Virtual reality based on real memories

The story is from the point of view of an FBI agent who has been widowed recently. She left the UK as a child and has returned to a small town where a killing spree took place - on the same day that a lone gunman acted out a mass murder in the USA. A coincidence? She's searching for links between the two. There are odd events, out of the blue, that take the mundane into a strange realm - momentarily - then to a quite dazzling climax. The ending is satisfying but I had to revisit the last chapter to fully appreciate what had happened. Priest doesn't do straight forward narratives but that's why I like his books. The audiobook is spoiled a bit by the American narrator's English accent, which were off-kilter.
