Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to hold on to the people you love? When Olivia Brookes calls the police to report that her husband and children are missing, she believes she will never see them again. She has reason to fear the worst; this isn’t the first tragedy that Olivia has experienced. Now, two years later, Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas is called in to investigate this family again, but this time it’s Olivia who has disappeared. All the evidence suggests that she was in the family home that morning. But her car is in the garage, and her purse is in her handbag - on the kitchen table. The police want to issue an appeal, but for some reason every single picture of this family has been removed from albums, from phones, from computers. And then they find the blood…. Has the past caught up with Olivia? Sleep tight - if you can. You never know who’s watching.

    "Sleep Tight - Rachel Abbott"
    Any additional comments?

    I love audiobooks - they're great for taking on the go with you and for me - when I can't sleep. Mysteries and suspense novels are my fave (I have a fondness for British authors) and I'm always happy to discover new authors. Rachel Abbott is a new to me author and one I would absolutely listen to again. Sleep Tight is the one I chose to start with.

    Olivia Brookes's children are the most important thing in her life. When she comes home one day to find them - and her husband missing - she fears the worst. Tragedy is not a stranger to Olivia. DCI Tom Douglas is called in. Thankfully they are located - and no harm done. Or is it? Two years later DCI Douglas is called in again - this time to investigate the disappearance of Olivia and her children. But, this time there may not be such a happy outcome. Olivia has left her purse, the car is in the garage and oddly enough, all the pictures of the family have been destroyed.

    Excellent premise and great plotting! I had my suspicions as to what had happened, but I'm happy to say I wasn't completely right. I love twisty, turny who's telling the truth and who's lying books. Abbot has penned a good one. And I enjoyed this one all more I think because I listened to it.

    Reader's voices and interpretations of a novelist's work can make or break a story for a listener. Sleep Tight employs two readers - Melody Grove and Andrew Wincott. Both narrators have voices that are clear, pleasant and easy to understand (both are British). I thought the voices - Grove's quieter and Wincott's more powerful - suited the mental images I created for the characters. Some readers have the ability to create numerous voice for all the characters, but I quite enjoy multiple cast members. I liked the dual narrative - it made me feel like I am more involved in the story and the investigation, rather than just an observer.

    I thought Sleep Tight was a really good listen.

    "absolutely loved the story. kept me on my toes."

    Loved it. very on the edge of your seat who dunnit. kept me guessing the whole way through.
    had to get use to the British accents though. can't wait to read the next one.
    give this author a try I did and I'm glad I did. I'm a truck driver and I listen to books while I drive in the wee hours of the night till morning. So I'm really glad I found a new author to listen to.

    "Awesome Read. (Sleep Tight)"

    Well written, well read. This story is eerily all to possible and THAT is what makes it scary. How well do we ever know someone? Even our lover, our spouse? What are you willing to do for your children? to save them, you MUST save yourself.

    "Well writen"

    The story of a woman trapped in a marriage by a stalker trying to keep her children safe. Or is she? The heroine appears weak throughout the story but she's not and the plot takes many twists and turns that keep you listening/reading.

    "Performance"

    Couldn't get over the male voice for this book. He made everyone sound like a slime ball, psychopath. Totally overdone and not fitting with the characters.

    "obsessed love"

    I truly enjoyed this book...setting the theme, tones, and scenes were excellent...it pulled me in as if I were there but watching through a camera lens instead of being part of the scene that is because it seemed distanced although a great read.

    "Eh..."

    Kind of lost me from one point on. Just stopped caring about the "twist" and predictable plot. It was just okay.
