Year 11, Book 100

100. The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian

Annalee Ahlberg is a sleepwalker and one night she goes missing in the middle of the night. Her daughter Lianna leaves college to return home to Vermont to help take care of her grief stricken father and 12-year old sister while trying to figure out what actually happened to her mother whose body has not been found even though she is suspected dead. When she meets a detective assigned to her mother’s case and discovers that he is a fellow sleepwalker who had a secret friendship with her mother she becomes even more intent on finding out the secrets of her mother’s past and how they might have led to her disappearance. I very much enjoyed this book and since it’s a Bohjalian book I was expecting there to be a sort of twisty revelation at the end, but I never managed to figure out what it was. I give it an 8 out of 10.
