When promising young psychiatrist James Richardson is offered the job opportunity of a lifetime by Dr. Hugh Maitland, he is thrilled. His task is to manage a controversial therapy in which disturbed patients are kept asleep for months. But Richardson begins to sense something uncanny about the patients. Why is Maitland unwilling to discuss their past lives? Why is the trainee nurse so on edge when she spends nights alone with them? And what can it mean when all the sleepers start dreaming at the same time? Richardson finds himself questioning everything he knows as he attempts to uncover the shocking secrets of the sleep room.

Review:

Praise for the Max Liebermann mystery series:

Engrossing. Immensely satisfying.

A captivating historical series.

If you're looking for the best in popular fiction, Tallis is well worth seeking out.

Engrossing. Immensely satisfying. "

Praise for the Max Liebermann mystery series: "

A captivating historical series. "

If you re looking for the best in popular fiction, Tallis is well worth seeking out."

Tallis neatly blends mystery and history. Fans of Caleb Carr will feel right at home.

A murder mystery of great intelligence. A fascinating portrait of one of the most vibrant yet sinister series of fin-de-siecle Europe.

Cleve and spooky. For Tallis, the darker recesses of the mind hold monsters enough. The novel is an elegantly constructed psychiatric Gothic, all spires and gargoyles and ghostly echoes -- the sort of vast, dread edifice we sometimes build around ourselves when the lights go out.

Book Description:

From the Doctor of Fear, comes the horror story that everyone is dreaming about

Tallis comes his latest tale of psychological suspense--and a brilliant reinvention of the ghost story. When promising young psychiatrist James Richardson is offered the job opportunity of a lifetime by the charismatic Dr. Hugh Maitland, he is thrilled. Setting off to take up his post at Wyldehope Hall in deepest Suffolk, Richardson doesn t look back. One of his tasks is to manage Maitland s most controversial project--a pioneering therapy in which extremely disturbed patients are kept asleep for months. If this radical and potentially dangerous procedure is successful, it could mean professional glory for both doctors. As Richardson settles into his new life, he begins to sense something uncanny about the sleeping patients--six women, forsaken by society. Why is Maitland unwilling to discuss their past lives? Why is the trainee nurse so on edge when she spends nights alone with them? And what can it mean when all the sleepers start dreaming at the same time? In this atmospheric reinvention of the ghost story, Richardson finds himself questioning everything he knows about the human mind as he attempts to uncover the shocking secrets of the sleep room.
