Another Book for Summer Reading

“Solid and entertaining” says the Washington Post of Laura Lippman’s THE SUGAR HOUSE.

This is a Tess Monaghan novel that takes place in Baltimore.  Tess Monaghan thought she knew the Sugar House — the abandoned Domino Sugar factory that remains a legacy of Baltimore’s past.  Then a client named Ruthie asks the newspaperwoman-turned-p.i. to investigate a year-old Jane Doe murder.  Ruthie’s low-life brother, Henry, confessed to killing a teenage runaway over a bottle of glue  —  and, a month into his prison term, was killed in jail.  Following few clues, Tess’s hunt for the truth is leads her from Baltimore’s exclusive Inner Harbor to the city’s seediest neighborhoods — a hunt that turns deadly with the shocking discovery of the runaway’s true identity.  suddenly, a supposedly solved murder case is turning up newer, fresher corpses and newer, scarier versions of the Sugar House — places that look sweet and safe…but only from the outside.

382 pages in paperback.
