Sleep No More by Greg Isles is a soulful chiller of a thriller.

When John Waters, a happily married family man, is approached by a beautiful intriguing stranger who whispers one mysterious word--soon--his life takes an unexpected turn. Suddenly everything he knows as truth and reality spirals out of control as someone from his past reappears. But it is the way that she reappears that will shock you. And it is what she does next that will chill you even further.

This novel is rather difficult to review without giving away the plot or the key mystery, but it is sure to give you goosebumps and you won't look at those around you the same way ever again. It is a mix of horror and suspense, a bit of fantastical and a ton of thriller, and overall, it's one novel you won't want to miss. Greg Isles keeps the tension taut until the bitter end. Kudos!

After the success of DEAD SLEEP the author decides to try something new with SLEEP NO MORE. This book is not a sequel but a new standalone novel that includes a pair of characters from THE QUIET GAME. Before the story begins the author warns the reader to prepare for a wild ride and he is not kidding. Iles does this by creating a noir novel and placing it in The Twilight Zone.
Geologist John Waters is living a somewhat comfortable life. He lives in Natchez, Mississippi, has a successful business and a loving family. The only thing that is troubling him is that his wife is reeling from two previous miscarriages and the Environmental Protection Agency is looking hard at some of the work Waters has done. They are all regular problems that eventually will be solved. His life as he knows it will change one afternoon during his daughter's soccer game.
While watching the game he is entranced by Eve Sumner, a young real estate agent working and living at Natchez, who leaves Waters with a sense of deja vu. She sends him a signal only known to him and a former lover named Mallory Candler. What make this even stranger is that Mallory died from a brutal assault and rape that happened in New Orleans ten years ago. What is Eve Sumner's relationship with Mallory? When he finally meets up with Eve he is going to be flabbergasted with what she tells him. She reveals things that only Mallory and Waters could know and once she explains how she knows it will blow his mind.
Everything John took for granted is questioned and he becomes so obsessed with Eve that he is willing to give up his family to be with her. It is not until his family is threatened that he starts to put his life together. Things get worse when Eve's body is found strangled in a motel room and all the evidence points out to Waters.

Greg Iles enchanted me frome the start of this book, with excellent characters, an ultra strange plot and most of all eortic fantasies. As the book progressed sex was all that was given for at least 5 chapters. Malorry, and johnny time and time again Iles takes the plunge into describing the sex. Perhaps he should have remebered the plot a little better. once he conquers this barrier the book begins to expand once again. If only Iles could have kept tyhe feeling alive throughout the entierety of the book. This is not his best work, that goes to the stellar Mortal fear, but it survives. A good read but dont expect too much, you won't lose sleep over it.

This book was absolutely engrossing for about the first 3/4 of the way through. Then it seemed like the author just got tired of the story and wrapped it up as quickly as possible ignoring the plot-line up until then. I was so disappointed by this book -- in fact, I almost felt cheated!

I bought this book because Stephen King rated it so highly on the cover, and the synopsis made it seem that it would be in the lines of a Stephen King-esque kind of 'thriller'. It couldn't be further from the truth.
The novel was extremely predictable. There was no thrill. The eroticism seemed tacked-on, cheesy, pointless and excessive. There was no kick at the end, no zing to make you afraid for your own life, nothing.
I was not given any reason to care about a single character, except perhaps Annelise, for whom I felt extreme pity, and who seemed to be created only to give us false-heartwarming feelings for the main character. I was not drawn into their world, I was never made able to see through any single character's eyes.
Halfway through the novel I wanted to burn it, but only held back because I wanted to finish the book and see if it was going to end as blandly as it began, which it did. Besides which, I needed something to read until other books came in the mail.
I grew very tired of the shameless plugs for certain brand names, and I felt like the book was intended to be more of a glorified commercial crossed with a bad romance novel. I also found his attempts at describing where buildings were, where people were going, etc was pointless. "He took this street to that street which crossed over to the other street to this building" as if for some reason I would know where all those streets were, (not having ever heard of Natchez, LA or wherever). The descriptions reminded me of a High School writing assignment.
I do not intend to waste any money on another Greg Iles novel. I cannot afford to take that kind of risk.
