  • Brilliant!

    This is my first novel by bestseller author Joseph Knox. The Sleepwalker sees the return of DC Aidan Waits and I have to say I was completely and thoroughly hooked right from the start, even though have yet to read Sirens (book #1) and The Smiling Man (book #2). In this third book set in Manchester, Aidan and his partner, DI Peter 'Sutty' Sutcliffe has been assigned to protect the terminally ill serial killer, labelled 'The Sleepwalker', Martin Wick, in hospital, and tasked with trying to ascertain the location of the body of one of his victims. Wick was convicted of killing a mother and her three children several decades ago, but he has never revealed the location of one of the children he murdered. Now, Wick has asked to speak to Sutty. After becoming aware that someone has breached security, an anxious Aidan returns with Sutty, only to find themselves in the middle of an absolute pandemonium, resulting in Wick and an armed police guard dead, and Sutty in intensive care with serious burns. Joseph Knox’s latest novel follows a very intriguing, multi-layered story. With murder, blackmail, violence and many suspects that befit a high calibre crime thriller such as this one, I was gripped by the perfect plotting and pacing. The reader learns more about protagonist Aidan, whose life is complicated as he struggles with alcoholism, drug abuse and an assortment of mental health issues, as well as hoping he can hold onto his job. The icing on the cake is that he has largely unresolved family problems and another police employee is blackmailing him. Joseph Knox's writing-style is impressive and noteworthy and evidently the author is a gifted storyteller who can provide readers with thrills, sophistication and a story packed with substance. I like the way the story evolved and there is a good amount of humour in there, too. A very highly recommended five star read that will be of interest to many readers. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Random House UK via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
