A second outing for feisty Primrose (Rosie) Holland, the ex-pathologist who’s now serving as the Agony Auntie columnist
for the Skipley Chronicle (The Primrose Connection, 1998). This time, she comes to the rescue of her gardener, Shad Lucas, who
has lost his memory but is convinced he killed a woman. Sure enough, his fingerprints are on the knife, the victim's blood is all
over his shirt, and psychic premonitions—the bane of his life—have him recalling the exact moment of her death. Rosie, however,
insists he couldn't have killed anybody, and Det. Supt. Marsh is inclined to agree. Still, how can the facts implicating him be
explained? Josie, in confrontational mode, and her best pal, the bumbling Arthur Prufrock, seek out the real story and discover
that the dead woman was a researcher for You've Been Had, the TV program that recently tried to ambush and embarrass Rosie.
Moreover, the late Jackie Pickering's best friend Debbie, if she can be found, may know who Jackie was planning to exploit next.
Perhaps someone annoyed enough to kill her? Meanwhile, Shad is still confessing to the crime, despite clues that he’s suffering
from false memory syndrome. As Rosie, Prufrock, and Marsh close in on the truth, Shad is tortured by the villain and flees to
the scene of the original crime, the railroad yard, while the real culprit, belatedly, faces an avenging Rosie.
Acerbic Rosie, who never met a crisis she didn't want to collide with, and Shad and his "freaky" second-sight are
thoroughly engaging, although the story itself stumbles, particularly with the appearance of the bad guy and his all-too-transparent
