None Shall Sleep

A teenager's smile in a photograph can tell you many stories. It can remind you of the cause behind that unturned expression, have the captured day stay embed in your mind forever, and become the only thing you have left beyond their final hour.

None Shall Sleep was a haunting read that takes readers through a psychological profile behind the mind of serial killers, those who seek to stop them, and the lives of the families who are left in their wake. Ellie Marney's work is laced with an ominous sense of foreboding and mounting dread as teenagers Emma Lewis and Travis Bell are enlisted by the FBI to follow cold cases and interview teenage convicts like Simon Gutmunsson. This was a story that truly will keep you awake past the midnight hours and is perfect for readers who love thrillers and horror books.

The Silence of the Lambs meets Sadie in this riveting psychological thriller about two teenagers teaming up with the FBI to track down juvenile serial killers.

In 1982, two teenagers—serial killer survivor Emma Lewis and US Marshal candidate Travis Bell—are recruited by the FBI to interview convicted juvenile killers and provide insight and advice on cold cases. From the start, Emma and Travis develop a quick friendship, gaining information from juvenile murderers that even the FBI can't crack. But when the team is called in to give advice on an active case—a serial killer who exclusively hunts teenagers—things begin to unravel. Working against the clock, they must turn to one of the country's most notorious incarcerated murderers for help: teenage sociopath Simon Gutmunsson.

Despite Travis's objections, Emma becomes the conduit between Simon and the FBI team. But while Simon seems to be giving them the information they need to save lives, he's an expert manipulator playing a very long game...and he has his sights set on Emma.

Captivating, harrowing, and chilling, None Shall Sleep is an all-too-timely exploration of not only the monsters that live among us, but also the monsters that live inside us.
