    Someone from the Past

    Then I felt his warm hand grow cold, it was as if he had been reminded of death. He wasn’t looking at me any more, but obliquely, across the restaurant.

    I turned round.

    Sarah has been receiving threatening anonymous letters seemingly from a former lover. Just one day after revealing this information to her co- worker Nancy, Sarah is shot and found in her bedroom by one of her past flames, Donald. Desperate to clear any evidence of Donald’s presence at the scene for her own infatuations, Nancy finds herself as the key suspect when she is discovered in the apartment.

    As the real killer uses the situation to their advantage, Margot Bennett crafts a tense and nuanced story through flashbacks to Sarah’s life and loves in this Gold- Dagger-award-winning story of deceit and murder.
