If I Die Before I Wake

Published by: Harvill Secker

Extremely slick and excruciatingly tense debut. A brilliant Hitchcockian premise – a possible murder victim who can’t speak or move – provides an original and unforgettable narrator. The writing has perfect control of what the protagonist and reader know and when they discover it.
