Clarion Reviews on The Sleeper

In Solease M. Barner’s intriguing debut novel…
Barner breathes new life into the common trope of a protagonist
leading a double life by having Holiday narrate the
novel in a matter-of-fact tone. Readers cannot
distance themselves from Holiday’s affectionate
family moments or from her emotionless
murders because she recounts her own actions,
making the sex scenes steamier and the killings more shuddersome.
