Low Pressure, Sandra Brown, Fiction.  An engaging who-done-it which takes us back 18 years as a best-selling author tries to remember the murder that she has based her "non-fiction" book upon.  The main characters in the book are furious about the publicity the book brings back to the botched murder investigation.  As Bellamy sifts through the memories of the time of the murder, she comes to realize that she may have witnessed the the crime.  The characters who pop up in these flashes of memory come back to haunt her in present day as well.  Dent, her sister’s boyfriend and main suspect in the murder, shows back up in her life as the pilot who flies her dying father to the hospital in the city, and due to the popularity of the new novel, is furious at her for dragging up his past, and confronts her.  His passion relates to the rest of his life and Bellamy soon realizes this as he pursues her and ultimately protects her from the other people who have come out of the woodwork to keep their pasts as quiet as they have for the past 18 years.
