From the Publisher:
Implicated in the murder of her best friend, Jennifer White, a brilliant retired surgeon with dementia, struggles with fractured memories of their complex relationship and wonders if she actually committed the crime.
Annotation:
In her debut novel, TURN OF MIND, Alice Laplante laces an absorbing mystery story with a subtle psychological portrait of a woman whose memory is slipping away. Dr. Jennifer White always had a mind as sharp as her surgical knife, but now Alzheimer's is creeping deeper and deeper into her brain. When her longtime close friend is murdered, Jennifer becomes a prime suspect because of the medical nature of the murder. Piecing together fragments of her memory surrounding recent events in an effort to confirm her innocence, Jennifer simultaneously explores the complex and often contentious relationship she had with her now-deceased friend.

Praise

"This masterfully written debut is fascinating on so many levels, from its poignant and inventive depiction of a harrowing illness to its knowing portrayal of the dark complexities of friendship and marriage." (starred review) - Joanne Wilkinson 05/01/2011

"Alzheimer's is bleak territory, and to saddle Jennifer with suspected murder seems cruel and unusual punishment. But in LaPlante's vivid prose, her waning mind proves a prism instead of a prison, her memory refracted to rich, sensual effect. There are moments of steely, surgical calm, the language tight and fractured....And there are moments of blooming, antic poetry...." - Zoe Slutzky 07/15/2011
