Thriller: The Nightwalker by Sebastian Fitzek - donkeytime.orgThank you! This translation of a bestselling German novel is a page nightmare in which dreams and reality are indiscernible to the end. That would normally give the reader a feeling of closure, but in this case it's unsettling, as all along we have been masterfully led to believe that the horror, the psychological damage that's been done to Leon Nader and his wife, Natalie, have been night terrors, sleep paralysis, sleepwalking nightmares on a never-ending loop. So maybe not. As a child Leon lost his birth parents in an automobile accident.
Sebastian Fitzek verrät den gefährlichsten Platz im Flieger - Interview zu neuem Thriller
Leon wakes one morning to find his wife packing to leave. Natalie is bruised and terrified. What has he done to her? Could they be coming back? Leon starts to fear the worse when he finds a bloody thumbnail in his apartment. Did he murder her in his sleep and hide the evidence? As the divide between waking and sleeping rapidly breaks down, Leon himself starts to fall apart.
A psychological thrill-ride of a novel that finds an insomniac wondering if his nighttime excursions have turned into something beyond his imagination. As a young man, Leon Nader suffered from insomnia. As a sleepwalker, he even turned to violence during his nocturnal excursions and had psychiatric treatment for his condition. Eventually, he was convinced he had been cured—but one day, years later, Leon's wife disappears from their apartment under mysterious circumstances. Could it be that his illness has broken out again? In order to find out how he behaves in his sleep, Leon fits a movement activated camera to his forehead—and when he looks at the video the next morning he makes a discovery that bursts the borders of his imagination.
