Turn of Mind


#23 Book Read in 2012
Turn of Mind


Jennifer White is a retired orthopedic surgeon.  Her neighbor and friend, Amanda, is found murdered with her  fingers on one hand surgically removed.  Jennifer is now a suspect but she is being honest when she says she does not remember anything; Jennifer has dementia.  This book details the spiral into absence of memory while telling a murder mystery at the same time.  This book was an interesting read.  I think it accurately detailed what a descent into dementia would be like.  The murder mystery was secondary, really, to that detail.  Jennifer was at times a character hard to like, at times a character to be pitied and at times an evil force to despise.  This book was well written.
