The Night Walker ( Nightmare hall series) by Diana Hoh

Quinn Hadley is a sleep walker. She has done it twice when she came to the Salem university. Nobody except her  roomie knows about it. But things takes a bad turn when  someone wreaks havoc in the university, sometimes by exploding a stinking bomb and  by attacking the couples at other times. The attacking episodes seemed no end. Quinn Hadley was apprehensive by the sudden turn of events, but her apprehensions turns into nightmares when every evidences points that the culprit is nobody but her. Looking at the evidences piled up in front of her, Quinn also doubts that whether her sleep walking is the real cause of all those recurring unfortunate incidents in the university. But a fleeting  thought that somebody is taking advantage of her ' sleep walking ' and making her a pawn did not leave her sleep without investigating into the root cause of everything.

 It is an easy read and I enjoyed it as I used to enjoy Nancy Drew series. There was suspense and mystery element and at times  you would feel that you are quite close to the vandal, but you miss him/ her. Though Diane Hoh do drop some clues here and there did not give away the culprit until the right time.

Long and short, a good and a smooth read....I enjoyed it.
