IF YOU CAN'T REMEMBER WHO TRIED TO KILL YOU, HOW WILL YOU FIND THEM?

'BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN' DAILY MAIL
'ONE HELL OF A DEBUT.' HEAT
'A GREAT STORY TOLD WITH REAL POISE' SIMON KERNICK, SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Waking up, she couldn't remember anything. Who she was. Who had taken her.
Detective Abigail Boone has been missing for four days when she is finally found, confused and broken. Suffering retrograde amnesia, she is a stranger to her despairing husband and bewildered son.

Hopelessly lost in her own life, with no leads on her abduction, Boone's only instinct is to revisit the case she was investigating when she vanished: the baffling disappearance of a young woman, Sarah Still.

Defying her family and the police, Boone obsessively follows a deadly trail to the darkest edges of human cruelty. But even if she finds Sarah, will Boone ever be the same again?

From a blistering new voice in crime fiction, PAST LIFE is a gripping and razor-sharp thriller perfect for fans of authors such as Ian Rankin, Tim Weaver, Susie Steiner, Joseph Knox and Don Winslow.

Review quote

A policewoman suffering amnesia must find the truth about her own violent kidnapping in Dominic Nolan's thrilling, roller coaster debut. Tense, gripping and full of twists and turns, this read will keep you on the edge of your seat. * Dead Good Books * Memory is at the centre of Nolan's bold and sharply written book...In a genre oversaturated by samey stories, Past Life is a dark crime fiction debut that feels fresh, smart and thrilling * Culturefly * I really loved this...a twisting, heart-wrenching story with wonderfully vivid characters * Claire McGowan * A smart debut from a distinctive new voice * The People * I loved it. Boone is such a compelling character. It's taut, beautifully written and at some points the tension is almost too much to bear * Harriet Tyce * An astonishing debut * Woman's Own * A beautifully written debut... * Daily Mail * A great story told with real poise * Simon Kernick * A smart, distinctive debut * Sunday Mirror * It's gripping, addictive, a thrill of a ride. This is crime as it should be written. one of the best, original introductions of a protagonist I've read * Jo Spain *
