Summary
"An elderly man with dementia, once acquitted of a terrible murder and suspected in many others, is removed from his assisted-living facility by a woman he does not recognize--a woman who claims to be his long-lost daughter. She takes him on a road trip across Texas, searching for answers to her own burning questions. Following the paths of vanished women, she attempts to discover the truth about this man. Does he really have dementia? Is he a murderer? What secrets lurk in the dark corners of his disintegrating mind?"--

Booklist Review: "Heaberlin's mysterious protagonist her real name is only revealed at the book's end believes that Carl Feldman, an elderly man acquitted of multiple murders, is her father and that the Texas road trip she's taking him on will allow her to discover if he's really a killer. In reality, the woman believes that Feldman, who is either faking dementia or is, to quote him, a pure grade lunatic, killed her sister years before. She's determined to put her obsession to rest by finding out the truth, but it's tough: Carl might be old, but he's still scary, and, as the trip unwinds, it becomes clear that he may not be the only malevolent force she faces. Heaberlin's spot-on depiction of mental anguish, her careful creation of characters who are mean and troubled yet compelling, and an unexpected twist at the end make this a winner; suggest it especially to patrons who like a Texas backdrop and or the work of Megan Abbott.--Verma, Henrietta Copyright 2018 Booklist"
