ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN WENDY WALKER

Jenny’s wounds have healed. An experimental treatment has removed the memory of a horrific and degrading attack. She is moving on with her life.
That was the plan. Except it’s not working out. Something has gone. The light in the eyes. And something was left behind. A scar. On her lower back. Which she can’t stop touching. And she’s getting worse. Not to mention the fact that her father is obsessed with finding her attacker and her mother is in toxic denial.
It may be that the only way to uncover what’s wrong is to help Jenny recover her memory. But even if it can be done, pulling at the threads of her suppressed experience will unravel much more than the truth about her attack.
And that could destroy as much as it heals.
MY REVIEW
You can erase the memory. But you cannot erase the crime.
Doug Hastings had invited Jenny Kramer to a party. Sixteen year old Jenny is brutally raped. This is a story that had been reconstructed with forensic evidence, witness accounts, criminal psychologist profiles and disjointed fragmented scraps of memory Jenny was left with after the treatment. They say it is a miracle treatment to have the most horrible trauma erased from your mind. This story is orignal, and very, very clever.

  1. Sounds interesting but too frightening for me! Good review.

  2. Thank you for stopping by. I love to hear what other readers and writers think. But yes I agree it is quite upsetting reading thrillers about rape.

  3. Sounds like a horror thriller and it probably gives an extended view into physical and emotional trauma. If it comes across in a clinical way, it is better for the reader, if not I am sure many women would have problems going to sleep. We do see these traumas on TV, in the movies and I wonder why reading about them is or becomes much more personal, somehow. Yet, that is what reading does, it makes things real.

    • I love reading crime thrillers. My heart goes out to crime authors as most of them put a lot of hard work in to the research. Some readers don’t understand just how hard it is to write characters and plots. My reading is a mixture. I totally love reading your stories too.
