"The enormity of the Holocaust is no stranger to the contemporary mystery, but seldom has it been used in such a chilling and humane way as Deborah Crombie does in WHERE MEMORIES LIE. Crombie combines a fine plot with a diverse and diverting cast of characters and you have another distinguished achievement. Add multiple levels of emotional satisfaction, and you have a deeply moving novel that transcends genre." - Richmond Times, UK
"Crombie is a master storyteller who weaves a compelling, richly textured tale. The stories are told from a multitude of viewpoints, each voice adding a new perspective until puzzle pieces fall together. Highly recommended." - Boston Globe
