"SEX, DEATH, AND NOISY NEIGHBOURS"

A killer has come to town. The victims are connected; each pointing to the next, as if in answer to the question: Who is The One?

Is it Peter Reynolds: mild-mannered office clerk pouring petrol through his neighbour’s letterbox in the middle of the night?

Is it Wayne Dolan: a man whose sexual fantasies about his neighbour spiral into dangerous obsession when he learns of her secret life as a dominatrix?

Or is it Gaz: leader of three friends who love nothing more than sex, weed and partying? All women are easy prey for his charms. All except Sally. And the one who doesn’t want him, is the one he has to have – whether she likes it or not.

Mick Nixon has to find the connection, because people are disappearing - and if he and Sally are ever going to share more than just lunch, he’d better hurry up, or they could be next.

A dark, funny, and at times horrific ride, One Among the Sleepless is a thriller set just below the surface of suburban existence. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll throw it through your neighbour’s window tied to a house brick!

Not on par with Underwood & Flinch

If you’re checking this out because you loved Underwood & Flinch, don’t waste your time. One Among the Sleepless has much more in common with Mr. Bennett’s Glitterballs sitcom attempts. The tone and quality is consistent throughout, and the ending is neither surprising or interesting. Sexual situations are flatter and less stimulating than the characters.

DO check out the excellent Underwood & Flinch vampire-adventure series!

Can't recommend highly enough

Biting, nailing, awesome humor. This is as good as it gets. The only thing bad is when it's close to being over you get a sense of loss and anxiety that it will be over too soon!

Loved this very unique story

Mike Bennett is genius. This story is very different but has a great twist in the story and a really awesome ending very exciting!
