Clare is getting married and after ten years of no contact whatsoever, wants to get back in touch. Nora is really surprised by this, and a little nervous given how they left things. After deliberation she decides to say yes because there’s another person she knows on the list whom she actually likes, Nina.
Ah thrillers. They will always be one of my favourite genres no matter how much more of anything else I read. There’s something wonderful about watching detectives, vigilantes and criminals do crazy things and give you adrenaline pumping moments without you having to put yourself in any kind of danger. And in that aspect, Remember Death does really well.
We’ve all seen him: the man – the monster – staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime.
But what about the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs – the woman who stands by him?
Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.
Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.
But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.
Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows.
