Description


Discover the first novel in New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman's outstanding Tess Monaghan series When a former Baltimore reporter must solve the murder of a notorious attorney, she discovers Charm City is rife with dark, sordid, and dangerous secrets.

In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety--and his taste for illicit midday trysts--make the case front-page news in every local paper except the Star, which crashed and burned before Abramowitz did.

A former Star reporter who knows every inch of this town--from historic Fort McHenry to the crumbling projects of Cherry Hill--now-unemployed journalist Tess Monaghan also knows the guy the cops like for the killing: cuckolded fiance Darryl "Rock" Paxton. The time is ripe for a career move, so when rowing buddy Rock wants to hire her to do some unorthodox snooping to help clear his name, Tess agrees.

But there are lethal secrets hiding in the Charm City shadows. And Tess's own name could end up on that ever-expanding list of Baltimore dead.
