Description

“If you like Mary Higgins Clark, you’ll love Wendy Corsi Staub!”
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson

Following on the heels of her gripping and sensational thriller, Nightwatcher, New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub takes suspense to a whole new level with Sleepwalker. The second book in the remarkable series that began in the chaos and horror of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, Staub’s Sleepwalker picks up the story ten years later—when Allison MacKenna, who barely escaped death on that terrible day at the hands of a serial killer, realizes that the nightmare is not over…and it may be closer to home than she ever imagined. This is top-tier suspense fiction that fans of Lisa Gardner and Lisa Jackson won’t be able to put down.


BOOK TRAILER


The Story Behind This Book
Ten years after the catastrophe, a great fallen city has risen again. Ten years after, a horror begins anew…or never truly ended. The nightmare of 9/11 is a distant but still painful memory for Allison Taylor MacKenna—now married to Mack and living in a quiet Westchester suburb. She has moved on with her life ten years after barely escaping death at the hands of New York’s Nightwatcher serial killer. The monster is dead, having recently committed suicide in his prison cell, but something is terribly wrong. Mack has started sleepwalking, with no recollection of where his nighttime excursions are taking him. And here, north of the city, more women are being savagely murdered, their bodies bearing the Nightwatcher’s unmistakable signature. Suddenly Allison must confront a devastating truth: her life is in jeopardy once again…and quite possibly from the man she trusts and loves.


Praise and Reviews

"SLEEPWALKER is Wendy Corsi Staub’s best novel to date. I’m going out on a limb here; Staub has written over 70 novels, and I am sure folks will be coming out of the woodwork to point out the error of my ways on this issue. Fair enough; all I ask is that you read SLEEPWALKER first and then get back to me. If it’s not her best, it’s certainly in the running for that title.

"I have to tell you that the plotting of SLEEPWALKER is brilliant. You will want to read it twice --- once to enjoy and a second time just to pick up on the clues you might have missed or ignored the first time through. Also, there is a revelation at the end that you will never see coming and that goes off like a hand grenade lobbed into a small room on a quiet summer afternoon. It will have you marking your calendar for January 29, 2013 when SHADOWKILLER, the last volume in the trilogy, is scheduled to be published.

"And in the event that you need further convincing, the opening pages of SHADOWKILLER are included at the end of SLEEPWALKER, as is the introduction to NIGHTWATCHER, in case you missed the opening installment. All of this, and more, makes SLEEPWALKER a book that you do not want to miss."

"Four stars. The second book of Staub's newest trilogy is a suspense-filled ride that keeps the shocks coming...in this installment, we are seeing the evolution of Allison and how past events have affected her. Her character feels very natural and realistic. As always, Staub leaves us wanting more and happy that there is another book to come in this trilogy."
