One of The Globe and Mail’s summer must-reads of 2018.


One sudden and violent incident triggers an awakening. A mind that has been shrouded for years by Alzheimer’s disease becomes lucid for a few precious moments — just long enough to open the doors to a secret that has been buried for over thirty years. Dennis Chambers, Chief of Detectives for the city of Washington, D.C., can’t forget the words that were uttered. He is obsessed with trying to unlock his mother’s mind at least one more time. For just a few more words. As he doggedly pursues the elusive and horrifying secret, deadly forces are at work determined to keep it buried forever.


Peter Parkin was born in Toronto, Canada and after studying Business Administration at Ryerson University, he embarked on a thirty-four year career in the business world. He retired in 2007 and has written seven novels, the last four with co-author Alison Darby.


Alison Darby is a life-long resident of the West Midlands region of England. She studied psychology in college and when she’s not juggling a busy work life and writing novels, she enjoys researching astronomy. Alison has two grown daughters and works in the vibrant city of London
