Don’t Wake Up - Liz Lawler
Reading Challenge Category: 0.98p from Amazon
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.
There is a tagline on Amazon that says “the most gripping first chapter you will ever read” well it most certainly was that and the most terrifying and horrific that I have ever read. I wasn’t sure whether to continue. I did though, and then I couldn’t put it down (the dates are deceiving as I started at 23.45 on the 27th May and finished at 00.45 on the 29th, so just over 24 hours). What I needed to know was whether she was making it up as halfway through the book I started to doubt her, as the horrible policewoman was making a convincing and believable case against her. I was suspecting everyone she came into contact with, but I didn't guess the ending at all! It was so cleverly written and a brilliant read!
