9780062070784: In Big Trouble: A Tess Monaghan Novel

Tess Monaghan has learned the hard way how to survive on the streets of Baltimore—first as a fearless investigative reporter and lately as a p.i. But a new case is about to take her way out of her element. What begins with a tantalizing shard of a newspaper headline, “In Big Trouble,” above a photograph of an old boyfriend will end far away in another world, where people dress and talk differently . . . and rich people’s games can have lethal consequences. Here where the sun is merciless—and curiosity can kill faster than a rattler’s bite—Tess is going to have to confront her past and, hopefully, live to tell about it. For the answers she seeks about a man she thought she knew may be somehow linked to a murderer who two-steps to a very deadly drummer.

From the Back Cover:

Edgar Award-winner Laura Lippman is developing a reputation as one of the most exciting new detective fiction authors in years. Now she delivers her most suspenseful novel yet, and places Baltimore's Tess Monaghan...

First as a reporter and then as a p.i., Tess Monaghan has learned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Baltimore. But a new case will force her to confront her own past, and a man she loved and lost. It starts when she gets a newspaper photograph of her old boyfriend with a tantalizing shard of headline attached: IN BIG TROUBLE. The answers lie far from Baltimore, deep in a world of good-time music, old-fashioned ambition, and rich people's games. For Tess must find out what happened to a man she thought she knew, to a woman who may have changed him forever, and to the victims of a killer who dances to a different -- and deadly -- drummer.
