Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Laura LippmanA??s Tess MonaghanA??first introduced in the classic Baltimore BluesA??becomes involved in a complicated investigation that will force her to question her loyalties. For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend, Crow, brings home a young street kid whoA??s a juvenile con artist and who doesnA??t even realize he holds an important key to the sensational homicide. Tess agrees to protect the boyA??s identity no matter what, especially when one of his friends is killed in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. But as she soon discovers, her ethical decision to protect him has dire consequences. And with federal agents determined to learn the boyA??s name at any cost, Tess finds out just how far even official authorities will go to get what they want. It isnA??t long before Tess finds herself facing felony charges. To make matters worse, Crow has gone into hiding with his young protA©gA©. So Tess canA??t deliver the kid to investigators even if she wants to. Now her only recourse is to get to the heart of the sordid and deadly affair while they're all still free...and still breathing.

Professional reviews

"Linda Emond does a beautiful Southern accent, even if it sounds more genteel than ghetto. Baltimore P.I. Tess Monaghan's boyfriend, Crow, is on the run with a homeless black teenaged boy he's befriended. Emond is a little wide of the mark on Lloyd, and on some of Maryland cracker types they meet. But this does nothing to slow down the expertly plotted action as Tess tries to stay a jump ahead of the villains and Lippman two jumps ahead of the reader; both succeed handily. I particularly like Emond's Wilma Yousif, grieving widow of a high-profile murder victim, whom you somehow know instantly is mean as a snake. Pace and production are terrific, too. B.G.
