'Sleep No More' is a police procedural that had me guessing almost the entire way. I liked it, but the story would shift time without notice and that was a little confusing.
Aden Vanner is a cop with a past. As a former army member in Ireland, he's got a penchance for violence. When he beats a prisoner, this lands him in the sights of Superintendent Morrison of the CIS (aka internal affairs for us Yanks). At the same time, there are a series of revenge killings, going on by a killer known as the Watchman. Morrison likes Vanner for the killings, and even though he's been suspended, Vanner decides he should figure out who's behind it. With Morrison closing in, can Vanner find the real killer? Or is Morrison right to suspect Vanner after all?
I liked it, and I didn't immediately figure out how it was going to go. There were occasional flashbacks that would take place suddenly within a chapter, and that was kind of confusing at first, but I got into the flow of it as the book went along. Not a bad mystery.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Open Road Integrated Media and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
