New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman spins a spellbinding novel of suspense in which PI Tess Monaghan must turn to the past to solve a murder in the present. . . .
PI Tess Monaghan thought sheâd seen the last of her ex-boyfriend Ed Crow when they ended their relationship. But when she receives a newspaper clipping with a photo of Crow and the headline âIN BIG TROUBLE,â sheâs reluctantly pulled into looking for him and heads to Austin, Texasâthe last place he was seen. Searching the house where Crow was staying, Tess stumbles on more than she bargained for when she finds the body of an ex-convict whose face has been blown off with a rifle.
Now with the local sheriff breathing down her neck for answers, Tess knows she has to find Crowâand fastâbefore the cops locate him. As she attempts to track him down and meets Emmie Sterne, the singer in Crowâs band, Tess immediately senses somethingâs off with the blonde, blue-eyed stunner. Tess has no doubts that Crow is innocentâbut the company heâs been keeping is questionable even if she is easy on the eyes.
Determined to find Crow and make sure he isnât in any danger, Tess investigates and soon discovers she hardly knows the man she thought she knew. But more troubling, she realizes she still has feelings for him. And when another corpse surfaces, Tess must find out the connection between the two murders and Emmieâs dark past . . . and if a killer lurks behind that pretty face.
