Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312192495, Hardcover)Diary entries tell the convoluted story and reveal the deepest secrets of a dead woman and her killer in this dark, suspenseful novel of a dysfunctional British family. Zoe is a successful television producer whose grief following the sudden death of her infant daughter is assuaged by the ministrations of a self-styled healer who insinuates herself into Zoe's life with alarming results. When Zoe is killed, suspicion falls on her husband Michael, whose own journal continues where Zoe's left off. Busy trying to care for their two teenage sons, he is stunned when the police arrest him for Zoe's murder, and he puts himself in the capable hands of his brother-in-law, a successful London barrister who takes the boys to live in the country. Soon, Laura, Zoe's sister, becomes increasingly uneasy at the strange behavior the boys exhibit. As the killer's own journal reveals, there are secrets in this family no one suspects, including the truth behind baby Beth's crib death. Fans of Frances Fyfield and Minette Walters will appreciate Jones's careful plotting, compelling character development, and fascinating portrait of psychological disintegration. --Jane Adams
