“A tale that’s harder to put down than a delicious bad habit.”
A killer has come to town. The victims are connected; each pointing to the next, as if in answer to the question: Who is The One?
Is it Peter Reynolds: mild-mannered office clerk pouring petrol through his neighbour’s letterbox in the middle of the night?
Is it Wayne Dolan: a man whose sexual fantasies about his neighbour spiral into dangerous obsession when he learns of her secret life as a dominatrix?
Or is it Gaz: leader of three friends who love nothing more than sex, weed and partying? All women are easy prey for his charms. All except Sally. And the one who doesn’t want him, is the one he has to have – whether she likes it or not.
Mick Nixon has to find the connection, because people are disappearing - and if he and Sally are ever going to share more than just lunch, he’d better hurry up, or they could be next.
A dark, funny, and at times horrific ride, One Among the Sleepless is a thriller set just below the surface of suburban existence. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll throw it through your neighbour’s window tied to a house brick!
A podcast mini-series sequel to One Among The Sleepless. It's Christmas time, three years after the events of the original novel, and Wayne Dolan has just decided what he wants to wake up to on Christmas morning.
