Publisher's Summary

In Sleep No More, Greg Iles returns to the territory of some of his best-loved works - the steamy and hypnotic small town Mississippi where Iles himself grew up. 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 an uneasy feeling that she has resurfaced to trouble him - and entice him - once again. A woman he meets casually stuns him with a smile and a secret only his former lover would know. But when this alluring stranger is suddenly murdered, Waters' quiet life is enveloped in a whirlwind of guilt and suspicion, revealing the shadowy sides of love and friendship, and the terror that can result when passion becomes obsession.

Just Plain Bad

When I came across this Greg Iles title, I was expecting more of his suspenceful and enjoyable storytelling. "Sleep No More" was, however, a serious disappointment. The premise was completely ridiculous, totally unbelieveable, and there were way too many sex scenes. I kept waiting for the story to re-enter the realm of the plausible, but it never did. This book is a complete waste of your time and money.

Please, No More!

I am a Greg Iles fan. However, I did not enjoy this book, Sleep No More, and was very disappointed. This book could be summed up as a supernatural sex thriller. Although the premise was intriguing, the heavy reliance on way too many explicit sex scenes took away from the suspense and flow of the plot. It made me wonder if Iles was practicing for a short story in a smut magazine.
