I've been a fan of Mr. Donaldson since I discovered his Kit Franklyn books in high school. I was offered an advance copy of The Memory Thief in exchange for my impartial review.  One thing that troubles me with most novels I read these days is their predictability. When a detail is mentioned, it sticks out in my head, glaring as important to the plot later, because it isn't blended well into the story itself. I did not encounter that problem with The Memory Thief. This is a page-turning thriller that kept me second-guessing my own thoughts about what was going to happen. I highly recommend it, and also any others by this author.

Review of The Memory Thief by Don Donaldson 5 stars An engrossing, complex, utterly suspenseful mystery, “The Memory Tree” will appeal to readers who like their mysteries with a lot of meat on the bones. Marti Segerson, psychiatrist, arranges to be hired at a mental institution in rural Tennessee, precisely in order to get close to Vernon Odessa, the killer who slaughtered Marti’s older sister Lee when Marti was just a child. Marti has to go through and around Administrator Oren Quinn, a scientist who is sociopathic enough to be committed himself, and who is quite possibly performing memory experiments which would be both illegal and unethical, utilizing the patients at Gibson. Convoluted but never confusing, suspenseful and emotional, “The Memory Thief” is a rereader, and a fine introduction to the novels of Don Donaldson, an accomplished and riveting writer.
