Frances Shelley Wees
With an introduction by Rosemary Aubert
A disturbing tale of identity and deception set in 1950s Toronto.
That Rafe Jonasonís life didnít end when he smashed up his car was something of a miracle; on that everyone agreed. However, the devoted husband and pillar of the community emerges from hospital a very different man. Coarse and intolerant, this new Rafe drinks away his days, showing no interest in returning to work. Worst of all, he doesnít appear to recognize or so much as remember his loving wife Julie. Tension and suspicion within the coupleís Rosedale mansion grow after it is learned that Rafe wasnít alone in the car that night. Is it that Julie never truly knew her husband? Or might it be that this man isnít Rafe Jonason at all?
Originally published in 1956 by Doubleday, The Keys of My Prison is one of several suspense novels Wees set in Toronto. This Ricochet Books edition marks its return to print after fifty years.
