By Alice LaPlante
This is a fascinating, thriller of a novel. Alice LaPlante takes us into the extraordinary mind of a woman who is an educated surgeon, but who is also sinking into dementia.
When we first meet Dr. Jennifer White, her neighbor and best friend, Amanda, has been murdered. Oddly, some fingers have also been seemingly surgically removed from the murdered woman’s hand.
As the investigation into Amanda’s death and mutilation ensues, Dr. White is a suspect. She does not even know if she is involved. Is her mind preventing her from remembering something, or could it be protecting her from something horrific?
