The novel is both a gripping detective yarn and a haunting depiction of mental illness, but also more poignant and blackly comic than you might expect from that description... perhaps Healey's greatest achievement is the flawless voice she creates for Maud. (The Observer)
A compelling mystery that capture the experience of Maud, a highly memorable elderly woman losing her memory (Sunday Express)
Riveting psychological thriller (Stylist's Best Books of 2014)
A thrillingly assured, haunting and unsettling novel, I read it at a gulp (Deborah Moggach)
From the Inside Flap
Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn't remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognizable - or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger.
But there's one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it.
Because somewhere in Maud's damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about.
Everyone, except Maud . . .

A nice twist of the plot at the end rounded it off nicely but there was a sense of no resolution as the events had taken place so long beforehand.
I work with people who have dementia, makes me think that some of the thing that are said do/ may have been significant to their lives. A very enjoyable book would recommend this book to anyone who knows someone with dementia.
