A Look At “Sleepwalker” By Wendy Corsi Staub

We recently reviewed Nightwatcher from Wendi Corsi Staub (Read our review here) and although we enjoyed it, we gave it an average rating. However, the sequel to the book which was released recently and is titled "Sleepwalker" is a totally different story…The USA Today and New York Times bestseller Wendy Corsi Staub takes the quality of her plot to the next level and creates a fresh and absorbing tale of suspense.

A Brief Summary:

Ten years after the catastrophe (A serial Killer was loose in NYC in the first book Nightwatcher, and at the end he was captured) , 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.

Our Take:

This is a book which really has potential to be turned into a movie: Staub is a master of twists and turns and does a great job in this book to keep the reader guessing about the identity of the killer even towards the last pages of the book. This book which is a sequel to Nightwatcher is actually better than the first book…We loved it and we're sure you will enjoy it too.

Our Rating: 4.0
