A Death to Remember

Roger Ormerod, Author Scribner Book Company $14.95 (208p) ISBN 978-0-684-18834-8
A British civil servant, Cliff Summers, recovering from amnesia, and garage owner Tony Clayton, just released from prison after being convicted of hitting Summers over the head and obliterating his memory, play the leading roles in Ormerod's gripping new mystery. Swearing his innocence, Clayton offers to help Summers and a detective friend, Bill Porter, to investigate the dodgy case. Summers had been auditing the books at the garage when a blow knocked him out; his car is still in the service bay. But now the battered body of Clayton's wife Tessa is in the trunk. Adding frustrating angles to the mystery is Summers's suspicion of his ex-wife Valerie and her husband Michael Orton, Clayton's accountant. The narrative will keep readers intent on a series of shocking events capped by the revelation in the clever author's last two words. (August)
