Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a thriller about the extent to which some people go to enjoy the unusual in art. More that that, it is the story of Jordan Glass, a photo-journalist whose twin sister disappeared some time ago. It is her story of struggle, hopes, fears and redemption. It is as "picture perfect" (pardon the pun) a book as possible with interesting, riveting characters - both good and bad.
The internal workings of the FBI, the love story with the agent, the four suspects and their stories - it is beyond me how anyone can find fault with this book. True, it is not an action packed thriller (quote unquote) but for those who are more inclined to the thriller (as opposed to the shoot-em-up type), it is a welcome addition.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the Sleeping Women paintings changes Jordan Glass' life. She is the image of the nude woman either sleeping or dead, but she did not pose for the painting. Thus begins Jordan's journey to find out if the painting is her sister Jane Lacour, her twin who is missing and presumed dead.
There is a luscious cast of characters, both suspects and investigators. The plot is well developed, and all too plausible since many women do disappear from their lives. Most do not run away from the two children and a good husband they adore. Jane certainly didn't leave them intentionally.
I enjoyed Iles contemplation of the connections between identical twins. Even with Jordan's memory about the moment she felt her sister's death, she never gave up hope that Jane would be found alive. Perhaps the sensations she thought were Jane's death weren't. After learning what happened to Jane, I wondered if Jane had felt similar sensations about Jordan - that is how "real" these characters were.
This book is outstanding; it is a page-turner in the truest sense of the words. I came to some of the same conclusions as Jordan did, but in the end only her creativity and depth of knowledge could save her life.
Five stars!

This is the first time I have read a Greg Iles novel and it will be the last one I read of his. Don't get me wrong it was an interesting idea but I felt it fell apart towards the end. To me it ended up being just silly.

After reading his previous books which are geat mysteries, this has disappointed greatly. Wierd is not descriptive enough. A person's soul jumping from body to body almost at will is wierd, ubelievable and not an interesting subject for readers of his previous great books. I would think thrice before buying any more of his books.

This story by Greg Iles, as read by Ms. Susie Breck (very attractive, according to the photo on the back of the audio version [abridged]) is a compelling story, well read, and has a very emotional ending. The characters are strong, especially Jordan Glass, as she searches for her sister. The Wheaton character is dark, chilling, and creepy, with a disturbing past.
The story moves along at a fairly nice pace. I would also recommend 24 Hours (filmed as "Trapped" with Charlize Theron) and the Quiet Game. Excellent idea for a movie (better than most out there now).

Greg Iles returns to delivering a complex and suspenseful plot with intriguing characters in Dead Sleep. Like Mortal Fear, this is also a present day serial killer thriller. Instead of being linked by a computer service, this time the victims are the subjects of a rare and highly sought-after set of paintings. Again the initial investigator, this time a photojournalist, gets wrapped up in the chase, ultimately to an extremely personal level. Once again the victims are females, and much of the book is set in the South (New Orleans). It is not as good as Mortal Fear, but it is still quite good - it is Greg Iles doing what he does best.

This is a story of crime, passion, love, hope, rejection, it is many things, and the characters draw the reader in with their complexities. It takes place in New Orleans, but jumps to other parts of the world occasionally.
As a successful, professional photographer, Jordan Glass is recognized in her field, as her famous father once was. He has been missing, presumed dead in Cambodia for over 30 years. She has always missed him and never given up on the fact that he may still be alive, but has kept an emotional distance from any man she could love and possibly lose again. At 40 years of age she remains single.
While in Hong Kong on a business trip she browses an art gallery and is puzzled by the gasps of onlookers as they look at her and back at a painting of a woman in "repose." As she approaches the painting the reason for the stares are obvious - the woman in the painting looks exactly like her. Is she asleep or dead? She looks dead, and it disturbs her a great deal, as her twin sister has been missing for over a year. Could she have been killed and posed for the painter? Thus begins a story with so many twists and turns that you have to keep reading it. It is very well done. There is no shortage of action once it gets moving. It involves the FBI, the NOPD, swat teams, and the reader gets well acquainted with them too.
I have not read a book of this caliber for some time. The last half of the book was especially hard to put down, and kept me up many nights past my bedtime.
If you are the type that has to have your attention grabbed on the first page, be a little patient with "Dead Sleep" - it will be worth the short wait. It is a good book for either a man or a woman. Give it as a gift to an avid reader, you won't be sorry, and neither will they!
