The flawed but wonderfully human Rose stumbles from one disaster to the next; her career, her love life and even her house seem to be collapsing around her. So when her ice-maiden of a boss wants her moved to UCIT, she had no option but to go. Rose soon finds herself embroiled in a case where she becomes more that just the investigation officer.
I'm looking forward to finding out more about the UCIT team, especially Moony. And Rose's journey as she finally begins to accept herself and her abilities is enough to keep my interest - at least for the next one or two. That's what I like about character-driven stories: it doesn't matter if the plot is a bit dull, it's the characters that keep you engaged.
As for the plot... Well it was a bit different but ultimately I found it rather flat. Maybe it was the grimness of the surroundings, or the fact that the bad guy didn't give me a single shiver. It was like The Bill mixed up with a Pound Shop version of the X-Files, with no real sense of rising tension except right at the very end - which is a bit late to ratchet up the pressure imo.
But the characters saved it for me. I will definitely give the next couple a go and hope the author's skill with creating likeable characters will stretch to creating scary baddies and plots that keep you up all night.
Sleep Tight creeped me out in places, I’ll admit, and when the inexplicable happenings began, I couldn’t read it anywhere close to bedtime! Ms Green has created a fascinating blend of highly realistic police procedure with a verging on supernatural element that could put certain hard-nosed crime readers off, but for me made the novel memorable and compelling.
I much enjoyed the atmospheric details all through the novel and Rose is a character to root for with vulnerability alongside determination and strength of character. I loved the descriptions of the hidden police department especially, complete with that tea lady and her trolley… Will be keenly following the adventures of DC Gifford in book 2 of the series.
