Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fast-paced and unpredictable, Sunburn is a smart, sly riff on love in a world of trouble that’s puzzling until the very last piece falls into place.” -- O, the Oprah Magazine

“Cool and twisty.” -- New York Times Book Review

“A masterful mix from a total pro.” -- People

“Every time Laura Lippman comes out with a new book, I get chills because I know I am back in the hands of the master. She is simply a brilliant novelist, an unflinching chronicler of life in America right now, and Sunburn is her dark, gleaming noir gem. Read it.” -- Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl

“Laura Lippman continues to push the envelope of modern crime-writing. Sunburn, her take on noir, may be her nerviest novel yet, an unsparing look at how lovers can betray one another.” -- Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Suspenseful as hell, and she writes like a dream [...] Lippman’s always good, but this is a cut above.” -- Stephen King

“Modern noir at its best, it will delight old-movie lovers, satisfy suspense readers, and reward Lippman’s legion of fans.” -- Library Journal (starred review)

“You can tell how much fun the author had updating the classic noir tropes, and it’s contagious. Plotty, page-turning pleasure.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This is Lippman at her observant, fiercest best, a force to be reckoned with in crime fiction.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Ingeniously constructed and extremely suspenseful, the novel keeps us guessing right up until its final moments. Lippman is a popular and dependable writer, and this homage to classic noir showcases a writer at the height of her powers.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“I feel like it creates a whole new category, which I’m thinking of as ‘femme noir’ [...] She’s taken this traditional noir structure of a man sweeping in to save a woman who then turns around and eats his heart out—she’s turned that notion on its head.” -- Wall Street Journal

“The ingenious plot evolves into myriad twists that are as believable as they are surprising [...] Sunburn delivers one of the year’s most intriguing mysteries.” -- Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers

“Another extraordinary novel from Laura Lippman—full of just-one-more chapter, stay-up-late suspense, but packed too with nuance, subtlety, observation and humanity. Lippman is a natural storyteller at the height of her powers.” -- Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Sunburn was dark but not too dark, thrilling, richly descriptive with an utterly compelling protagonist...I read this book at a furious pace and never forgot about it all year. Sunburn was a reminder that storytelling matters and good storytelling is all too rare.” -- Roxane Gay

“spellbinding [...] this corkscrew of a book, with its psychological insights and sensual charisma, proves once again that Ms. Lippman, as a writer, is sui generis.” -- Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal

“Great book. Well paced. Beautifully observed details. Interesting characters and nuance in the right places. [...] Thoroughly enjoyed this book and the protagonist who is flawed and brilliant and ruthless and unapologetic.” -- Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Bad Feminist and Hunger

“A tantalising, ingeniuously constructed page-turner.” -- The Guardian

“Grips like the classic Hollywood black-and-white movie thrillers of the 1930s and 1940s. Sunburn unsettles from its first page.” -- The Times (London)

“Note-perfect noir...not to be missed.” -- Megan Abbott, Edgar Award-winning author of Dare Me and The Fever

“A pacy, pithy modern take on the noir tradition...terrific entertainment.” -- Sunday Mirror

“For once the blurb doesn’t over-promise. Lippman writes the best opening pages of any thriller so far this year.” -- Daily Mail (UK)

From the Back Cover

One is playing a long game. But which one?

They meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware. Polly is set on heading west. Adam says he’s also just passing through. Yet she stays. And he stays—drawn to the mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness both unnerves and excites him. Over the course of a punishing summer, Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other—dangerous, even lethal, secrets.

Then someone dies. Was it an accident, or part of a plan? By now, Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other’s lives and lies that neither one knows how to get away—or even if they want to. Is their love strong enough to withstand the truth, or will it ultimately destroy them?

Something—or someone—has to give.

Which one will it be?
