Sleepyhead by Mark Billingham

This book is about catching a person who unintentionally murders people instead of putting them in 'locked-in' syndrome, where they can think but are paralysed. Allison was a true brave soul who tried to communicate and the reader can really relate to her as the only living victim. I also felt the detective was arrogant and there seemed to be several parts of the story not fully explained. We got a snippet of his past but were left hanging and wondering about the rest. ****SPOILER**** Also as Thorne had saved Anne's daughter and herself why was the ending with regards to her and Thorne so unsatisfactory. The reader does not get the feeling they are really involved romantically. Why the murderer was so concerned with Thorne is an absolute mystery. I too guessed the murderer. Not a very satisfying mystery but the concept is interesting
