About the Book

In 1963, a young nurse is brutally murdered in her Atlanta apartment. Her boyfriend was quickly indicted and convicted for the crime. Solving this case launched the career of, now retired, homicide detective Roger Jennings. But did he get the right man?

Twenty-five years later, in 1988, college professor Doreen Patrice Grant is struggling with a dangerous memory hidden deep within her mind – a memory that could cost her life. Dr. Tom Richards, Jr., a wealthy family practice physician, is frantically trying to solve the mystery surrounding the presumed suicide death of his father. Will his obsession with the investigation ultimately drive him to the same fate? Someone is hiding a deadly secret that connects Doreen and Tom. Is it the eccentric mystery writer, T. J. Corprou; the ambitious former judge, Bennett Hargrove; or Hargrove’s loyal confidant, cousin and bodyguard, Burke Hargrove? Doreen is beginning to remember the secret that will finally reveal all the answers, if she lives long enough to tell it. Who will silence her memory for good? The clock is ticking . . . and Doreen’s time is running out!

To Silence Her Memory weaves an intricate tale of love, loyalty, betrayal, deception . . . and murder.
