Tess Monaghan has finally made the move and hung out her shingle as a PI-for-hire, complete with an office in Butchers Hill. Maybe it]s not the best address in Baltimore, but you gotta start somewhere, and Tess’ greyhound Esskay has no trouble taking marathon naps anywhere there’s a roof. Then in walks Luther Beale, the notorious vigilante who five years ago shot a boy for vandalizing his car. Just out of prison, he says he wants to make reparations to the kids who witnessed his crime, so he needs Tess to find them. But once she starts snooping, the witnesses start dying. Is the Butcher of Butchers Hill at it again? Like it or not, Tess is embroiled in a case that encompasses the powers that be, a heartless system that has destroyed the lives of children, and a nasty trail of money and lies leading all the way back to Butchers Hill.

  • “Dialogue is on the mark, accompanied by lively observations about female entrepreneurship, adoption, foster home rackets, and quirky Baltimore natives and neighborhoods. A bittersweet, perfectly plausible ending winds things up.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This trip around Baltimore and its environs and through the darker side of the welfare system is well worth the fare.”

    " I love the Tess Monaghan series. This wasn't my favorite but is an enjoyable, fast read if you like the character. "

    " Nice, quick read. I can usually pick out the murderer pretty fast but this one had me guessing. I recently got hooked on Tess Monaghan because she's running a serial in the New York Times Magazine, and while I'm waiting impatiently in between installments, I had to go back and read all the earlier books. I have family in Baltimore so it's fun to read about all the places I've been or have heard about. There's a lot of interesting, colorful characters, hopefully some of them will return in later books. "

    " In the continuing series of Tess Monoghan by Laura Lippman, we find Tess trying to solve another case. This is a contemporary series, and falls into the only genre of today's world that I read. I get a kick out of Tess's attempts to figure out whodunit. Laura knows her setting well, and it is one place where I don't get too terribly lost when she tells about getting around the city, for I've been there. I enjoy the real feel to Laura's stories as she shows the trial and error that goes along with truly solving a case. She can sure give you the chills as the story unfolds. "

    " this book was ok. I had read some of her books in the past and remember liking them more. I didn't really like any of the characters except for the detective and maybe her family... "
