From the Author:

Baltimore Blues: Baltimore's first mystery series?
How is it that Baltimore, which plays host to the NBC show "Homicide," did not have its own mystery series until now? (It has had, however, the 43 Light Street, the romance suspense novels published by Harlequin, and its share of one-time appearances in thrillers.) I don't know. But even if there had been a dozen Baltimore-based books, I would have set my debut here. Baltimore is what I know and what I love. Troubling, tormenting and strangely beautiful. I have lived here, on and off, for 30 years. Unlike my character, Tess Monaghan, I've managed to hold onto my job at the only newspaper in town. But stay tuned. That could change after the next book, "Charm City," comes out next fall. It's about a one-newspaper town, a retired racing greyhound and a story that's too hot not to cool down. And now a bit of Baltimore trivia: Even when H.L. Mencken had New York jobs, such as editing the American Mercury, he kept his home in Baltimore. He always said he couldn't imagine a better place to live. Who am I to argue? Laura Lippman, jroll@erols.com

Book Description:

In trying to prove a friend's innocence PI Tess Monaghan gets more than she bargained for . . . From the author of WILDE LAKE.
