Description

When private eye Tess Monaghan finds herself literally on a collision course with the makers of a TV series being shot in her native Baltimore, it's not only her introduction to the surreal world of televison drama, but also the beginning of a case that only a crazed scriptwriter could have dreamed up for her. Selene Waites, the glamorous but brittle young star of the show, has been the victim of a twisted stalker, and executive producer Flip Tumulty thinks Tess would be just the person to bodyguard her during filming. At first, Selene seems like a spoiled kook out of central casting and the babysitting job a PR sham, but as Tess gets sucked deeper into the show's labyrinthine web of deceptions and betrayals, she soon finds she's unwittingly become the main feature in a storyline featuring murder, kidnapping and sickening obsession.show more

'Entertaining as hell, as you know that Lippman's take on the world of television drama, on-location shooting and Hollywood's interpretation of Baltimore is spot-on' WWW.REVIEWINGTHE EVIDENCE.COM 'An intoxicating fusion of sharp psychology and gripping writing' SAINSBURYS MAGAZINE 'Lippman's particular strength lies in her sharp, witty portrayal of her cast of characters' THE TIMES 'It's elegantly written, adroitly plotted and full of wonderfully realised characters' -- Susanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Another Thing To Fall shapes up as a near-perfect summer read. Engaging and clever and with characters you care about, this book should please Lippman fans and casual crime readers alike' SHOTS 'Lippman's writing is, as usual, effortlessly stylish, there is plenty of local colour, and Monaghan's witty humanity provides a wonderful foil to a group of image-obsessed people who will do anything to further their careers' -- Laura Wilson GUARDIAN 'Lippman writes with crisp authority about Baltimore and the strange universe that lies behind the scenes of a television series. She's excellent at narrative too, and best of all her characters have the priceless ability to edge their way into the reader's imagination. All in all, it's an impressive performance' -- Andrew Taylor SPECTATOR 'Award-winning Laura LIppman's acclaimed series featuring private eye Tess Monaghan continues in the superb thriller, Another Thing to Fall' THE LADY 'Laura Lippman is the undisputed queen of Baltimore crime fiction' MYSTERY SCENE 'Laura Lippman is one of the premier crime fiction writers working today.
