Hush Hush

1 Mins read

Hush_Hush200Laura Lippman‘s Tess Monaghan books have taken a back seat to her standalone writing in recent years, but thankfully the ‘accidental detective’ is back in Hush Hush – the 12th in the series. Monaghan now has a three-year-old daughter and this weighs heavily on her mind because her latest case involves the death of a child. Twelve years ago, Melisandre Dawes deliberately left her baby daughter to die in the baking heat of her car while she sat by the river. After pleading criminal insanity and going through the system, Melisandre has returned and wants to make contact with her surviving daughters. However, now that she’s back in Baltimore, it looks like someone is trying to kill this murdersome mother. Tess and ex-cop Sandy are called in to protect her…

“Lippman is fascinated by how her characters live day-to-day, which makes them leap off the page,” said our reviewer Andre, here.
