Content descriptions

General Note:
E.V. Adamson is the pseudonym of Andrew Wilson, the novelist, biographer and journalist.
Summary, etc.:
"With its grassy hills and breathtaking city views, London's Hampstead Heath is the perfect place to spend an afternoon with friends and loved ones--and on an unseasonably warm Valentine's Day, the lawns are especially full. So when an aggressive lovers' quarrel breaks out, there's an audience of park goers nearby to hear the shouts traded back and forth, and to watch as the violence escalates suddenly to murder, then suicide. For the five strangers who observed the gruesome act, the memory of the gore is unshakable. But one of them--disgraced journalist Jen Hunter--is compelled to question the truth of what she thought she saw. Are the facts of the case plain as day, or were they obscured, in the moment, by the glaring sunlight? As she mounts an obsessive investigation for a seemingly-impossible alternative, the lives of the other witnesses begin to unravel, each in its own particular way. Soon one thing becomes clear: the crime they witnessed was more terrible, more twisted, and more far-reaching than they ever could have imagined."--Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* E. V. Adamson is the pseudonym of award-winning journalist and author Andrew Wilson, who has written four acclaimed biographies and four Agatha Christie novels featuring the Queen of Crime as a sleuth. Five strangers—Or are they?— witness a brutal murder and a suicide on an "impossibly bright day," a Valentine's Day, in fact, on London's Hampstead Heath. One of the witnesses, disgraced journalist Jen Hunter, gives a full police statement, certain of what she saw, but] then begins receiving anonymous tweets that make her doubt her recollection of the event. There was a champagne bottle, smashed; there was shouting, a man killed a woman and then killed himself. Right? What about the mysterious jogger who passed by without stopping and the teenager who fled the scene? With a friend's encouragement, Jen decides to interview the other witnesses and write an article about the event to both revive her failed career and to validate her own memory. Brilliant parallel narratives by Jen and her friend Bex reveal their delusions and obsessions, within an airtight plot worthy of Christie herself. Readers can expect to change their minds about the characters with each chapter, and a stunning conclusion brings it all to a satisfying end. Highly recommended for suspense fans looking for something new and different. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
