A pitch-black psychological thriller for fans of Before I Let You In by Jenny Blackhurst and The Lie by C.L. Taylor.

Alex Taylor wakes up tied to an operating table. The man who stands over her isn't a doctor.

The choice he forces her to make is utterly unspeakable.

But when Alex re-awakens, she's unharmed - and no one believes her horrifying story. Ostracised by her colleagues, her family and her partner, she begins to wonder if she really is losing her mind.

And then she meets the next victim.

So compulsive you can't stop reading.

So chilling you won't stop talking about it.

Don't Wake Up is a dark, gripping psychological thriller with a horrifying premise and a stinging twist . . .

    Alex Taylor is a doctor in a busy accident and emergency department, she has just finished her shift and has been promised Champagne and flowers from her gorgeous boyfriend Patrick and if she has read him right she thinks a proposal of marriage is on the cards dressed for the occasion she is on her way to meet him the in the hospital car park. So when she wakes up she knows she's in hospital as she can hear the equipment working around her, she feels groggy and her body cant move when she looks down she realises its her who's linked up to the equipment. She drifts back off to sleep and when she reawakens she is with her work colleagues Caroline keeps Alex calm when she insists she has been abducted and been raped she wants all the tests to make sure she has not contracted and diseases from her abductor. Head doctor Caroline and her best friend Fiona are bewildered there are no signs anything has happened to Alex they tell her Patrick and a security man found her not far from the exit she'd left by. Her clothes were all in tact she had no marks on her, she does have a bump on the back of her head they tell her maybe the bump is confusing memories of an incident that had happened to her just over a year before. As time passes things happen around Alex making it look as if she is losing her mind. Is she losing her mind or is someone setting her up? Alex doesn't know who to trust anymore her boyfriend her friends her work colleagues all think she having a breakdown. I loved this book I have never suspected so many people in this one novel of crimes. Liz Lawler has written a blinder of a book keeps you guessed not right up to the end. It's a 5 star from me.

    I'm currently on holiday in the Maldives and have not been able to put this book down once!! So full of twists that I completely did not see coming! Had me gripped from the very beginning!! Excellent read, enjoyed it thoroughly. No idea what the negative reviews are all about. Even if the plot is not your thing this has been excellently written and structured! 5 stars from me.
