Sleepyhead (Tom Thorne Novels) - Mark Billingham
This is not your usual crime thriller as the killer is not actually trying to kill his victims and the women who die are his 'mistakes.' It's an interesting premise because by having a victim who survives with 'Locked In Syndrome' it allows the reader to experience the helplessness victims of crime feel when somebody else makes decisions about the worth and value of their lives. Alison's story is told with humour, courage and compassion which IMO lifted this story above the ordinary tale of cop versus killer. While not perfect, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read and I would recommend it to fans of flawed detectives and twisted serial killers who also are interested in the victims journey.

Buddy read with Anna :-).
