Publisher's Summary

How do you solve a murder when you can remember only yesterday?

Imagine a world in which classes are divided not by wealth or religion but by how much each group can remember. Monos, the majority, have only one day's worth of memory; elite Duos have two. In this stratified society, where Monos are excluded from holding high office and demanding jobs, Claire and Mark are a rare mixed marriage. Clare is a conscientious Mono housewife, Mark a novelist-turned-politician Duo on the rise. They are a shining example of a new vision of tolerance and equality - until...

A beautiful woman is found dead, her body dumped in England's River Cam. The woman is Mark's mistress, and he is the prime suspect in her murder. The detective investigating the case has secrets of his own. So did the victim. And when both the investigator's and the suspect's memories are constantly erased - how can anyone learn the truth?

Told from four different perspectives, those of Mark, Claire, the detective on the case, and the victim, Felicia Yap's staggeringly inventive debut leads us on a race against an ever-resetting clock to find the killer. With the science fiction world building of Philip K. Dick and the twisted ingenuity of Memento, Yesterday is a thriller you'll never forget.

What the Critics Say

"At once a high-concept thriller with a sci-fi premise and an old-school noir, Felicia Yap's Yesterday is a tasty, satisfyingly grounded blend. A rich, rewarding debut that shows the ways that memory can betray us as painfully - and perhaps as inevitably - as those we love." (Andrew Pyper, best-selling author of The Demonologist)

"Hypnotic and haunting, Yesterday confidently blends suspense, noir, and science fiction to construct a truly original, breathtaking story. Felicia Yap's debut is a work of genius." (Hilary Davidson, author of Blood Always Tells)

"A compelling debut.... The piecing together of disparate memories and the surprise ending to this speculative fiction world will thrill mystery fans." (Booklist)

    "a great thriller"

    I enjoyed it. I typically don't enjoy thrillers about mystery murders. This book has the ingredients to keep you interested and also surprised. you won't believe the last bit of chapters. Stick with it!

    "Good, under-developed story"

    What an awesome idea: a world full of Monos and Duos! In this alternate universe, the world would be a far different place than what was portrayed in this book. it was a copout to have the only difference be the existence of iDiaries. With my disbelief unsatisfyingly suspended, the story was just interesting. I liked the twisty ending. The author could have had a lot of fun developing the sociological and technological differences of such a world. How about an explanation of how Duos and Monos came to be? I kept waiting for more. It never happened.
