Winner of the Crime Writers' Association, John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger and the Galaxy National UK Thriller, Crime Novel of the Year, 2011.

Christine wakes in a strange bed beside a man she does not recognise. In the bathroom she finds a photograph of him taped to the mirror, and beneath it the words 'Your husband'.

Each day, Christine wakes knowing nothing of her life. Each night, her mind erases the day. But before she goes to sleep, she will recover fragments from her past, flashbacks to the accident that damaged her, and then - mercifully- she will forget.

Chilling, exquisitely crafted and compulsively readable, S. J. Watson's debut novel Before I Go to Sleep is a psychological thriller of the highest order. It asks primary questions. Are there things best not remembered? Who are we if we do not know our own history? How do we love without memory?

Now a major motion film directed by Rowan Joffe (Brighton Rock), starring Academy Award winners Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

S. J. Watson's debut novel, Before I Go To Sleep, has sold over four million copies and has been published in over 40 languages around the world. It has won several awards, including the UK's Crime Novel of the Year (2011) and the Prix du Polar Prize for Best Crime Novel in France. He lives in London.

'A deeply unsettling debut that asks the most terrifying question-what do you have left when you lose yourself?' Val McDermid

'A deft, perceptive exploration of a fascinating neurological condition, and a cracking good thriller.' Lionel Shriver

'An exceptional thriller. It left my nerves jangling for hours after I finished the last page.' Dennis Lehane

'Has an impossible-to-put-down quality...Before I Go to Sleep is a psychological thriller of intricacy and mind-bending qualities.' Herald Sun
