Product description


As in Baltimore Blues and Charm City, dialogue is on the mark, accompanied by lively observations about female entrepreneurship, adoption, foster home rackets, and quirky Baltimore natives and neighborhoods. A bittersweet, perfectly plausible ending winds things up (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

One of America's most important literary voices (IRISH TIMES)

Laura Lippman continues to push the envelope of modern crime-writing (Harlan Coben)

Lippman is a writing powerhouse (USA TODAY)

Every time Laura Lippman comes out with a new book, I get chills because I know I am back in the hands of the master. She is simply a brilliant novelist, an unflinching chronicler of life in America right now (Gillian Flynn)

One of the best novelists around, period (WASHINGTON POST)

Lippman has enriched literature as a whole (CHICAGO SUN-TIMES)

Lippman is the closest writer America has to Ruth Rendell (Stephen King)

Laura Lippman is among the select group of novelists who have invigorated the crime fiction arena with smart, innovative, and exciting work (George Pelecanos)

Ably demonstrates why Lippman has been sweeping up the American crime awards. A gripping sense of place and a great new sleuthette make this a page-turner (GUARDIAN)

Book Description

All PI Tess Monaghan has to do is find some witnesses - that is, until the witnesses start dying . . . From the author of SUNBURN and LADY IN THE LAKE
Winner of Agatha Award for Best Novel
