"I. Hear. You," Grayson whispers.
"For the benefit of the tape, Grayson, despite being in a deep sleep, is now attempting to speak." I walk closer to his body, my fingers trembling against the tape recorder in my hand. "Grayson, can you understand me?"
"Grayson is asleep. I. Hear. You."

Freya Hale is known for her controversial cases involving the mentally insane. Time after time she has stood in the dock of the courtroom, after evaluating a patient's mental state following a heinous crime, and declared them irresponsible for their actions. After becoming one of the country's best psychologists, her area of interest has moved to the darkest and most dangerous cases.
But never, ever, has she come across a case like this.
Grayson Miller was once a normal man with a loving family. Until he began sleepwalking. And one night, murdered his entire family in his sleep. With no memory of the incident, and no other defense than his subconscious, the police force and the prosecution are made to deliver a realistic verdict of death row.
When Freya hears about Grayson's defense, she embarks on a terrifying and dangerous mission to prove that the subconscious is not connected to us, and has its own agenda and personality. But upon meeting Grayson's murderous and evil subconscious, she begins to question her own state of mind, as she too, begins sleepwalking.
INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS.
This book contains terrifying theories and horror. There have been several cases of homicidal sleepwalking, and no one has ever questioned the actual idea of it: what if our subconscious knows exactly what it's doing?
