Tabula Rasa is not only a gripping and entertaining crime novel but also a sensitive, warm exploration of the deeper issues of what defines a family and an individual. Arson investigator Billy Nightingale and his brother-in-law, Officer Sebastian Bly, are called in to investigate a house fire that killed two young children. The discovery of a baby hiding underneath the porch put Billy and Sebastian on the trail of a murderous mother while Sebastian and his wife, Annie, raise baby Meredith without revealing her dangerous and frightening past. Meredith grows up to be a promising young ballerina fueled in part by the fictional past that Sebastian and Annie have invented for her. But the truth threatens their charmed family circle as Merry's biological mother returns to finish what she started.More
"Tabula Rasa is a stunning novel. It shocks and revolts you, and then restores your faith in humanity. Reuben writes not only of fire, but with fire." (Dorothy Salisbury Davis)

No this one did not do it for me. I loved the Skirted man, and I thought this was Billy's story. Alas, he had very little spot light, but what he did have was great. This is really Mary's story. It did not have the flow of the Skirted man. I wanted to stop, but I kept thinking author would get better. Ending has a twister, but whole subject to alarming for me.
No more of this author for me. I only purchased this as the late great Anna Fields read it.
Billy...all of ms Fields men voices are great for me
subject too dark
