When private investigator Tess Monaghan runs into a TV crew, she doesn't expect an assignment. Keeping a spoiled movie princess under wraps may be more than she can handle. This is not Tess's world. And these are not her kind of people. But the fish-out-of-water P.I. is abruptly pulled back in by murder. Suddenly a wall of secrets is in danger of toppling, leaving a catastrophe that threatens the people Tess cares about . . . and the city she loves.

Laura Lippman grew up in Baltimore and returned to her hometown in 1989 to work as a journalist. After writing seven books while still a full-time reporter, she left the Baltimore Sun to focus on fiction. She is the author of eleven Tess Monaghan books, including Baltimore Blues, Another Thing to Fall, and The Girl in the Green Raincoat; five stand-alone novels, including Every Secret Thing, To the Power of Three, What the Dead Know, and Life Sentences; and one short story collection, Hardly Knew Her. She is also the editor of another story collection, Baltimore Noir. Lippman has won numerous awards for her work, including the Edgar, Quill, Anthony, Nero Wolfe, Agatha, Gumshoe, Barry, and Macavity.From AudioFile:
Linda Emond has her Baltimore accents down, which means she brings delightful texture to Lippman's P.I. Tess Monaghan mysteries, which are so city-specific. When Tess rows her scull into the middle of a dawn film shoot for one of Baltimore's many television series (two of the best real ones are created by Lippman's husband) she winds up employed by the producer to find out who is sabotaging the production. The background is drawn with an insider's assurance; the plot is full of Lippman's trademark Baltimore characters, often funny and usually twisted in some unexpected way. Emond does a particularly crafty job with the Britney/Lindsay superbrat star, Selene, who turns out to be much more than meets the eye; but it's all voiced with subtlety and wit. Great fun.
