Alarums & Excursions
reviewed on + 475 more book reviews

Interesting story told by a man who doesn't quite remember much about how he wound up in a sanitarium. As his memory returns he snatches bits and pieces of his recent life and tries to figure out his relationship with his younger wife, his daughter-in-law, son, and business associates. You never quite know who is telling the truth, because the narrator doesn't know whom to trust; he just knows someone tried to kill him and maybe succeeded in killing his partner in the plan to produce cheap fuel.
