clever tale of twisted mind games. Totally absorbing and addictive. Loved it.

I raced through Sleep in less than a day. It’s chilling, wonderfully atmospheric, and with a knock out ending I can’t stop thinking about.
