Summary, etc.: When convicted murderer and paranoid schizophrenic Michael Hrubek escapes from the New England Hospital for the Criminally Insane, there is one person he especially wants to see:Lis Atcheson, 40-year-old high school English teacher, cultivator of roses—and the chief witness at his trial. As Michael pursues Lis, several others hunt Michael: Trenton Heck, a professional tracker in need of the reward money; Richard Kohler, Michael's psychiatrist with secrets of his own to hide; Dr. Ronald Adler, head of the hospital, whose plush job is threatened by Michael's escape; and Owen Atcheson, Lis's husband, who is determined to reach Michael and kill him—before Michael reaches Lis. A taut psychological thriller in the tradition of Silence of the Lambs and Deliverance, Praying for Sleep will keep you on the edge of your chair.
