“A marriage made in heaven, a murder made in hell.

Why kill the man you love?

Lizzy was struggling, everyone knew that.
He shouldn’t have done those things.
He shouldn’t have pushed her so hard.
And now, her children, her marriage, her hope – gone.
It was all her fault, she knew that, but was there a chance of redemption?

Lizzy Dyson’s on trial for her life. She knows she must pay for what she did, even if it wasn’t planned, but will the jury believe her?

A domestic noir, suspense-filled psychological drama, about heartbreak and betrayal, Sleep reveals what drives a woman to murder.”

Doesn’t that sound BRILLIANT?! Here are what others have been saying about the book:

“You’ll love Lizzy and you’ll hate her. You’ll want to hug her, you’ll want to slap her. But in the end, you’ll want to save her. An enthralling insight into one woman’s shattered life, and the strength she must summon to rebuild it.” Michael Wombat, Author of The Raven’s Wing & Fog.

“A compelling domestic drama where the tragic build-up to an awful crime unfolds through the eyes of a desperate woman.” – SJI Holliday, Author of The Lingering & Violet

“I thought the court scenes were fascinating, I enjoyed the way the witnesses were taken down by the prosecution and the defence and the way that each of the witnesses seemed to help Lizzy accept her actions. Regardless of whose side they were on. I particularly enjoyed the way Reedy’s true nature was revealed. ” – Steph’s Book Blog

“A well written, well paced novel for fans of psychological suspense.” – Liz Loves Books

“I loved the honesty with which the author portrayed the lives of all the characters, both the main ones and other friends and relatives. Each put their stamp on this story. I can wax eloquent about Boers’s book, but it ought to be read for its genuineness and commitment to her story.” – Shalini’s Books & Reviews

The Killer You Know with S.R. Masters: Day Five (@SRMastersAuthor) @TheCrimeVault

35483257.jpg“I’ll murder three strangers. And you’ll know it was me. That way we’ll all be connected. Always.

When Will jokes about becoming a serial killer, his friends just laugh it off. But Adeline can’t help but feel there’s something more sinister lurking behind his words.

Fifteen years later, Adeline returns to Blythe for a reunion of the old gang – except Will doesn’t show up. Reminiscing about old times, they look up the details of his supposed murder spree. But the mood soon changes when they discover two recent deaths that match.

As the group attempt to track Will down, they realise that he is playing a sinister game that harks back to one they used to play as kids. Only this time there are lives at stake…

I am absolutely delighted to be the fifth and final stop on the hunt for The Killer You Know this week.  If you’ve been following proceedings since Monday you will know that today is the day to make your deductions and choose your killer friend.  Make sure you tweet the name of your suspect and your reasons for choosing them using the hashtag #TheKillerYouKnow to be in with a chance of winning a copy of the book!

Four possible killers have been paraded before you and today I offer the fifth.  Before I introduce Will, here’s a recap of this week’s posts:

Monday – Dave at espresso coco
Tuesday – Liz at Liz Loves Books
Wednesday – Gordon at Grab This Book
Thursday – Steph at Steph’s Book Blog

Personally, I haven’t the foggiest who the killer friend is which is why I’m leaving the sleuthing to you!

Let’s add our fifth and final friend to the mix and find out more about Will….

Sure, the last time the gang all saw Will he told them all he’d be a serial killer when he was older. But that was just classic Will. He was always saying funny stuff like that. Funny stuff that was often more just, well, creepy than funny—but always weird. But then Will comes from a funny family, one that’s seen its own share of tragedies down the years. So yeah, maybe he was misunderstood. And maybe always being seen as the weirdo actually made him that way? And perhaps his resentment about that is why he hasn’t shown up to the reunion. Why he’s vanished from social media entirely and left no trace of himself. And yet, why does it still feel like Will has come? Even though he’s not there bodily, why does it feel so much like… he’s watching them all.

Oooh, I actually like the sound of creepy Will.  Sounds like my kinda guy!  What do you think, is Will the killer?

Get tweeting folks.  Remember to include your suspect’s name, your reasons for choosing them and the hashtag #TheKillerYouKnow.  Good luck. (I’m still totally clueless, by the way…)
