About the Book

Winner of the eDunnit Award (Best Crime Novel in e book) 2017

'WILDE LAKE is a knockout, you should get right on that.' STEPHEN KING

The brilliant, moving and psychologically complex new standalone novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of After I'm Gone and What the Dead Know.

Luisa Brant has just been elected State's Attorney, a job her revered father once held, and is prosecuting her first murder, by a homeless man on a woman to whom he had seemingly no connection. However, as Luisa investigates, she is startled to learn that this murder might have its roots in a violent event in the past involving her own family. And that maybe no one - her precious father, her brother, her late mother - is quite who she thought...

In an acclaimed modern twist on To Kill a Mockingbird, Laura Lippman once again proves herself to be one of crime writing's most thrilling reads.
