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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Tess—funny, smart, empathetic as hell, and a colorful, irreverent storyteller makes a wonderful companion for this tale, in which disturbing vandalism and a stalker are just the harbingers of much worse problems.” 

    Seattle Times

  • “You get everything in this book. There’s a really good mystery which is almost secondary to the interaction of the characters—Hollywood’s penchant for confusing illusion and reality is beautifully done—and the witty dialogue, full of smart film references, is totally believable.” 

    Globe and Mail

  • “Linda Emond has her Baltimore accents down, which means she brings delightful texture to Lippmans P.I. Tess Monaghan mysteries…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.”

  • “Tess’s latest leaves you fully satisfied but looking forward to next time.”  

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arlene Richards | 2/6/2014

    " I liked this one better than many mysteries. This is a new author for me and I would read her again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cher | 1/26/2014

    " very well done but I couldn't find a reason to care "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenneth Funk | 1/15/2014

    " This was my least favorite of the Tess Monaghan series. It was much short than the rest and for some reason the story did not quite resonate with me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/5/2014

    " Definitely not one of Laura Lippman's best. It felt like Tess was barely involved with this one and overall I felt is was too involved with details of a TV production and light on details of a murder mystery. But Lippman has enough credit with me that I"ll keep reading her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/24/2013

    " Life on the set filming a TV show can be down right deadly especially when you have people conviving to get ahead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 12/8/2013

    " Laura Lippman is married to a producer of THe Wire, and she has woven her home life into this book--I like Tess Monahan, and I have liked her as a protagonist over time, and this is a good installment in the series--the plot is not too far fetched, and the book is well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 11/3/2013

    " It is interesting to see the character Tess development. In this book it foreshadows her motherly instinicts but at the same time keeps her adventurous side with her relationship with Lloyd who is Crow's ward. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cinhon | 10/3/2013

    " I really like her books; this just wasn't my favorite. The plot wasn't quite as "tight" as some of her other books, and there was very little interaction with Crow and none with Aunt Kitty. Sometimes it even felt to me like Tess herself was kind of missing... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 8/19/2013

    " A behind-the-scenes look at the making of a TV show intertwined with a mystery by top-notch writer Laura Lippman. She just keeps getting better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 7/26/2013

    " There's a certain sense of accomplishment to making it through a series: I liked this series overall, though I can't say I wish it would go on and on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 10/26/2012

    " Another Tess Monaghan mystery. I love this series! This was not my favorite book of the series. Readable but not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Woodside (Niewiera_ | 7/19/2012

    " Always enjoy the Tess Monaghan series... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tanya | 6/14/2012

    " I had a REALLY hard time getting into this book. The story was ok, it was just to slow for me. I guess with certain things there were to many details, details that bored me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa_friedrich | 2/17/2012

    " I thought this story was a quick moving, entertaining read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phyllis | 1/6/2012

    " I have read most of the books in this series, and this one is one of the best. Highly recommended! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 8/28/2011

    " Good, but the weakest of those I have previously read by her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dot | 3/8/2011

    " This is one of a series about a female PI in Baltimore. The plot involves the shooting of a TV movie and revolves around the originator of the idea for the story. Fairly enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kylie | 9/5/2010

    " I love Laura Lippman but was less into this one, perhaps because the subject matter was the movie business--I like her earlier books better, when they covered more Baltimore history. But, it was still an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 6/16/2009

    " Baltimore's Laura Lippman almost never fails. I'm a diehard Tess Monahan fan, and this book (with its not-so-subtle lampooning of TV series production) is in my view the best of this growing series. I hope Lippman doesn't get tired of her gritty private eye protagonist@ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 11/26/2008

    " This is the 10th in the series, but it's the first one I've read. I liked it. Tess is a private investigator in Baltimore. This one involves the filming of a TV show and a couple of murders connected to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 11/2/2008

    " Probably my least favorite Laura Lippman so far... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 7/13/2008

    " I must admit - it was nice to read about Baltimore :) I always enjoy Lippman's novels, where Charm City is herself a character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 3/29/2008

    " Lippman's recent work has focused heavily on damaged psyches, and it's been an incredibly fruitful line for her to explore - she's doing some of her best work now, and it's been fascinating to see how she's developed Tess over the years. "
