Book Description


See all titles by Laura Lippman.

In this blazing stand-alone novel of twisting suspense, the New York Times bestselling author raises difficult, illuminating questions about the nature of truth and examines the extraordinary power and fragility of memories. Writer Cassandra Fallows achieved critical and commercial success with an account of her Baltimore childhood growing up in the 1960s and a follow-up dealing with her adult marriages and affairs.

The merely modest success of her debut novel leads her back to nonfiction and the possibility of a book about grade school classmate Calliope Jenkins. Accused of murdering her infant son, Jenkins spent seven years in prison steadfastly declining to answer any questions about the disappearance and presumed death of her son. Fallows tries to reconnect with three former classmate friends to compare memories of Jenkins and research her story.

In the process, she discovers the gulf that separates her memories of events from theirs. Fallows's pursuit of Jenkins's story becomes a rich, complex journey from self-deception to self-discovery.

"Razor-sharp." - Entertainment Weekly

"Lippman has not only expanded the frontiers of genre fiction, she has enriched literature as a whole." - Chicago Sun-Times

Laura Lippman has won every major mystery award, including the Anthony, the Edgar, the Shamus, the Agatha, the Quill, and the Nero Wolfe.
