Implicated in the murder of her best friend, Jennifer White, a brilliant retired surgeon with dementia, struggles with fractured memories of their complex relationship and wonders if she actually committed the crime, a situation also marked by her grown children and live-in caretaker. A first novel.
In her debut novel, TURN OF MIND, Alice Laplante laces an absorbing mystery story with a subtle psychological portrait of a woman whose memory is slipping away. Dr. Jennifer White always had a mind as sharp as her surgical knife, but now Alzheimer's is creeping deeper and deeper into her brain. When her longtime close friend is murdered, Jennifer becomes a prime suspect because of the medical nature of the murder. Piecing together fragments of her memory surrounding recent events in an effort to confirm her innocence, Jennifer simultaneously explores the complex and often contentious relationship she had with her now-deceased friend.
