Bravo to Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé for creating such a compelling dark academia mystery that’s also layered with such potent depth. Though just shy of a whopping 600 pages, the pace and plotting of Where Sleeping Girls Lie is chef’s-kiss superb, with tremendous page-turning power propelling a tale of surviving loss, trauma and abuses of power amidst the dark halls of an elite boarding school.

Shot-through with suspense and escalating menace, the story begins when new girl Sade encounters trouble as soon as she sets foot in Alfred Nobel Academy, and her roommate Elizabeth goes missing. As suspicious eyes fall on Sade, she forms a bond with Elizabeth’s best friend Baz (real name Basil), and they set about finding out what really happened to Elizabeth.

As the duo make dark discoveries, aided by revelations from the ”Unholy Trinity (as Baz has dubbed the school’s “It girls”), a super-rich male student is murdered, which leads to the unravelling of a web of despicable secrets, lies, cover-ups and toxicity, and the unleashing of revenge.
