Description

Tess's case in this terrific novel is a series of unsolved homicides that may or may not be overlooked cases of domestic violence. After a while, Tess realises she's on the trail of a single, serial killer. But the Maryland State Police are convinced that the killer she's looking for is dead and therefore that he's no threat. But he is. And his target is Tess herself. There are two voices in the novel: Tess Monaghan who is feisty, funny and cool and, as yet, unaware of the serial killer who is stalking her and the chilling voice of the killer himself. In addition, Tess is having to attend anger counselling classes following a brilliant first scene. This is a book that will be rewarding to Laura Lippman's fans but a good starting point for those who have never read her. Her biggest book yet - sure to win her prizes, yet more acclaim and a wider readership.show more
