From the New York Times bestselling author of Sunburn
‘Mesmerizing. Lippman writes with clarity and power.’ Stephen King
Heloise is a single mum who runs her own business and keeps herself to herself.
But Heloise’s business is one that takes place in discreet hotel rooms. For the right money, she can be the woman of your dreams.
But now her accountant is starting to ask questions, her long-time bodyguard is hinting at new dangers, and in the local news, a so-called suburban madam has been found dead in her car.
With nothing as it seems, can Heloise secure the safety of herself and her son?
‘One of the finest writers in America.’ Mark Billingham
‘I love her books.’ Harlan Coben
‘What a knock-out.’ Daily Mail
When the barrier between Heloise’s two lives starts to crumble, the results are mesmerizing. Lippman writes with clarity and power.
Laura Lippman is not just the author of top-notch psychological thrillers, she is one of the finest writers in America. Simple as that.
What a knock-out she is. A really superb multifaceted storyteller whose Baltimore based crime and suspense novels are so much more than mere whodunits.
Gripping . . . The tightly constructed prose carries the reader easily along from chapter to chapter all the while building tension. There’s a twist in the tale, too.
It’s no surprise to find Ms. Lippman writing about a smart, capable woman who is overqualified for what she does. Ms. Lippman’s own career might be described that way.
A gritty story, vivid characters and a fast-moving, twisting plot.
