SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD is a classic Boston based murder mystery that continues where DEAD MEN TALK left off.  It is the further adventures of Private Investigator and ex-cop Jack Kelly.  This time Kelly is exposed to a more depraved side of the cutthroat business of the cheap detective.  A story of greed and lust set against a backdrop of blues, jazz music, and the incredibly rich and dirt poor Boston neighborhoods.  As is usual with Jack Kelly, the bodies start to pile up.  And as always, the salty and sometimes deeply philosophical dialogues pierce the mind and heart.  But this time a young girl’s life is held in a death trap and her time is running out.

In this action-packed thriller, Kelly and his cast of characters, Lieutenant Jessica Paris, Willie Crawford, The Musician, and the Soul Brothers, utilize some classic hard-nosed police work to uncover a sinister plot involving multiple murders and a fortune of oceanic proportions.  And there are sharks in the water.

This bold modern day mystery is cutting edge, both fast and irreverently funny.  It reads like a fresh and brazen film noir and will translate well to film.  Johnny Barnes was a private investigator in Boston for 11 years and has been a cop for the last 15.
