Product description

Review

Shamefully late in the day, I've caught up with the acclaimed US novelist Laura Lippman, and what a knock-out she is ... This is a real riveting suspense - a humdinger of a book (DAILY MAIL)

Laura Lippman is best known for her excellent Tess Monaghan PI series, but she occasionally writes a stand-alone novel and WHAT THE DEAD KNOW is one of her best (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

An excellent mystery and a thoughtful exploration of the nature and effects of grief and loss (GUARDIAN)

Laura Lippman heightens the tension without any savagery or melodrama, while at the same time exploring the nature of family relationships in all their misery and necessity. WHAT THE DEAD KNOW is an impressive and engaging novel (TLS)

Hypnotic ... contains echoes of Dennis Lehane's SHUTTER ISLAND and Alice Sebold's THE LOVELY BONES but surpasses them (Washington Post)

Book Description

Thirty years ago, two sisters disappeared without trace. Now a woman has turned up, claiming to be one of the missing girls... From the author of WILDE LAKE.
