With awesome advanced quotes from other bestselling authors ranging from Tess Gerritsen - 'the best debut I've ever read', Anita Shreve - 'suspenseful on every page', Joanne Harris - 'thrillers seldom come much better than this' and Lionel Shriver - 'deft, perceptive...a cracking good thriller' I suspect whatever we say may well not form part of your decision on whether to read this debut or not.  But if you do also want our guidance then don't even spend time reading the extract or watching the video clip below on our site.  It's so good we suggest you just go ahead and buy it!

 

CWA Judges’ comments: ‘Beautifully realised and enticingly stylised – really gripping and scary. Accomplished and highly effective debut.’

Synopsis

Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson

'As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me ...' Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.
