"Lippman is a writing powerhouse."

--USA Today

New York Times bestselling author and winner of every major prize awarded for crime fiction--including the Edgar(R), Anthony, Shamus, Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards--Laura Lippman brilliantly demonstrates her astonishing agility as a short story writer with Hardly Knew Her. A sterling collection of sixteen suspenseful short fictions and novellas--most set in and around her beloved Baltimore and several featuring her popular series character private investigator Tess Monaghan--Hardly Knew Her was called, "Riveting...One of the best collections released in some time" by the Boston Globe. The Seattle Times says, "something in the short-story form brings out the wicked in Laura Lippman," and this exceptional collection is indisputable proof that Lippman is without peer as she walks boldly on the dark and dangerous side.

Back cover copy

Hailed as one of the best crime fiction writers in America today, New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman now reveals another level of her mastery. Each of these ingenious tales is a gem--including the Edgar and Anthony awards-nominated story, Scratch a Woman, in which Lippman takes us deep into the private world of a high-priced call girl/madam and devoted soccer mom, exploring the mystery of what may, in fact, be written in the blood. Sometimes poignant, sometimes humorous, always filled with delightfully unanticipated twists and reversals, here are enthralling excursions to the dark side from "one of today's most pleasing storytellers" (San Diego Union-Tribune).
