The first of a two part action adventure series for teens. Definitely for teens and not younger children as there is violence and bloodshed. The plot is set up so that it is actually believable that a teenage boy is a government trained assassin, which I rarely find. You will want to have Sleeper Agenda on hand so that you can read it immediately after this one. A fun thrill ride for teens and adults alike.

Welcome to the world of Tom Lovett. At sixteen, Tom is homeschooled, but not for the reasons that many students are. No, Tom is homeschooled because his parents don't believe that he can function in a normal high school. Because Tom has narcolepsy, a disease that makes him fall asleep at any moment, and sometimes for days at a time. These attacks, as he calls them, haven't happened in over two weeks, and he's determined to get his parents to let him attend a public school. But when he also mentions that he's stopped taking his medication that's supposed to help control his narcoleptic attacks, all hell breaks loose.
What's worse than losing days, though, is the very real dreams he's started to have about murder. More specifically, murders he's committing. At first Tom believes that they're just dreams, very real hallucinations made up by his miswired brain, tricks that are being played on him. Then Tom finds out that he's not really going crazy. Even worse, he really has committed murder--several times, in fact, since he's a trained assassin.
It seems that his narcolepsy isn't just a disease he was born with, but a carefully orchestrated part of a plot to keep his sleeping self away from his waking self. Suddenly the life he thought was looking up, especially since Madison Fitzgerald moved in next door, is going downhill fast. Unable to believe that he's two distinct personalities living in the same body, Tom is determined to prove his dreams are wrong. What happens instead, though, is a long descent into murder, destruction, and mayhem.
Mr. Sniegoski has taken a totally original concept and turned it into an action-packed story that will have you turning pages long into the night. Once you realize exactly who and what Tom is, you can't help but be equally horrified and interested in this young man. As Madison and her family also become targets for Tom's clandestine organization, as Tom learns that his parents aren't his parents but instead handlers, and as he becomes determined to break free from his other identity once and for all, the story takes on mythic proportions. Once you read SLEEPER CODE, you'll be dying to read SLEEPER AGENDA, the second book in the THE SLEEPER CONSPIRACY. This is definitely a book for all action-adventure lovers!
Teenager Tom Lovett suffers from a rare form of narcolepsy that can knock him out for days at a time. At least, this is what his parents and doctors have always told him. But Toms about to make a shocking discovery: Hes actually a sleeper assassin. His narcoleptic "fits" are cover for his horrific missions. In fact, his entire life has been a lie. The truth is, Tom shares a body with Tyler Garrett, a separate personality who has committed coldblooded murder without a second thought. Now, Tom is on a mission to take down the evil agency that created him. But can he also fight the evil within himself? In the tradition of The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, Sleeper Code and Sleeper Agenda are a two-part white-knuckle thrill ride that will keep readers riveted to the very last page.
