How do you know who to trust…
…when you don’t even know who you are?
You are outside your front door.
There are strangers in your house.
Then you realise. You can’t remember your name.
She arrived at the train station after a difficult week at work. Her bag had been stolen, and with it, her identity.
Her whole life was in there – passport, wallet, house key. When she tried to report the theft, she couldn’t remember her own name. All she knew was her own address.
Now she’s outside Tony and Laura’s front door. She says she lives in their home. They say they have never met her before.
One of them is lying.
Forget My Name was published in the UK in 2019 by Head of Zeus and as The Last Thing She Remembers by Park Row Books (HarperCollins) in the US.

Acclaim for The Last Thing She Remembers:
Jon Land, Sunday Providence Journal: “Psychological thrillers have a higher bar to meet, given the lack of action to propel them from scene to scene. But J.S. Monroe’s The Last Thing She Remembers maintains relentless propulsion absent bombs and falling bodies — well, at least far fewer.
The Hitchcockian setup casts Jemma Huish as an amnesiac, her condition induced by a seemingly random robbery in London’s Heathrow Airport. Before you can say “Spellbound,” though, Monroe has thrown enough twists and turns into Jemma’s plight to turn his follow-up to the equally superb Find Me into a splendid slice of post-modern noir with just enough gothic overtones thrown into the mix for good measure.
The Last Thing She Remembers is not a book you’ll easily forget, a riveting, tortuous ride into the depths of psychological despair and angst with the structural complexity of a Rubik’s Cube.”
“The Last Thing She Remembers by J.S. Monroe is a smart, swift thriller with an intriguing premise and a wicked final sting.”
“J.S. Monroe’s The Last Thing She Remembers was a genuine surprise–a literary feast. It is both a creepy, unnerving psychological thriller and an intense serial killer thriller all wrapped up into one mystery that was very difficult to put down. Who is this mystery woman and what does she want? Is she planning to kill someone or is someone planning to kill her?… This novel is rife with suspense, shocks, horror, mystery, and romance. It is both heartwarming and tragic. The ending is very bittersweet. It will be a long time before I forget The Last Thing She Remembers.”
