9780062070791: Sugar House: A Tess Monaghan Novel

Baltimore local Tess Monaghan thought she knew the Sugar House—the abandoned factory that remains a stubborn and defiant legacy of the city’s past—until a client named Ruthie asks the newspaperwoman-turned-p.i. to investigate a year-old “Jane Doe” murder and its grim aftermath. Ruthie’s low-life brother, Henry, confessed to killing a teenage runaway over a bottle of glue—and, a month into his prison term, met the same fate as his victim. Following a precious few tantalizing clues, Tess’s hunt for the truth is leading her from Baltimore’s exclusive Inner Harbor to the city’s seediest neighborhoods—a hunt that turns deadly with the shocking discovery of the runaway’s true identity. Suddenly, a supposedly solved murder case is turning up newer, fresher corpses and newer, scarier versions of the Sugar House—places that look sweet and safe . . . but only from the outside.

When Tess Monaghan agrees to talk to Ruthie Dembrow, she senses she ll regret it. If there s anything Tess has learned in her work both as a newspaper reporter and then as a PI, it s to trust your instincts. Still, she can t deny she s intrigued when Ruthie asks her to investigate the fatal stabbing of her brother, Henry, while he was locked away for murdering a teenage runaway over a bottle of glue. Henry s death at the hands of fellow convicts doesn t surprise Tess, but what does is that he was convicted for murdering a Jane Doe -something that rarely happens in the judicial system.
