The original title of the book: Praying for Sleep


Michael Hrubek, a young schizophrenic, has escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane. And he's making his way towards Lis Atcheson, the teacher who testified at his trial.

Four people are racing to intercept him before he finds her. His psychiatrist; the hospital director; a professional tracker. And Lis's husband, who plans to stop Hrubek before the madman reaches his wife.

But Michael's mind - with its delusions of murder and betrayal - is crystal clear about one thing. He knows Lis better than she knows herself. And he carries with him a monstrous secret that will tear apart many lives in the course of one horrifying night...

    Another thriller from a superb writer. I could not even guess at the ending.

    A good read although I DoD struggle to finish it not like other deaver books

    Having been a fan of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series, I looked forward to reading this stand-alone thriller expecting the fast-paced, roller-coaster ride of thrills and suspense I had come to expect from his other works. How wrong could I have been?This is tedium at it's utmost. With a repetitive, predictable storyline, tedious plot which has been done a hundred or more times before and two-dimensional characters, this rapidly became a bore-fest and a chore to even pick up. In fact, the characters were so dull, I ended up praying that escaped schizophrenic psychopath, Michael Hrubrek would actually catch up with his "victim" Lis and actually kill her for being so darn dull and irritating.I actually gave up on this book a third of the way through and I challenge anyone to make it all the way without giving up at least once. If you want to read a book about two women sand-bagging by a rising river and taping up a greenhouse whilst every page gives a weather report about the forth-coming storm, please give this book a go. But that's about all there is to this story and there are far better books out there.

    The first chapter was excellent - and the characters were believable and well written. There was a wonderful dark atmosphere to the book right from the start and I was looking forward to a gripping read.However, the gripping read never materialised. I agree with earlier reviewers that the book would have benefited from some very aggressive editing. It really lacked pace - the story just went on and on and on and it took an effort to keep going to the end. And I'm sorry, but the end was entirely predictable - signposted very early on.

    Having already read 'A Maiden's Grave' and seen 'The Bone Collector' I already knew that Jeffery Deaver had a great story-telling style. The twists at the end of his books make them worth reading!'Praying for Sleep' is probably not as fast-paced as some other crime-thrillers I have read, but nonetheless, it is a really good book. I stuck with it and by the last few chapters I had changed my mind about the entire book! Jeffery Deaver's portrayal of the Hrubeck (one of the main character's) is great. You feel sorry for him one moment, then think he's a cold blooded killer! The author doesn't go into unnecessary details abouts scenery or characters' pasts, everything he writes has a purpose, which is revealed at the end.If you've already read a Jeffery Deaver novel, or are thinking of reading one, I would definately recommend this book to you!
