What happens when your past catches up with you? If what you did years ago, shows up now?
A traditional detective story, a classic whodunit, written in a bit different format. A gripping tale about deep hidden secrets of so-called love, set in a small town of Faukon Abbey near Exeter, in Devon, England.
A seemingly ordinary man is found dead in Tersel Woods, with no identification, not even a mobile phone. Who was he? And who wanted him dead and why? Faukon Abbey CID officers, DI Greene and DC Ford and their friend Carter, a journalist at the Abbey Chronicle work hard to uncover all hidden tragedies, murder being just one. They find out what really happens behind the elegant facades – where crimes go unseen and unreported because they don’t happen to people like us – – Or do they?
Q: What’s with a play? It’s a detective story, right?
A: Yes, it is a regular detective story, if a bit different. I wrote it to allow for multiple people to tell the story, the story of crimes we don’t want to talk about.
Q: And what’s with the poetry?
A: Poems allow saying a lot with few words. There are just a few of poems in the book.
“As with the best of crime novels, Remember Me? proves a tense and compelling debut as A K Lakelett takes a tried and tested formula and adds her own impressive twist. Creating something innovative in such a popular genre is no mean feat and here she shares her story as a play, cutting between action scenes and chorus. – Remember Me is definitely recommended!
Green, Ford and Carter are deftly drawn and in eschewing the genre tendency towards stoic stereotypes Lakelett delivers rich protagonists who are plausibly imbued with the depth and characteristics of their roles. This makes them feel both authentic and refreshingly original and with an enticing plot she manages to maintain intrigue and a satisfying balance between suspense and transparency which armchair detectives will undoubtedly appreciate. The pace is measured, the twists are well pitched, we become involved in her narratives web of mystery, but more importantly she’s built the foundations for what appears to be an innovative and promising new series.” BookViral
“All is not as it seems. – Set in the present day, there is a murder, which is investigated by the police on one hand and a local journalist on the other. The idea of writing a modern book based on the ancient Greek plays with a chorus, and action from two different viewpoints is intriguing and innovative. The chorus is that of the murderer, whose identity is revealed at the end.” Lucinda E Clark, Reader’s Favorite
