This clever mystery threw me a little at first, organised as it is into the format of a play, but the structure soon became invisible once I got engrossed in the story. Normally I'm pretty good at working out the ending of crime stories but this one genuinely threw me! Highly recommended. ...more

Definitely a Different Type of Story (In a good way)

It took a bit for me to get used to the format but, I really enjoyed "knowing" what every character was doing and thinking. It rounded everything out.
The storyline has some amount of disturbing information and I will caution some readers to keep that in mind.
Overall, it was a well developed, creative, and intelligently designed book. There are so many angles and perspectives that readers are privy to that connects pieces in a way that you miss

This is a novel with a difference. It’s written as a Greek Tragedy and what a tragedy it is for all those unlucky enough to become involved with Eric Warner. So we have, mystery, murder and mayhem as in all good Greek Tragedies.

The play opens with a body being found, sitting on the ground and resting against a tree in Tersel Woods. The man has no identification, no wallet, and no cell phone. Added to that is the fact that the woman who called the emergency services has given an incorrect phone n

Firstly, I try to review every book I read, as most of them are books that I find for free on various websites. This book was also sent to me for free by the author, and I was pleasantly surprised at the writing style. It's written in the present tense, which was really good to read. The story is excellent - if you pay very close attention to names (that's all I'm saying about that lol), you could possibly be able to figure out who killed a well to do man with a beautiful second wife and a past ...more

This is certainly an unusual style of murder/mystery book, it is written as a sort of amalgamation of play, prose and poetry, the format works quite well, but whilst it makes the book stand out, I'm not sure that it actually improves the experience of reading the book, but neither should it put a potential reader off.
The plot is clever, and provides plenty of twists and turns and red-herrings, and I have to admit that I didn't spot who was guilty until it was revealed. The characters are also we

An unconventional murder mystery—a remarkable feat!

From its opening sentence to its last, Remember Me? remains a pleasant surprise. Lakelett’s unique use of the play format for her tale of mystery is both refreshing and intriguing. She effortlessly pulls the reader in and succeeds, one scene at a time, to complicate the plot, accelerate the pace, add twist upon twist, and add layers to her distinct mystery. Only on the last page is the reader allowed to take a breath, and then some! A remarkable

Interesting style, the plot was strong enough to stand up without the unusual format. A little bit predictable in parts. 3.5

Kindle Unlimited but got some freebie days or giveaways set up on freebie sites by the writer. The last one was supposed to have another Faukon but writer decided it was better as standalone of somewhat different type instead.

Remember me. This was a different kind of book. It starts out as a Greek tragedy and gives you many different suspects for a murder that's hard to solve. I love a good mystery that takes a while to solve. And when you find out who did it, it's surprising. I did get a little confused with some of the people and who was who. I enjoyed this book! *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. *** ...more

3.5 stars

'A tragedy in three acts' ~ this is an unusual take on the murder mystery novel. It's part play, part narrative, part poetry, revolving around a dead body found in Tersel Woods. An experimental structure indeed, it's one that works very well on some levels and less so on others.

An excellent start reveals the story of Julia, from the years 1993 ~ 1995, as she tells her mother about the joy she's found with her new love, that qui

Bravo to the author for taking a chance by using a combination of a very untraditional format for a novel — a play — and yet combining it with a standard novel storyline that's suspenseful, skillfully paced, and intriguing. When I started it, in fact, I was dubious such a thing could be pulled off, but the author did.

At its essence, REMEMBER ME? is the story of a man found dead, propped against a tree. By everyone's account, the man was in superb health and nothing immediately points to a cause.

Let me start by saying this is not my usual kind of book. I'm a lazy reader. I read romances and easy mysteries. I read the first few pages of this book and thought I wasn't going to like it since it's written in a play style. I persevered though, and I'm so glad I did! The mystery of this story was great. The characters were interesting, and there were loads of secrets, which I do love! After the initial pages you don't notice the style of writing, and soon you are engrossed in the story. Reall ...more

I took my time getting around to reading this book (the Greek Tragedy thing concerned me, I don't like change)! But I needn't have worried, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the way it was constructed. It was full of suspense and kept me guessing throughout. I'll be anxiously awaiting the second instalment in the Faukon Abbey series! ...more

British Mystery as Greek Tragedy?

I thought the conceit of ascribing different chapters to elements of Greek tragedy just didn’t work. I simply ignored them after a while. The ending is not satisfying. Without spoiling it for anyone, I will simply say it left more questions than it answered. Some of the plot seems really contrived. I kept hoping I would like it if I read a little more, but alas, I liked it even less. I will not be reading others in this series.

Great book to read if you're into English murders

Loved this story from start to finish. I hope more are written in this style. Loved it so much. Everyone should read if you like small English town murderers.

What an odd book. All in the present tense told from several different points of view. it was intriguing to work out the solution. A bit of twist at the end.

Review by BookViral
As with the best of crime novels, Remember Me proves a tense and compelling debut as A K Lakelett takes a tried and tested formula and adds her own impressive twist. Creating something innovative in such a popular genre is no mean feat and here she shares her story as a play, cutting between action scenes and chorus. Green, Ford and Carter are deftly drawn and in eschewing the genre tendency towards stoic stereotypes Lakelett delivers rich protagonists who are plausibly imbue
