“Lippman is a writing powerhouse.”

USA Today


New York Times bestselling author and winner of every major prize awarded for crime fiction—including the Edgar®, Anthony, Shamus, Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards—Laura Lippman brilliantly demonstrates her astonishing agility as a short story writer with Hardly Knew Her. A sterling collection of sixteen suspenseful short fictions and novellas—most set in and around her beloved Baltimore and several featuring her popular series character private investigator Tess Monaghan—Hardly Knew Her was called, “Riveting…One of the best collections released in some time” by the Boston Globe. The Seattle Times says, “something in the short-story form brings out the wicked in Laura Lippman,” and this exceptional collection is indisputable proof that Lippman is without peer as she walks boldly on the dark and dangerous side.

    " "Hardly Knew Her" is a collections of short stories. I was a bit taken aback at the ending of the first one. Then, I read another and could start to see every story was going to end with someone's untimely death by the hands of another character. The author cleverly drew in characters from previous stories in the ending chapter. I thought many of the stories would be good Alfred Hitchcock episodes. Some were funny and others not at all. A very interesting read. "
