In False Guilt by Peter Fritze, Paul Tews was accused of the murder of his friend Art fifteen years ago. He was never found guilty and he tried to forget his past in every way possible. But when his old friend Louis met him one last time before liver cancer kills him, his past came back to haunt him in his memories and in his nightmares. Also, he meets with Grace. She was the one he wanted. But she ignored and rejected him. Now she is back and invites him to Rome for some days of bliss and heated passion. However, as soon as he reaches Rome, he starts feeling as if someone is watching him. He is continuously asked about Art and his murder. Something does not feel right. As secrets are exposed and friends turn out to be enemies, Paul must save himself and return to the security of his home. But can he leave Rome without knowing who really killed Art? Can he go back in peace when he feels that someone might hunt him and end his life too?

False Guilt is no doubt the most unconventional mystery, and I mean that as a compliment! You do not find many writers like Peter Fritze because they are one of a kind. Instead of bringing us a garden variety mystery, Fritze has written the story in a Toni Morrison-like fashion. I felt so many similarities between Morrison and Fritze, it gave me comfort to know that the new generation of writers is just as good and that future generations of readers will not lack good pieces of literature. I really enjoyed reading this mystery/thriller.
