Recommends it for: Mystery lovers.
4 1/2 Stars....Bache's story is interesting and the writing is stellar. One of the best reads for me in a good while. She had me glued to the storyline. I was surprised more than once pleasantly I might add. She doesn't waste my time with wordy chapters. The book is about baby boomers and the friendship that has lasted over 50 years..but it is much more than that...This could be a Safe Passage .. I will rent first chance I get...would rather read the book...

We'd all grown up in the flourishing Washington, D.C., suburb-Marilyn, me, Steve, Penny and Wish...the boy I'd loved. It was during the baby-boom years, when the future was luminous. But things don't always turn out as expected. Ri

There were lots of them in those days, most of them marvelous glimpses into a grown-up world I could barely imagine, but that felt glamorous and forbidden and appealing. So I grew up writing women's fiction instead of becoming the docto ...more
