Turn Of Mind by Alice LaPlante- 304 pages
Is the perfect murder the one you can't forget or the one you can't remember?
Dr. Jennifer White, a brilliant former surgeon in the early grips of Alzheimer's, is suspected of murdering her best friend, Amanda. Amanda's body was found brutally disfigured — with four of her fingers cut off in a precise, surgical manner. As the police pursue their investigation and Jennifer searches her own mind for fractured clues to Amanda's death, a portrait emerges of a complex relationship between two uncompromising, unsentimental women, lifelong friends who were at times each other's most formidable adversaries.
My review: 2 stars
Perhaps it was the writing style of the book that was so hard for me to continue with it or maybe not. Either way I'm midway through and the repetitiveness and the forgetfulness of the dementia was incredibly difficult for me to get through. Unfortunately, I didn’t find any true connection to the characters. I really wanted to like this book and the characters more than I did as the idea behind it is fascinating.
