Romy Hausmann made her English debut with the twisty, suspenseful, and psychologically clever story of a woman who disappeared without a trace in DEAR CHILD.

Now, SLEEPLESS brings all the mind-bending and page-turning thrills that had readers hooked with the story of a woman who gets dragged into a bizarre game in which she is both the perfect victim and the perfect murderer.


“Hausmann’s ominous psychological suspense tale masterfully uses restraint, inserting a continual flow of small but significant clues to create tension and a heavy tone. The multidimensional characters will keep readers questioning what they know. For fans of Fiona Barton and Gillian Flynn.”–Library Journal
