Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Just received this excellent review from "Readers' Favorite"
Reviewed by Suzanne Cowles for Readers' Favorite

Alzheimer's: Dutiful Daughter (A Liz Roberts Mystery) by Don Canaan and Shawn Graves is a fast-paced 23-chapter mystery/sleuth fiction story about Laura, an accountant, who is the caregiver for her parents. Laura has endured a lifetime with an unloving schizophrenic mother and a controlling father who has developed dementia. After a failed marriage and begrudgingly tending to her demanding father's needs (in more ways than one), Laura does the unthinkable. She commits a bone-chilling crime by leaving him alone to wander aimlessly at the county fair.


The story revolves around her erratic choices from that moment on in a desperate quest to reclaim her own personal life. She grovels to her ex-husband, who has remarried, in a shameless attempt to restore some order to her messed-up reality. Laura's future is racked with regrets and a loss of second chances as she faces deep-seated anger towards her parents who have ruined her existence. Her cold actions lead investigators on a search for the truth that takes them right back to the dutiful daughter.


Don Canaan and Shawn Graves combine their creativity to mesmerize the reader with Fresno crazy town, where symptoms of Alzheimer's contrast with the lonely world of Laura. It is unclear in Alzheimer's: Dutiful Daughter if she has lost her mind from being around sick people all the time or if there is premeditated malicious intent at work. Each twist and turn further complicates the plot with Detective Liz Roberts in hot pursuit. While on the case, Liz discovers many unsettling things about Laura's family 

About the Author

Don Canaan went from a Bronx tenement to success in television news film, immigration to Israel, return to the U.S. and then print journalism. He edited news film and documentaries for NBC News in New York, receiving a joint editorial commendation (as Donald Swerdlow) for Producer Fred Freed’s “American White Paper: Organized Crime in the United States.” In 1974, Canaan immigrated to Israel as part of an American group planning to found and settle the new city of Yamit in the Sinai, north of El Arish (an area that is now part of Egypt). Ohio State University's School of Journalism offered Canaan an offer to earn a master's degree while serving as an instructor in its TV news workshop. Canaan was later hired as staff writer and photographer for The American Israelite in Cincinnati where he enterprised many stories. His series, "Jews in Ohio's Prisons: Does Anybody Care?" received first place recognition for best weekly journalism in Ohio from the State of Ohio Bar Association.

Shawn Graves was born and raised in the Central San Joaquin Valley of California where she now lives in Exeter with her youngest daughter and a slightly psychotic cat. Except for a few years living in the Napa Valley and then Oregon, she has resided in the same area for her entire life. Graves is the mother of four adult children and grandmother to two adorable grandsons. For the past twenty-five years, this former welfare mother has worked as a nurse in a variety of settings; hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, jails. And for the past ten years, has been employed for a county social services program. Graves is an avid reader, political and news junkie, crime show addict. and active participant in her church, As a young, single mom, she determined that nursing was a practical career to pursue and this has proven to be very satisfying. But in recent years, Graves has rediscovered her old passion for writing and indulges it at every opportunity.
