From Publishers Weekly

02 May 2011 – Memories real, false, and a bit of both are at the heart of British author Watson's haunting, twisted debut. Christine Lucas awakens each morning in London with no idea who she is or why she's in bed with a strange man, until he tells her that his name is Ben and they've been married for 22 years. Slowly, Christine learns that she has amnesia and is unable to remember her past or retain new memories: every night when she falls asleep, the slate is wiped clean. Dr. Nash, her therapist, has encouraged her to write in a journal that she keeps secret from Ben. Christine realizes how truly tangled and dangerous her life is after she sees the words "don't trust Ben" written in her journal, whose contents reveal that the only person she can trust is herself. Watson handles what could have turned into a cheap narrative gimmick brilliantly, building to a chillingly unexpected climax.

A Great Read

I initially read the opening chapter in the Project magazine iPad app and simply had to buy the full version on it's release.

A fascinating storyline with believable characters, and enticing droplets of clues and suspense throughout. My only criticism is that it perhaps lingered a little too long about 1/2 way through - the details of which I shall not go into as it may spoil the plot - but otherwise I couldn't put it down once I'd started. A great read and I would highly recommend to anyone. I shall be looking out for Watson's next release.


I loved this book. I literally couldn't put it down and ended up reading it all within 24 hours. One of the best reads for a long time.

Before I go to sleep

Not one that kept me awake, I even managed to go to bed with only 20 pages left!
It was ok, loved the concept, but did not grip me.
