Reviews for The Dead Wont Sleep:

’The Dead Won’t Sleep’ is a cracking crime thriller telling the story of tabloid journalist, Rosie Gilmour, unearthing corruption, greed and murder.

“Every single word rings true and, it is so cinematic, I’d be amazed if movie and TV companies aren’t falling over themselves to get it on the large or small screen. I’m glad to hear that this is the first in a series of books about [main character] Rosie [Gilmour] and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.” - Lorraine Kelly

this entire book had me totally and utterly enthralled from start to finish. It's already been recommended to all my friends and family, and now I'm recommending it to you lot too. - Best Crime Books

The cover suggests that the book is “As good as Martina Cole” but I’m not a huge fan of Cole and found this much more enjoyable.  Whilst this is not an easy read Gilmour is a great leading character, despite her flaws, and I look forward to reading more about her when To Tell the Truth is published in 2012. - Novel Heights

A tale of corruption, prostitution, gangland danger, drugs and paedophilia, this story echoes Anna's experiences as a young female journalist in Glasgow during the eighties and nineties. Drawing on her past life as a foundation for her new series, 'The Dead Won't Sleep' is a captivating tale. - RTE Book Review

 A compelling, concisely written page turner, with a feisty heroine. A natural for TV adaptation. - Irish Examiner
