She’s killed before. Can she do it again?
Natalie Anders has a past no one knows about. Filled with regret, and wanting a new life, she does her best to keep to herself.
But then she meets Kyle Detcher. He dazzles her with charm and promises her the world, and she throws herself in with heart, body and soul.
When tragedy forces them closer, cracks quickly start to appear in the relationship. He chips away at her self-confidence, isolates her from her normal life, and tries to turn her into something she’s not.
Kyle isn’t the man he pretended to be, and, to her horror, he reveals his trump card.
The man she’s committed her life to might just be a monster.
And he’s coming for her next.
Get the second book in this heart-racing psychological thriller series from NY Times and USA Today bestselling author M A Comley, and M K Farrar.
This is the second book in the Crime After Crime series but even though you will want to read the first book after this one, you don’t actually have to have read it before reading Down To Sleep.
Natalie is a woman who has to live with demons from an event that happened in her past. We get to learn very early on what that demon is, which if anything, endeared her character to me more. She is drifting through life until she bumps into Kyle who on first appearances, looks like he is going to improve her life for the better.
I really felt like Natalie had landed on her feet when she meets Kyle. There is an obvious chemistry between them both which was quite warming to start with and how he takes it upon himself to be protector and look after her. Sadly it doesn’t last long.
This is one of those stories that to a certain extent you know which direction it is going to go into when we start to see Kyle’s darker side. In my head I was shouting and urging Natalie to get as far away as possible but as in real life, these things arn’t always as straight forward and goes to show how manipulative some people can be.
Down To Sleep was a compulsive story that wouldn’t let me go. I started and finished it in the same day as the story line had me hooked and the authors didn’t disappoint in messing with my head. This is a great read with a deliciously dark character that makes it even more sinister.
My thanks to the authors for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
