Turn of Mind
64 year-old Jennifer White is a widow, a former acclaimed hand surgeon, and Alzheimer victim. We witness her decline first-hand through Jennifer's own experiences. When someone murders Jennifer's best friend, 75-year-old Amanda, who lives three doors down, suspicion falls on Jennifer because the killer surgically removed four fingers from Amanda's hand.
Jennifer herself has no idea whether or not she has committed this heinous crime. We watch on the edge of our seats as Jennifer moves from one uncomfortable situation to the next, with a sense of entitlement, confusion, and sometimes humor.
This is the first literary mystery by Alice LaPlante.
