Publishers Weekly reviews STOLEN MEMORIES

Publishers Weekly reviews a select few of the hundreds of books they receive each week, and I was fortunate that they chose Stolen Memories for their April 4 publication. And doubly fortunate that the reviewer liked it!

Stolen Memories CoverMary Miley. CreateSpace, $9.99 trade paper (260p) ISBN 978-151-888370-5

Set in Paris in 1928, this suspenseful novel from Miley (Silent Murders) will appeal to fans of the classic movie Gaslight. After surviving being thrown into the Seine, the unidentified narrator wakes in a hospital to find that she can’t recall her name or anything else about her life. Although the passport found in her purse identifies her as Eva Johnson, she refuses to accept that name. She’s haunted by feverish dreams involving lost paintings and a lost little boy, and her conscious moments are also a torment, especially after she’s confronted by Alexander DeSequeyra, a man claiming to be her husband. Her alarm only grows after hearing that Alexander committed a murder years earlier, but escaped conviction due to his wealth and influence. She becomes even more isolated after Alexander arranges her discharge from the hospital into his care, having overcome the doctor’s medical objections with a hefty bribe. Miley keeps the twists coming—and the reader guessing—to the end.
