“Great mystery writers, like great magicians, have the ability to hide the truth that’s right before your eyes. Best-selling novelist Chris Bohjalian is at the full power of his literary legerdemain in his newest book, The Sleepwalker… Bohjalian teases and tantalizes the reader… Masterful plotting evokes a magician who distracts his audience to look this way, not that way. The ending will have the reader rereading for missed clues. The Sleepwalker is Bohjalian at his best: a creepily compelling topic and an illusionist’s skill at tightening the tension. This is a novel worth losing sleep over.” —Patty Rhule, USA Today
“Sex, secrets and the mysteries of sleep: These are the provocative ingredients in Chris Bohjalian’s spooky thriller The Sleepwalker. It’s a dark, Hitchcockian novel… Trust me, you will not be able to stop thinking about it days after you finish reading this book.” —Carol Memmott, The Washington Post
“After a chronic sleepwalker goes missing, the general consensus is accidental death. But nothing is what it seems in this gripping mystery.” —Cosmopolitan
“Literary and compelling, a combination so rare I’m tempted to apply for federal intervention. . . I hesitate to say more, because to know too much may spoil the fun of discovery. Rest assured the denouement is perfect. This is Bohjalian at his very best.” —Curt Shleier, The Seattle Times
“Sleepwalking inspires a hard-to-put-down story that also mixes sex and a mystery in a polished package… Bohjalian is a gifted writer…[he] weaves in hints, a red herring or two and a backstory that will leave readers with competing theories about who Annalee was and how that might have determined her fate… Bohjalian is on top of his already stellar game with The Sleepwalker.” —Amanda St. Amand, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“A perfectly crafted surprise ending… Bohjalian succeeds in making us accomplices in a dark world we never knew existed.” —Laura Patten, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
 “Bohjalian savors the experience of getting behind his characters’ masks, deep into their psyches… The Sleepwalker is one of his most skillfully plotted… Masterful…an increasingly gripping tale layered with grave moral dilemmas.” — Frank O. Smith, The Portland Press Herald
“It takes unexpected answers to solve this mystery. Bohjalian’s latest will captivate readers who crave an edge-of-your-seat page-turner they can’t put down.” —Susan Carr, Library Journal (Starred Review)

“This stylish fusion of mystery and domestic thriller from Bohjalian explores the aftermath of the inexplicable disappearance of a woman prone to sleepwalking… Powered by brilliantly rendered characters, an intriguing topic (parasomnia), and a darkly lyrical narrative that captures the melancholic tone of autumn in New England perfectly.” —Publishers Weekly
“One night when her professor husband is out of town, and while her teenage daughters sleep in their rooms, Annalee Ahlberg walks out her front door and heads toward the river. She is never seen again… Bohjalian raises essential questions of identity and heredity, sexuality and desire, bringing the Ahlberg family conundrum into focus with a didn’t-see-that-one-coming powerhouse ending.” —Carol Haggas, Booklist
“Bohjalian… never writes the same book twice… His new novel is suspense with a twist.” —Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
The Sleepwalker is more than a mystery: it’s a beautiful, wrenching novel of family secrets and the enigmas that link husbands and wives and lovers. And then that ending? Devastating and perfect.” —Harlan Coben

“In the midst of its compelling mystery, Bohjalian introduces big questions about the nature of family, about heredity and sexuality and rationality. Its ever-quickening pace leads to fascinating reveals — and while you might see some of them coming, you won’t see them all…Rest assured that The Sleepwalker will keep you up at night.” —Allen Adams, The Maine Edge
