The Sleepwalker

1 Mins read

Thrillingly dark Manchester noir from Joseph Knox. Detective Aidan Waits has been pulled off nightshift to guard a mass murderer, Martin Wick aka The Sleepwalker. Wick is terminally ill and has been transferred from Strangeways to die in hospital. Then a brutal and audacious attack leaves Wick dead, along with one police officer, and another fighting for his life. In his dying moments, Wick protested his innocence. In this third Waits novel, Knox ramps up the tension with bleak humour and dreamlike prose as the investigation and Waits’ own traumatic past draw him into an all-too present nightmare.
