An eighty-something man, Paul Jacobson, wakes up in a room he doesn't recognize and has to cope. He is told he has 'short-term memory loss.' To be honest I kept waiting for a miracle cure, but, the character remained honest. He has a severe disability...he forgets the last 24hrs. He even forgets faces and names. I actually stopped reading and gave thought to how this disability would affect me and Paul handles it with a rough tone and some sarcasm, in other words, he handles it very well. The book is set in Hawaii which adds color itself.
Venturing out of his room, Paul luckily is placed in the dining room of this retirement home with two other men. One, Henry is a genius with the condition of Asperger's Syndrome, and the other, Meyer, a retired Attorney, becomes his friend.
To make the transition more difficult, Paul realized there was a bunch of used bottles in his apartment so he makes a trip to the trash shoot. When he discovers a body inside the shoot, Paul's life becomes even more fragile. The Detective figures Paul is the killer.
It is up to Paul and Meyer to figure out who actually did the killing before it is too late. Paul also has a family, a new girl-friend, and even Henry giving help.
At times this book was funny, at times it was sad to see how elderly persons lives change as the body slows down, and at times it was a super mystery.
I'm glad I found these books. I have a delightful time of reading ahead of me.
the situations paul jacobson gets into are hilariuos and unusual.
they fit together like braided hair.
meyer, henry, and paul seem like men you'd like to know.
jennifer and austin are cool, too.
mr. jacabson's short term memory loss is a type I had never heard of except for victims of head trauma.
it makes the story interesting.
