I typically have the books all figured out by the first few chapters but this one had me guessing. Orginal plot and quite differnt.
However...a lot of explicit sex, really couldn't do my normal skip through it b/c I would miss something that happened soon after. That is the reason I willing to part with this author's books and the only reason that I couldn't give it 5 stars ... a little too much graphic sex. Sometimes NOT knowing every detail is better.
Amazing, riveting, haunting, and so much more. I was literally unable to put this book down until I finished the very last page. It's one of those novels you sit and ponder for hours after you've finished reading.
A happily married man encounters a beautiful stranger. However, there is one problem: the "stranger" happens to know intimate details that only he and his dead ex-girlfriend know. Is it her, back from the dead? Is he ready to ruin his family for her?
I thought this book was great. Quite chilling and shocking. Amazing how quickly the main character begins an unhealthy obsession with this woman. A great read!
A pretty good story with something for everyone. John Waters is pursued and his family put at risk by an obsessed lover from his past. The twist? His lover died 10 years ago! Greg Iles spins an interesting and almost credible tale of seduction, betrayal, murder and insanity. Reminded me of "Fatal Attraction" due to the similar plot, but the circumstances were different enough to keep me engaged and reading. The ending was a bit too tidy for me. An entertaining read that you might want to take on a business trip as it won't nag at you during the day, but will give you something to distract you in the evening before bed.
This book was incredible. It grabbed you straight from the beginning and you literally hate to put it down. Honestly, this is the first book of this kind that I didn't end up figuring it all out before the end. I was completely in the dark and reading into the wee hours of the morning because I could not put this book down! GREAT!!!
I loved the book. It is different. It is thrilling, a real page-turner. The characters are likeable.
The author gets an A+ for imagination.
We again get to "hang out" with some of the characters whom we met in previous Iles books.
Try it; you'll like it.

Suddenly he is face-to-face with a memmory from his past - of an obsession that he thought he had escaped. One that plunges him into the darkest depths of love and passion....
Sleep No More was my first Greg Iles book and I was very impressed but the plot and suggest it to anyone that likes mysteries and twists! The southern accent is a wonderful touch! The second one was Dead Sleep and I would suggest that also. I will definitley look for more of his books!
Eve Sumner has an uncanny resemblance to a long-dead woman with whom John Waters was once obsessively in love. The successful Mississippi oilman's college affair with Mallory Candler ended long before she was killed, but the mysterious Eve knows things about that affair that only Mallory could have known. That's more than a coincidence, since Eve is actually Mallory's reincarnationor, at least, she's the corporeal body into which Mallory's restless soul seems to have migrated...
John Waters is a successful businessman and a happy family man - but his life comes crashing down around him with one word from a beautiful stranger: "Soon." Suddenly he is face-to-face with a memory from his past - of an obsession that he thought he had escaped. One that plunges him into the darkest depths of love and passion.
A successful businessman who is happily married meets a a beautiful woman who whispers the word "Soon". He is jarred by the memory of an obsession he thought he had forgotten, one that plunges him into the darkest depths of love and passion. Sleep No More is somewhat erotic and full of guilt, obsession and passion. An excellent book that I highly recommend.
When John Waters, a successful businessman, meets the spitting image of his dead college sweetheart, he is a little confused. When this new woman, Eve Summer, begins to intrude on his marriage, he is more than a little concerned. And when Eve reveals things that only his ex knew, John is scared....
A mysterious thriller and an original suspense novel. One or two villians and a bit of the occult make this story a good choice to fill in those long hours on the road or relaxing your eyes while listening to the story unfold. Exciting and interesting premise involving an old love and a family divided by loss.
