It is the 1970s in Oakland County, Michigan. For countless middle-class families working for Detroit’s booming auto industry, life is good.
The Detroit suburbs were a great place to raise a family. Excellent schools, beautiful and comfortable neighborhoods with little crime. Violence against children was unthinkable…which makes the sudden abduction and murder of a local teenager all the more shocking. However, when other children begin to disappear it becomes apparent that a greater evil is at work.
Criminal psychologist Dr. Charlie Taylor assists the Michigan State Police in their hunt for the killer they’ve dubbed “the Babysitter,” due to the strange and unusual circumstances behind the murders. Local law enforcement has a decidedly mixed opinion of Charlie, a young woman in a field largely dominated by men. However, she manages to find an ally in Detective Pete West, and as the two draw closer to uncovering the Babysitter’s identity. She and West come across other shadowy and powerful connections that are intimately connected with the murders, drawing a greater mystery to the killer’s identity. Meanwhile, Oakland County residents live in fear, waiting for the next child to disappear.
A riveting account of a community under siege, Sleep, Baby, Sleep fictionalizes the events surrounding the true unsolved Oakland County child killer case.
