The Sleeping Doll Summary


The Sleeping Doll: Kathryn Dance Book 1 by Jeffery Deaver

Daniel Pell is a contemporary Charles Manson. A petty criminal with a history of antisocial behavior and obsession with controlling other people, he had a group of women living with him in a quasi cult in central California. Eight years ago, he and another man viciously slaughtered a family for no apparent reason, though the three women in his "Family" were absolved of any part in the deaths. Now, present day, Pell has escaped and Kathryn Dance, the famed interrogator and kinesic analyst (body language) and her team, must find out where he is and why he's staying near the prison he escaped from. She brings together the three women, now leading normal lives, to help her find out where Pell is and what he's up to. Pell, for his part, and a young woman he has manipulated to help him, tries to outguess the police and fulfill his mission, as he learns that Kathryn Dance is perhaps his most dangerous opponent. This is a typical cat and mouse Deaver novel, in which conflicts abound--finding the killer, as well as reconciling the emotions within Pell's three 'Family' members, which have simmered over the years. The 'Sleeping Doll' refers to the one surviving daughter of the original murder eight years ago--a nickname because she was asleep with her toys and not seen by the killer. Dance has to find her and see what she remembers about the night of the killings. Nothing is quite what it seems to be ...

The Sleeping Doll Reviews


Praise for Jeffery Deaver's other novels -- : 'There's no question...about Deaver's unexcelled ability to pull the wool over your eyes. When he describes a colorless, odorless glass of liquid as water, don't assume it is until somebody drinks it down - or maybe till an hour later.' -- Kirkus Reviews on THE TWELFTH CARD 'The best psychological thriller writer around' -- The Times 'The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world ... [Deaver] has produced a stunning series of bestsellers with unique characterisation, intelligent characters, beguiling plots and double-barrelled and sometimes triple-barrelled solutions.' -- Daily Telegraph 'This is a novel that will chill your blood on the warmest day of any summer holiday. Keep looking over your shoulder...' -- Independent on Sunday 'Jeffery Deaver is a master at crafting intricate crimes that are solved through guile, tenacity and sheer creative genius. And Lincoln Rhyme is one of a kind.' -- Harlan Coben
