Read From a Dead Sleep (Sean Coleman Thriller #1) Online Free - There are times when the truth invites evil, and there are times when the truth can get you killed. Few residents in the secluded mountain-town of Winston, Colorado, have kind words to say about local troublemaker Sean Coleman. He's a bully, a drunk, and a crime-show addicted armchair detective with an overactive imagination. After a night of poor judgment, Sean finds himself the sole witness to the unusual suicide of a mysterious stranger. With the body whisked away in the chilling rapids of a raging river, no one believes Sean's account. When his claim is met with doubt and mockery from the people of Winston, Sean embarks on a far-reaching crusade that takes him across the country in search of the dead man's identity and personal vindication. He hopes to find redemption and the truth---but sometimes the truth is better left unknown.

A thriller that packs a punch!

John A. Daly’s first book, From a Dead Sleep, centres around Coleman,...

I loved this book. The suspense had me sitting on the edge of my seat. The bad guys didn’t care who they had to kill in order to keep their secret. My favorite types of books have a sort of mystery in them–I’m all about trying to solv...

I liked how each cha...
