Stay Awake : A gripping crime thriller that will keep you up at night Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


A murder she doesn't remember committing. Or a killer she doesn't remember meeting? Liv Reese wakes up in the back of a taxi with no idea where she is or how she got there.

She is dropped off at her apartment, but is confronted by a stranger who claims to live there.

Confused, she reaches for her phone to call for help - only to find that in its place is a bloodstained knife.

That's when she sees that her hands are covered in scribbles repeating the same two words: STAY AWAKE. Last she recalls, Liv was a successful writer for a New York magazine.

Now, she's lost and disoriented in the city. She is horrified to see news reports of a crime scene where the victim's blood has been used to scrawl a message: the same message that's inked on her hands.

What did she do last night before waking in a moving car?

Liv finds herself on the run for a crime she doesn't remember committing and trying to piece together the fragments of her life.

But there's someone who knows exactly what she did, and they'll do anything to make her forget - permanently. An electrifying thriller that unfolds at a breakneck speed, Stay Awake is guaranteed to keep you up all night.

Perfect for fans of S J Watson, Lisa Unger and Riley Sager.
