Library Journal Review

What do you do with a criminal who has escaped justice and now has dementia? Carl Feldman-a documentary photographer now residing in an assisted-living facility-may be just such a person. And though he was acquitted for one murder, he's probably committed many more. That last fact is what brings a young woman to Carl's door; she says she's his daughter and wants to get to know him, but in reality she is determined to delve into the reaches of his memory. She's determined to find the man who killed her older sister, and believes Carl is responsible. And while Carl isn't fully convinced that she's his daughter and claims not to remember killing anyone, he does agree to accompany the woman on a death trip, which will take them to the sites where he is suspected to have enacted the crimes. VERDICT -Heaberlin's latest (after Black-Eyed Susans) is a tense, gripping read with a cat-and-mouse game that will keep readers riveted.
