Edgar Allen Poe Award winning mystery writer Shubin has written an “unusual and remarkably moving mystery” (Booklist). Detective Jack Lehman is a character worthy of a Clint Eastwood movie, especially when he squints and seems not to comprehend something unbelievable and the guns start blazing. Lehman is a retired detective called back to work when an anonymous phone caller tips him off to a half-million dollar heist. Only problem is, when Lehman informs his old cohorts at the prescient about the crime, he can’t remember any of the details. Is it early Alzheimer’s setting in? Lehman’s friends and family think so, and they try to reign him in. The tale unfolds like a psychological thriller, and Lehman ultimately gets his man and becomes vindicated at the end of this exciting and suspenseful book.

Book Description:

Edgar Award-winning mystery writer Shubin pens a highly unusual suspense tale featuring retired Detective Jack Lehman, who finds himself drawn back to work after 15 years to investigate a half-million dollar heist. The only problem is that no one really believs the heist actually occurred, and Lehamn's friends and family doubt he is operating with all his faculties. Surely a crime of that magnitude would be reported somewhere. Worse yet, Lehman can't remember the name of his telephone informant, nor, for that matter, the name of the victim.

This is an unusual novel seen through the eyes of a purported Alzheimer's victim, an exciting mystery/suspense story operating on at least two levels: as a psychological thriller and at the same time, one that provides keen insight into the problems facing an older adult.

About the Author:

Seymour Shubin lives in Philadelphia and continues to write and publish mysteries. His books include Anyone’s My Name, A Matter of Fear and My Face Among Strangers. He has also edited a true-crime magazine and a magazine for psychiatrists.
