Review quote

"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

Our customer reviews

I liked "Still Alice" about the early onset of Alzheimers by Lisa Genova, so I was quite interested in this amnesiac's story. It was a real psychological page-turner, and I had to keep reading to find out who was telling the truth--whom can you trust? The ending is a surprise! Loved it!show more
