Book Description

With her national bestselling debut, Hush, Anne Frasier joined the ranks of Tami Hoag, Lisa Gardner, and Kay Hooper as a strong new voice in blockbuster suspense fiction. Now she pits a female FBI profiler against a serial killer whose violent history has ties to her own tragic past.

Wake up, little darling. Do you like what you see?


He's looking for the perfect woman. Someone who won't disappoint him, like so many have before. Someone who'll love him. Someone who won't have to die for her mistakes. Give up, little darling. FBI agent Mary Cantrell has been called to Minneapolis to hunt down a killer. It's shaking her to the core, and reviving dreadful memories. Years ago, her best friend was murdered. Now the man convicted of the crime, Gavin Hitchcock, is free -- and Mary's own sister Gillian, a local cop, has befriended him. No one can hear you scream but me. As each clue leads them closer to Hitchcock, Mary and Gillian set themselves up as the perfect target -- and the perfect trap. Unless Mary's own past is blinding her to an unimaginable truth....and plunging her into a waking nightmare.



Publishers Weekly
Women who dye their hair blonde may think twice before heading to the salon after reading Frasier's (Hush) enthralling thriller about a serial killer who plucks the eyes out of his young blonde victims and grafts rose stems onto their fingers-all in an effort to create the perfect woman. Minneapolis FBI agent Mary Cantrell has a personal interest in the latest string of murders taking place in her hometown. The killer may very well be an old high school classmate named Gavin Hitchcock, who was convicted of raping and murdering her best friend and then released after serving nine years in prison. But when the abductions persist even after Gavin is returned to custody, Mary's sister, Gillian, a local cop who's befriended Gavin and believes him to be innocent, goes undercover to trap the real killer. Some vivid autopsy scenes may turn the stomachs of the squeamish, but there's a lot more to this clever intrigue than graphic police procedures. Indeed, one of Frasier's many strengths is her ability create characters and relationships that are as compelling as the mystery itself. From the estranged Cantrell sisters and their broad-minded mother to Mary's handsome partner and the troubled Gavin, Frasier's well-rounded characters will linger with readers long after the killer is caught.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taut psychological suspense! November 4, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading Anne Frasier's first suspense thriller, 'Hush', I knew it would not be my last. 'Sleep Tight' has made me a true fan. This taut psychological thriller combines well crafted characters, edge of your seat suspense, subtle romance and intelligent plotting.
FBI agent Mary Cantrell returns home to investigate the abduction and murder of two young women. There with the help of her friend and partner, Anthony Spence, she must find a killer and face her own demons. Back in her childhood home living with with her mother and working with her younger sister,Gillian, now a law enforcement officer herself, Mary must finally let go of the past in order to solve these hideous crimes.
This story works on many levels. Frasier paints a strong psychological portrait of Mary, a woman haunted by the murder of her friend and hurt by the betrayal of her sister. Mary's sister Gillian strives to assuage her self imposed guilt by bringing justice to others at any risk. Since Mary's recent gunshot wound while attempting to protect her partner, Anthony is consumed by fears for Mary's safety and by the realization that he cares for he much more than he'll admit. Frasier brings the past and the present together to tell a tale of betrayal and redemption that is fascinating and compelling. There is no doubt that I will continue to read anything that Anne Frasier writes.

your seat read this book! The way Anne Frasier writes reminds me of Lisa Gardner. And that's a good thing. This book will keep you up all night trying to finish it.
"Sleep Tight" is about an FBI agent named Mary Cantrell and her reluctant return home to Minneaplois. The reason for this is because When Mary was younger she found her best friends body in the woods. It also doesn't help that her younger sister who is a local cop, has befriend the guy (Gavin) convicted of killing her best friend. She comes home to help out on a case where a guy is kidnapping young blond blue-eyed girls and later killing them. Each clue ends up leading them to Gavin. But is everything really as it seems? A must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Page Turner October 6, 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my first Anne Frasier "reading" and I must say I'm impressed. If your looking for a very easy read and a book that will keep you engrossed, Sleep Tight is the answer. A very engaging book that will keep most any reader interested. She doesn't get bogged down with a lot of technical jargon (police or ME) -- just good characters and a pretty decent plot. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good vacation/commuter read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Anne Frasier triumph May 23, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'll confess, I'm a fan. I loved "Hush" and waited anxiously for "Sleep Tight" to come out. The author weaves a fascinating story of relationships and mystery, along with some pretty darn scary moments with a very twisted murderer. This isn't a run of the mill story with ordinary characters. Well before the end of the book, the characters become real people and the situations become possibilities. You won't want to put it down until it's finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars keep-em coming April 2, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book the first day it hit the stands. Started reading at 10am finished eight hours later. Could not put it down. My family had to be satisfied with take-out. The plot was exciting, the characters unpredictable, the ending explosive! I also read her 1st book "Hush" and was equally sastisfied. Keep-em coming Anne, I will by all by her name alone, not bothering to read the preface. An author bound for top 10 ratings!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good But... October 7, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In felt that this story was building up to a great big finally and boom there it was...the end and...I don't know... I felt let down. This was really a fast paced read up until the end and without giving up the ending I was left scratching my head as to how they figured it out and hello how they came about it. Still this was an okay read... certainly not one to rush out and buy brand new but one that is worth picking up second hand or from the library. Don't expect Lisa Gardner or Linda Howard but do keep an open mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blonde High School Girls Beware March 25, 2006
By dessert
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was able to solve the sub-plot murder but could not nail the murderer for the major plot. My score 1 out of 2, not bad. This does not mean that the story lacks depth of intrigue and plot turning angles to stall you. It is not a dead give away.

The writing is incredible as it lifts you away breathlessly with a seamless flow from how the murderer thinks to how FBI detective, Mary, conducts a methodical analysis of the murderer as she is a trained behavioral scientist to scenes of cosy family atmoshphere that Mary's mother Blythe has created for her two daughters. Past and present are cleverly interwined with no abrupt beginnings or endings to jolt you out of the blue.

Family tensions also stews between Mary & her sister, Gillian, due to an unresolved murder of Mary's high school friend, Fiona that happened more than ten years ago. Romantic tension for Mary comes in the form of her FBI partner, Anthony.

Somehow the resolution for the main plot's murder was rather contrived. I thought the ending would be more in step with what happened to the rest of the victims rather than making an exception.

A very good read that scores very high in the crime thriller category!
