Publisher's Summary

Winner of CWA Best unabridged Crime Audiobook 2012.

Winner – CRIME THRILLER OF THE YEAR – BRITISH BOOK AWARDS

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.

What the Critics Say

“Quite simply the best debut novel I've ever read.” (Tess Gerritsen)

“Brilliant in its pacing, profound in its central question, suspenseful on every page - and satisfying in its thriller ending.” (Anita Shreve)

“A deft, perceptive exploration of a fascinating neurological condition, and a cracking good thriller.” (Lionel Shriver)

“A terrific first novel - well-written, genuinely unsettling and psychologically very plausible. Thrillers seldom come much better than this. Loved it, read it in one.” (Joanne Harris)

“An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.” (Dennis Lehane)

“So high-concept, so ambitious and so structurally brilliant. It's so rare to read a thriller that's perfect in every detail, but this one definitely qualifies!” (Sophie Hannah)

“A deeply unsettling debut that asks the most terrifying question - what do you have left when you lose yourself?” (Val McDermid)

“A truly amazing debut. The central character, Christine, is beautifully drawn. It's hard to imagine a more compelling, believable and sympathetic portrayal of a damaged human being. I loved it from start to finish.” (Mo Hayder)

    "Riveting"

    An intriguing story with for me an unexpected twist. The tension was kept to the very end and left the reader with choices to make. I enjoyed the book very much and the excellent narrator.
    Would recommend as a good listen.

    "Anti climax"

    Started fairly dull, picked up and hinted at a big twist. Sadly it just fades away... An anti climax

    Story
    "What a dreadful over detailed and boring story. "

    I ended up not caring for the characters and the amount of pointless detail that the author continually felt compelled to convey was both frustrating and boring. The story was so full of holes too - all finally explained by the most tenuous of reasons in the dying chapter of this book. Never have I disliked a story as much as this.

    Story
    "Fascinating and interesting"

    A good listen. A few contradictions and paradoxes in this very interesting book but it hangs together well and these can be ignored - artistic license - for the benefit of the telling.
    Original well told story
