When retired family doctor Sam Moore's old girlfriend is murdered in a local hotel, the police suspect his involvement. The coroner, a former med school colleague whose husband is about to desert her, reveals that she had a crush on Sam in med school. When she is strangled the next day in her own morgue, Sam is once again in the hot seat.
Sam's world falls apart when he returns home to find a family member killed in the laundry room, stabbed with his own garden shears. Rocketed into a world of denial and temporary insanity, Sam faces his worst fear, and is locked up in the very same psych ward he was in when his brother Bill died fifty years ago. Sam is determined to ask his long dead brother to help him. Billy, who communicates through a little green marble, has the ability to propel Sam through time and has helped Sam unwrap baffling mysteries in the past.
Sam's plan: to change time, and bring his loved one back to life.

I have read or listened to nearly every one of Aaron Paul Lazar's books, and this one was the best of them. I was captivated and could not wait to get through the entire story. This is a must read/listen! I would highly recommend the entire Green Marble Mysteries series and to read/listen to them in order. You will be invested into the characters and fall in love with them and with Sam Moore. Enjoy!
The plot twists in this book totally took me by surprise. When Sam gets blindsided by tragedy, he has to try to solve the mystery and set things right while contending with his own emotions, his past, his hard-to-control visions, etc, etc.
I was blown away by how well Lazar wrote Sam's inner thoughts as he loosens his grip on reality in the aftermath of unbearable loss. Very, very believable, heart-breaking but not shlocky.
Top-notch narration here by Robert King Ross.
