About this ebook

For fans of Ian McEwan, a gripping, tautly plotted novel of adultery and betrayal.

Leila and Richard conceive a child in a moment of giggling chaos while getting dressed for a holiday party. Arriving late and still flushed, they barely register a slight, drab woman who, like a shadow, threatens the happiness they've achieved. But Sylvie's presence cannot be ignored. As the pregnancy progresses and Sylvie inserts herself into their lives, the couple finds themselves tangled in a web of deceit and uncertainty--distrusting each other and gradually coming to doubt even their own memories.

Compelling and haunting, told with astonishing clarity from both Richard and Lelia's points of view, Sleep with Me is an extraordinary tale of obsession and desire that takes hold, body and soul, and doesn't let go until the final page is turned.
