Overview


When a bomb detonates outside a Harvard law school building, killing several including a law student who was counseling Jackie Kelvinski, a woman trying to get out of an abusive marriage, Jackie is afraid that the bomb was set off by her unstable husband. Annie Squires, an investigator helping her out, tries to convince her that's unlikely, but Jackie's not listening. And before the Cambridge police get very far in their investigation to determine who could have committed such a crime, a second deadly bomb explodes, this time at a Cambridge courthouse.

The bomb narrowly misses forensic neuropsychologist Dr. Peter Zak, late for a meeting inside. Peter, suddenly closer to the action that he'd like to be, agrees to help the police by profiling the bomber from some anti-government fliers found at the crime scene. But were they really written by the perpetrator? Or is the bomber's motive more personal, perhaps directed at Jackie, or Peter, or another target? Delving deeper into the mind of the criminal, Peter must work quickly before more lives are lost, including possibly his own.

Guilt, G. H. Ephron's latest thrilling psychological suspense novel, is a fascinating and surprising novel about motive and murder, survivor's guilt and criminal culpabilty--and trying to stay one step ahead of a killer.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dr. Peter Zak, forensic neuropsychologist, tracks down a bomber in his fifth outing. Ephron is the pseudonym for the journalist Hallie Ephron and Don Davidoff, a practicing forensic psychologist. Both live in Massachusetts. Author appearance at the New England Booksellers Association (NEBA). Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Does a serial bomber have a grudge against his estranged wife-or against the American way of life? The first bomb goes off outside Harvard Law School, killing Mary Alice Boudreaux, a student helping Jackie Klevinski get an injunction against her abusive husband Joe. Jackie is terrified that Joe has upped the ante from beating her to blowing up anybody who gets close to her. But she's no more scared than neuropsychiatrist Peter Zak when a second bomb explodes inside the Cambridge Courthouse, sparing Peter's life only because he's running late. Or than Det. Sgt. Joseph MacRae when a pair of rambling rants ("The law prevent Us from pursuing Our destiny") left at the two bomb scenes link them and promise more of the same. There'll be other explosions as the bomber follows an obscure pattern with the police a step behind. Meanwhile, Peter's lover, investigator Annie Squires, struggles to convince a wavering Jackie that Joe can't change. But her attempts to track the long history of Joe's violence by finding his vanished first wife get short shrift from MacRae, who tells her that in the wake of the bombing investigation, they'd have a hard time putting cops on the street even "if the mayor's wife went missing."A powerful double dose of detection, though it lacks the corkscrew invention of Peter's four earlier cases (Obsessed, 2003, etc.).

    An interesting police procedural

    The bomb exploded near a Harvard law school building killing several people including student Mary Alice Boudreaux. The law student had been assisting battered Jackie Kelvinski with ending her marriage and getting an injunction against her abusive husband Joe. Jackie has no doubt that Joe killed these people to get at her counselor and to warn her others will die if she persists though her hired private investigator Anne Squires says that most likely will not come to pass............ A second bomb explodes at a Cambridge courthouse killing more people. Neuropsychiatrist Peter Zak would have been part of the body count except that he was late for an appointment at the courthouse. He wonders if he was the target................ Deliberate evidence left behind by the bomber connects the two deadly incidents insisting more will follow. Detective Sergeant Joseph MacRae leads the investigation in which he obtains Peter¿s reluctant and somewhat frightened help with profiling the culprit, but denies any assistance to Anne who worries her client will return to her husband so that no one else dies................. Zak¿s latest mystery is an interesting police procedural because those ¿fortunate¿ to survive believe they were the target even though no evidence exists to sustain their claim. The story line contains a terrific investigative tale starting several strong characters especially Peter, who is frightened and wants to hide, but does the right thing anyway. Team Ephron provides a wonderful tale in which even those still living are victims consumed with GUILT that not only did they survive, but they were probable cause........... Harriet Klausner
