This is a murder mystery that somehow incorporates Alice in Wonderland! This book is set in the not too distant future mostly in Albany, NY (darn these years are going FAST) where a pill has been invented that makes people forget. Now this is not so bad for people who have experienced traumatic episodes in their life, like soldiers for whom it was actually created. But when a star witness to a double murder takes this pill she can no longer remember what happened and that leaves Detective Hannah McCabe scrambling to find the killer. Meanwhile a Broadway actress is murdered. This actress has the nickname of The Red Queen because she collects everything "Alice". How are these three murders connected-it is up to Hannah McCabe to figure this out--not easy at all!! Just remember this while you are reading "What goes around comes around"--That's all folks. I did enjoy this book and am looking forward to the second in the series.
About the Book: (from Amazon)
Frankie Bailey introduces readers to a fabulous new protagonist and an Alice in Wonderland-infused crime in this stunning mystery, which kicks off an exciting new series set in the near future.
The year is 2019, and a drug used to treat soldiers for post-traumatic stress disorder, nicknamed "Lullaby," has hit the streets. Swallowing a little pill erases traumatic memories, but what happens to a criminal trial when the star witness takes a pill and can't remember the crime? When two women are murdered in quick succession, biracial police detective Hannah McCabe is charged with solving the case. In spite of the advanced technology, including a city-wide surveillance program, a third woman is soon killed, and the police begin to suspect that a serial killer is on the loose. But the third victim, a Broadway actress known as “The Red Queen,” doesn’t fit the pattern set by the first two murders.
With the late September heat sizzling, Detective Hannah McCabe and her colleagues on the police force have to race to find the killer in a tangled web of clues that involve Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, and Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Fast-paced and original, this is a one-of-a-kind mystery from an extremely talented crime writer.
