And When She Was Good, available Aug. 14

“One of the best novelists around, period.”Washington Post
Lippman has enriched literature as a whole.”
Chicago Sun-Times

One of the most acclaimed novelists in America today, Laura Lippman has greatly expanded the boundaries of mystery fiction and psychological suspense with her Tess Monaghan p.i. series and her New York Times bestselling standalone novels (What the Dead Know, Life Sentences, I’d Know You Anywhere, etc.).

With 2011′s The Most Dangerous Thing, the multiple award-winning author— recipient of the Anthony, Edgar®, Shamus, and Agatha Awards, to name but a few — Laura again demonstrates how storytelling is done to perfection. Set once again in the well-wrought environs of Lippman’s beloved Baltimore, it is the shadowy tale of a group of onetime friends forced to confront a dark past they’ve each tried to bury following the death of one of their number. Rich in the compassion and insight into flawed human nature that has become a Lippman trademark while telling an absolutely gripping story, The Most Dangerous Thing will not be confined by genre restrictions, reaching out instead to captive a wide, diverse audience, from Harlan Coben and Kate Atkinson fans to readers of Jodi Picoult and Kathryn Stockett.

If you want to turn it into a lively blind item, that’s on you, but I’ll be very surprised if anyone can guess the writer to whom I’m alluding to here. Except for Alafair Burke, but only because I discussed this with her when it happened. She’s on tour right now, so here’s the deal — if you go see Alafair at one of her tour stops, bring at least twenty friends and buy one hundred copies of Never Tell, then I grant her permission to share the name of this writer with you.  Continue reading
