Deirdre Unger has returned to her childhood home to help her father ready the house for sale. Instead she finds her dad face down in the swimming pool! Imagine her increased devastation when she discovers that her father's accident was not that at all but a well-planned murder.

In 1963, Deirdre was in her friend Joelen's house when Joelen admitted to killing her movie-star mother's boyfriend. This was the same night Deirdre was crippled in an automobile accident. She becomes convinced that her father's recent murder was somehow connected to the killing so long ago. As was her accident. So much to discover. All the while watching her back, Deirdre delves more closely into that horrifying act that could have put her close friend Joelen in jail for life.

Night Night, Sleep Tight is full of suspense and speculation about what really happened that night in the past. Hallie Ephron has taken the notorious night when Johnny Stompanato (movie star Lana Turner's boyfriend) was stabbed to death by Turner's daughter Cheryl Crane. She weaves her own rendition of events into this gripping novel. And does it well.
