Booklist Review

In Fraser's latest blend of mystery and family saga, magazine writer Rona Parish launches a series of articles on seemingly normal people who have had unusual experiences. Take Frank Hathaway, who was in Kuwait when Iraq invaded and was also on the Entebbe plane hijacked by Palestinian and German terrorists. But it's Frank's recent involvement in trying to rescue a dying man from a burning car that really captures Rona's interest. Frank suffered amnesia after the crash, but his traumatic memories are returning, and he's convinced the victim tried to tell him who ran him off the road and why it's just that he can't remember what the man said and, therefore, the case has never been solved. Rona wants to help, but her plate is already full, what with her man-crazy sister, the new romances of both her divorced parents, and the attentions of a semi-famous clothing designer who's convinced that a profile by Rona will magically revive his foundering career. Despite a surfeit of plots, characters, and subplots, this is an engaging tale about murder and modern families.--Melton, Emily Copyright 2014 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Those who are content to meander through an English country town full of characters mostly irrelevant to the central plot will best appreciate Fraser's leisurely ninth Rona Parish mystery (after 2012's A Question of Identity). Rona has just completed her latest biography and is starting to write a series for a magazine about people who have lived in unusual places or through unusual events when she meets her father's old friend Frank Hathaway, who was in Kuwait at the time of the Iraqi invasion. While interviewing him, she learns that Frank has been having flashbacks involving a car crash and a failed rescue that he was involved in the previous year. As Frank recovers more of his memory of the accident-and of being in Kuwait when war was declared-Rona turns sleuth. Series fans will be glad to see her troubled house next door occupied by the owners at last, and to find most of Rona's family settling down. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
