First as a reporter and then as a PI, Tess Monaghan has learned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Baltimore. But a new case will force her to confront her own past, and a man she loved and lost. It starts when she gets a newspaper photograph of her old boyfriend with a tantalizing shard of headline attached: In Big Trouble. The answers lie far from Baltimore, deep in a world of good-time music, old-fashioned ambition, and rich people’s games. For Tess must find out what happened to a man she thought she knew, to a woman who may have changed him forever, and to the victims of a killer who dances to a different—and deadly—drummer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lippman’s colorful characters—especially the proprietor of Tess’ temporary no-tell motel, and homicide detective Al Guzman—add amusement to this gripping mystery.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Edgar Award-winning author Laura Lippman has created a winning character in Baltimore-based PI Tess Monaghan…Deborah Hazlett’s reading is just right for this lighthearted fare. Her rendering of Tess is upbeat, and the stereotypical Asian accent she gives to Mrs. Nguyen works for her ditzy character…Fans will appreciate Tess’ latest outing.” 


Listener Opinions

    " A mystery with some adventure. Interesting characters. I give it 3 1/2 stars. "

    " I should probably be spacing these paperback thrillers showcasing newcomer private detective Tess Monaghan a little more apart, but I can't help but be drawn into a quick and fun read when I am traveling. This mystery revolves around an open homicide in Texas, and while the writing continues to improve, it is still just your basic murder mystery. "

    " I'm split in half about this book. I read it quickly like a handful of candy, like many of Laura's other books. But if this were the first Tess book I've ever read, I'm not sure I'd have ever picked up another one. In this book Tess gives the impression of being sure she's right about everything, spoilt and childish. I found her rather unpleasant company, when normally she's one of the best parts of the books. I imagine being away from her beloved Baltimore was at least part of it, but it's yet more proof that Laura does Baltimore best of all. "

    " Good solid book. Nothing too genius but entertaining enough. "
