ABOUT
THE BOOK

‘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 truth.

Welcome to Christine’s life.

Before I Go To Sleep is an original and haunting debut novel which explores how our memories define us. A well written and chilling psychological thriller.

This debut novel has really caught the public’s imagination, especially the ending.
