Just a few hours before she is murdered a foreign stranger claims she is a close relative of investigative filmmaker Maggie MacGowen.It is a truism that it's a wise child who knows its father. The same can apply to a mother since we must believe and take for granted as true what our family tells us about our own early years. But what if you remember places you've never been speak a language you've never been taught? What if your nearest and dearest are all involved in a conspiracy to cover up your true origins? In The Paramour's Daughter Maggie MacGowen is thrown into this parallel universe trying to remember the ghosts of comfort fear or love from her earliest years. She must question everything she's ever known about herself and her life and deal with a large cast of previously unknown blood relatives some of whom may not have affectionate feelings for the little girl who vanished so long ago. Especially when large sums of euros are involved...Edgar-winner Hornsby's enthralling seventh Maggie MacGowen mystery takes the documentary filmmaker to France. . . Readers will almost be able to taste the food and drink the author so vividly describes.Publishers Weekly (7/19/10)
