The Sleeping and the Dead

The Sleeping and the Dead is a tense psychological crime thriller from CWA Gold Dagger award-winning writer, Ann Cleeves.

Detective Peter Porteous is called to Cranwell Lake where the body of a teenager has been discovered. After trawling through the missing persons files, he deduces that the corpse is Michael Grey, an enigmatic and secretive young man who was reported missing by his foster parents in 1972.

For country prison officer Hannah Morton it is the shock of her life. Michael had been her boyfriend, and she had been with him the night he disappeared. The news report that a body has been found brings back dreaded and long buried memories from her past . . .

Ann Cleeves
A drought has caused the level of Cranwell Lake to drop. Drop further that it ever has since 1972. At the end of a row of staithes near the beach, a body floats just beneath the surface. For Hannah Morton it is a return to her teenage years. For detectives Porteous and Stout it is the start of a trawl through the missing persons files in search of an identity - only to discover that Michael Gray is not who he seemed... After a slow start the plot gradually gains pace, switching between Hannah's memories, the police investigation and a fresh murder case. Ann Cleeves leaves the reader guessing till the end - a surprise finish unhinted at during the preceding pages. A good, solid English detective novel with the added bonus of Cleeve's finely drawn, often troubled, main players. - Lucy Watson
