    A 2017 literary event
  • Richard Skinner, author of THE RED DANCER

    Felicia Yap's YESTERDAY is a massively clever thriller that investigates our notions of memory and identity with a clear, unflinching eye
  • Alex Gray, author of THE BIRD THAT DID NOT SING

    This was an amazing book, very original and despite challenging the reader's suspension of disbelief it drew me in very quickly. Terrific to find a book that can be classed as a crime thriller yet stand out from the crowd.
  • J.S. Law, author of TENACITY

    The most original thriller you'll read this year! A page turner you'll never forget.
  • Adam Hamdy, author of PENDULUM

    YESTERDAY is an original, inventive, gripping novel.
  • William Shaw, author of A SONG FROM DEAD LIPS

    Never has psychological crime fiction been so original, so witty and so inventive. This is an absolute firecracker of a read. I haven't enjoyed a debut this much in ages.

  • James Oswald, author of NATURAL CAUSES

    A great murder mystery with a unique and unsettling twist. This book delighted and confounded me in equal measure!

  • Twist Phelan, Thriller Award-winning author of FAKE

    When it comes to memories, what do we choose to forget? To believe? Felicia Yap looks at these questions in Yesterday, an inventive, engrossing old-school murder mystery wrapped in a futuristic setting with a side of compelling love story and a killer twist at the end. Clever, unconventional, fast-paced, and above all engaging, Yesterday is a book to remember.
  • Hannah Lillith Assadi, author of SONORA

    Felicia Yap's Yesterday is a story about the vulnerability of memory and how the past always returns to haunt us. An exhilarating revenge thriller, equal parts suspense and philosophical science fiction.
  • Rob Hart, author of NEW YORKED

    Yesterday is an inventive, wicked thriller with an addictive puzzle-box narrative. Every time I thought I had it figured out, Felicia Yap hits me with another twist.
  • Andrew Pyper, bestselling author of THE DEMONOLOGIST

    At once a high-concept thriller with a sci-fi premise and an old-school noir, Felicia Yap's Yesterday is a tasty, satisfyingly grounded blend. A rich, rewarding debut that shows the ways that memory can betray us as painfully - and perhaps as inevitably - as those we love.
  • Michael Cooper, author of CLAWBACK

    Felicia Yap takes a unique premise and rockets through this year's most clever storyline. Spectacular twists, characters as distinct as they are compelling, and a resolution absolutely no one will have seen coming make Yesterday a propulsive read. Memory loss has never been so fun.
