He would do anything to remember. And even more to forget.
Tormented by nightmares of a screaming woman, Nico Jakes opens his eyes to an unfamiliar world.
Forced into hiding by a global war, a society has made its home underground. Suffering from psychological trauma, Nico learns that his lost memories hold the key to the survival of the entire community. Frustrated, confused, and under the watchful eye of his protective brother, Nico submits to an unconventional drug treatment to unearth a crucial secret, before an escaped traitor can exploit it.
But the descent into his mind also opens the flood gates to Nico’s past, bringing back forgotten lovers, enemies, and tragedy. With dreams warped by drugs and memories tainted by lies, Nico soon realises that he cannot trust anything, not even himself. Let Me Sleep is a dark, fractured psychological thriller, exploring identity, relationships, and the darker side of human nature when forced into survival. About the author Residing in Cheshire with (near) her partner, twin boys (now twin men), and four cats, Laura is a medical editor by trade, as well as a trained dancer, musician, and sometime artist.
Laura graduated from Keele University in 2012 with a somewhat strange dual honours degree combination of English and human biology. An avid and occasionally lucid dreamer, Laura is fascinated by the power of the unconscious mind and Freudian interpretation of dreams.
Many years ago, Laura had a dream, which prompted a thought, which led to an idea, which slowly formed into a plot over a summer of relabelling books in a library. And so, she became a writer, sixteen years after her teacher suggested it.
Let Me Sleep is Laura’s debut novel.
