From Publishers Weekly
The title piece in this smoothly written collection, the first from the bestselling mystery novelist, is a novella. Judith Chase is an American historian working in London and enjoying the courtship of Sir Stephen Hallett, due to become England's next prime minister. Beset by vague fears. Judith consults Dr. Patel, famous for treating Anna Anderson, who claimed she was Anastasia of the Russian royal family. "Retrogressed" by Patel, Judith finds herself in the 17th century, during the English Civil War and Restoration, (of the monarchy), reliving horrors that the author exploits in full measure. This and the four other stories, (three of them previously published in Woman's Day magazine,) amply demonstrate Clark's skill at maintaining suspense by creating nightmarish situations that lie just beneath the surface of ordinary life.

I'm registering this one for the "BookCrossing Convention Race to a Million" Challenge, book #61.

I had not looked at the title of this book very close, so I had no idea this book contained more than one story. I like every one of them though! Very pleasant book :-)

At the end of the splendid meeting in Castricum yesterday, I took this book from the 'left-overs' on the table, to release it on our holiday in England this summer...

I read it myself in Dutch and really liked it!


This book will be released somewhere near Cambridge during our summerholiday in the second half of july. It's one of the 60 books we'll bring along to "spread the words".
