Editorial Reviews

Review

Lippman, reporter for the Baltimore Sun, excels at vivid portraits of her town's offbeat neighborhoods, hangouts and inhabitants. Seen through the eyes of her protagonist--a smart, funny P.I. named Tess Monaghan--Baltimore is never dull

From Booklist

If Nancy Drew went on performance-enhancing drugs, she'd resemble Tess Monaghan, Lippman's Baltimore-based private eye. Tess has much more in common with the old-time girl sleuth than with contemporary women private eyes: she has neither the latter's overcompensating toughness nor their dourness. Tess does have a chum, and they delight in pranks like the one that starts off her latest caper, dumping two date-rape tablets into the drink of a would-be assailant of underage girls. Tess' chum even helps Tess' business by asking her to investigate a series of domestic-violence cases for her charitable foundation. The police have cleared the cases, but Tess' friend feels they bear further examination. From this slim plot device stems a road-trip mystery, in which Tess travels across Maryland and discovers the cover-up of a grisly decapitation. A somewhat shaky plot, rescued by Edgar-winning Lippman's wit and intelligence. Connie Fletcher
