I have liked all of Anne Frasier's books, particularly HUSH -- great character development and forward momentum. BEFORE I WAKE is the first of the post-HUSH novels that really had me hooked from beginning to end though. I think a lot of it has to do with the ease in which i was able to identify with Arden, the main character -- I get where she's coming from and she doesn't feel flat and two-dimensional like a lot of thriller novel protagonists. It did take me a little while to get used to the idea of mind bleaching, it seemed a little far-fetched for me at first, but I quickly found myself buried in the story. It definitely helps that Frasier's writing is clever and funny, even in the scariest of situations. Anyway, it's really a well-written book and more importantly, a fun read from beginning to end.

The Amazon reader reviews gave a very high rating for this book, but I thought the plot was highly contrived, it really dragged in places, and I wasn't really very interested in the characters or the plot.

Found this book in the seat pocket in a plane. I started the book and couldn't get into it. My friend read it and LOVED it. Said the book had lots of plot twists and was a good suspense read.

another great suspenseful story from Anne Frasier. An experiment gone bad is only the beginning

Ex-FBI agent, Arden Davis is still haunted with memories of her parents savage murders by a serial killer, since put to death. Even after his death, his gruesome work is being carried out by his "apprentice" and the murdering continues.

Arden's mind was "bleached" by a highly controversial method, to rid her of the nightmares she continued to have, reliving the finding of her parents bodies and she won't rest until she finds out the truth about their deaths.

It's really difficult to write a short review of this very complicated story. You just need to read it for yourself:)
