Bad Memory by Jim Cliff is a thrilling murder mystery about a decades-old cold case. Jake Abraham is a private investigator in Chicago. When Dr. Jane Parker comes to see him about a supposed suicide that had taken place twenty-three years ago, he is surprised but willing to take the case. Apparently, Jane had been a witness to the event, but due to the circumstances of her presence at the scene, she held back the information. Now the conditions of her situation have changed, and Jane is willing to come forward and give her testimony; not of a suicide, but a murder. She also claims that there is another witness who is now ready to cooperate. Jake begins his inquiries. After so many years have passed, and having only Jane's notes and the vague memory of the other witness, the outcome of his investigation is questionable. But as his investigation progresses, Jake ascertains that he is being followed. Who is so concerned by the information that Jake is gleaning that they are surveilling his investigation? Is Jake onto something dangerous?

Bad Memory by Jim Cliff is a riveting private eye murder mystery. It is a thrilling novel with an absorbing plot. The open and shut suicide cold case turning into a decades-old murder case is intriguing and compelling. Jake is a great protagonist with an easy manner and a likable character. Jake's special investigation is action-filled and stimulating. The antagonist remaining undisclosed until the final chapter is an excellent diversion. With impressive detective work and unexpected villains, this is a sensational sleuth mystery. A fantastic book, with a great plot.
