Murder Never Forgets

Diana O'Hehir, Author Berkley Publishing Group $23.95 (295p) ISBN 978-0-425-20585-3
Novelist-poet O'Hehir (Pulitzer Prize-nominated I Wish This War Were Over ) turns her talents to a gracefully executed thriller that explores how memories can both protect and endanger us. Carla Day, the 25-year-old daughter of world-renowned Egyptologist Edward Day, is worried about her aging father, whose behavior has become dangerously erratic as suffers the early stages of Alzheimer's. Increasingly agitated, he insists that a woman was murdered and wrapped in a golden net. Edward lives at Green Beach Manor, an exclusive assisted living facility near Berkeley, California. His confusion and weakening mental state, however, have the Manor's staff threatening to move him to their tighter-security psychiatric building, Hope House, an ""auxiliary facility"" from which no one ever returns. To be near her father-and to get a handle on some sinister goings-on-Carla takes a job as an aid at the home. Is her father delusional or did he really witness a murder? The home's threatening atmosphere turns fatal when Carla discovers a dead body, and with the help of her on-again-off-again boyfriend Robbie, she determines to figure out what's happening at Green Beach Manor and protect her father at all costs.
