I'D KNOW YOU ANYWHERE
Lippman, known for her Tess Monaghan mysteries, has ventured into deeper waters with stand-alone novels such as The Power of Three, What the Dead Know and now this fantastic and fascinating read. Although there is some mystery involved — why is Walter contacting Eliza, what does he want? — the main power and force of the novel lies in the knowing portraits of characters, both primary and secondary. Lippman also skillfully and subtly shows the quiet devastation that reverberates after a kidnapping. You’ll be thinking of each person’s motivations long after you finish the book.
