Review: Sleep Savannah Sleep by Alistair Cross

by MK French

Jason Crandall moved to the small town of Shadow Springs with his surly teenage son and young daughter after the death of his wife. He enjoyed small-town life, right up until Savannah Surgess went missing. Some of the secrets the townspeople harbored were revealed, and he started getting visions related to her disappearance.

ebook, print (288 pages); horror
While the book starts off relatively slowly, introducing us to the Crandall family, their neighbors and the other residents of Shadow Springs, it doesn't feel like an unwelcome slowness. We're introduced to their stories a little at a time, almost like a mystery of its own before Savannah goes missing and Jason's visions begin. The small town drama starts feeding into the supernatural elements and murder mystery, with elements of horror as part of Jason's visions. The solution to the mystery was a shock, and it left me wondering if there clues along the way that I had missed. Overall, this was an engaging novel that sucked me in and kept me up late at night to finish it.

What was nice was that at the core of the mysteries and the strain of Jason's visions, the book was really about relationships, trauma and moving on from grief. Everyone in the book was affected by their own issues long before the disappearance shook up the town, and we got to see how people coped and grew.
