Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patti | 2/19/2014

    " if this is representative of the tess monaghan ouevre, i am very disappointed. i'll give the series one more try but that is all. such a shame considering how good "what the dead know" was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 2/18/2014

    " The 7th in Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan series and the best one yet since the first. Tess is such a terrific protagonist. Tough, flawed but totally likable. In this story she is asked to investigate a series of five seemingly unrelated homicides over the last 6 years only to find, with time and lots of wrong turns the common link. She hooks up with a retired Toll Cop, Carl, who is obsessed and flawed himself but an absolutely perfect partner for Tess in this story. The book is amazingly written and the plot terrific; multiple twists and turns and surprises. It's really cool how Lippman ties this story with the one in the first book of the series; closing a number of loose ends left hanging through the last 5 books. An excellent, excellent read but would not recommend if you have not read other books in the series. Particularly the first one.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/10/2014

    " Really good mystery writer I've never read before. I am going to go back and start at the beginning and try to read them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/8/2014

    " Really good addition to the series. A little gruesome in some details towards the end but really liked the mystery aspect and felt that it actually seemed plausable for Tess to be solving it and it seemed like it wasn't just her dumb luck for once! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penelope West | 2/8/2014

    " Laura Lippman outdoes herself in this book. Another in the Tess Monaghan series, Laura creates a frightening serial killer who is stalking Tess. This roams all over Maryland and the surrounding countryside. We watch Tess go through a tremendous growth in this book as she works out the details in not one but five cases that tie together. Not everything works out as Tess would have liked, but that's the way it goes in real life as well. This book will make a believer out of you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Dashofy | 1/16/2014

    " Another terrific read from Laura Lippman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 1/16/2014

    " My first read of her books. Enjoyed it and will read more. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Msmithclan | 12/24/2013

    " I gave this one star, respectively, because it was too slow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 11/2/2013

    " Didn't have quite the slam-bang finish of other Lippman books I've read and I felt as though I should have read other Tess Monaghan stories before this one to really feel the impact of what the murderer did. Entertaining and quick read though and I'll definitely read more Tess books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsti | 8/13/2013

    " Not as good as Lippman's What the Dead Know, but an entertaining mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 5/31/2013

    " Best book yet in the Tess Monaghan series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn Rose | 3/5/2013

    " A darn good read with Tess following the clues fed to her by a serial killer. Just enough of the creepy killer's point of view to draw me on but not so much that it made my skin crawl. And not too much of Crow. Carl was a terrific multi-faceted character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 12/12/2012

    " This was my least favorite of the Tess Monaghan books so far. There was far more darkness and violence in this one than the others. Perhaps I'm just a wimp and take things too much to heart but the end was very disturbing to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 11/28/2012

    " I am really enjoying this series - Tess Monaghan is a very interesting character. She's a private eye, based in Baltimore. In this book she deals with an Internet creep while also helping to solve a serial killing spree that started many years earlier. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette Meier | 11/1/2012

    " An excellent dark mystery that keeps you wondering where it will turn next and how it all fits into Tess and her life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 8/5/2012

    " I think Lippman is currently my favorite mass market mystery writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/1/2012

    " I usually enjoy Lippman books...I find Tess likable and I am fond of the Baltimore setting. This one also incorporated the Eastern Shore/Crisfield area and North East in Cecil County. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 7/28/2012

    " I had a hard time putting this one down, and stayed up late to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 4/15/2012

    " Another great page-turner from Lippman "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyra | 10/24/2011

    " Definitely one of Ms. Lippman's crazier plots. But who cares ! Read it all through in a day. Yum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paulette | 5/13/2011

    " I could not put this book down, almost go to work late. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 2/20/2011

    " this is my favorite genre of books: strong, but flawed,female detective (love tess), good mystery, underlying conflicts, suspense. some might argue "but not great literature" and i agree, but a great escape and pure enjoyment for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 1/13/2011

    " It was just an okay book. This was the first book that I tried in the series. It was slightly better than her normal books that she writes. But at the same time it still has some slow spots. I wasn't that thrilled with the plotline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/2/2011

    " Quick read. Kept my attention while driving to and from Park City and yet had no problem putting it down to navigate or to play with my iPad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mickey | 10/6/2010

    " This one was barely listen-to-able. The narrator was just awful. It made it really hard to get through it. I'll admit that I skipped through some of it. Ugh. I enjoyed the ending though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maggie | 11/28/2009

    " I had a hard time putting this one down, and stayed up late to finish it. "
