Sleepwalker, 23 August 2015
Author: a_baron from United Kingdom

This is a series that for some reason features a lot of Americans visiting or living in London. This time, an author with a taste for the macabre is here working on his next book. Dan Summers is a widower of five years, and he has brought his daughter with him. She is a fairly delicate young thing who has a propensity to sleepwalk. This isn't such a problem, but only if she doesn't end up clutching a knife, which appears to come with the territory.

It isn't the knife in her hand that causes her consternation though, rather the one in the back of the old man in her dream. Picking up a love interest, who just happens to be a psychology student, he goes in search of rational explanations while a not-so-rational one stumbles across her path, well, throws himself in front of her to be precise. He is someone who has been having the same dream, and he insists they have to solve the riddle by a direct approach.

So what exactly is going on here? There is an excellent twist at the climax of this far from probable tale, but if you ignore the silliness, you won't be disappointed.
