1 Mins read

In this tension-filled followup to her 2015 hit, Black-Eyed Susans, Julia Heaberlin finds an appealing protagonist in Grace, whose older sister went missing a dozen years ago. Now 24, Grace’s prime suspect in the disappearance is photographer Carl Feldman. Feldman has Alzheimer’s disease and resides in a half-way house in Texas. She conspires to get him on a road trip to confront his supposed crimes and jolt a confession out of him. But is he guilty? Does he even have dementia? It’s a brisk cat-and-mouse game with potential violence always just around the corner. Read our full review here.
