Description
The author of the long-running Tess Monaghan series and the winner of the Edgar, Anthony, Nero Wolfe, Agatha, Gumshoe, Barry, and Macavity Awards, as well as the inaugural Baltimore Mayor's Prize for Literary Excellence, Laura Lippman offers this gripping standalone novel based on her short story "Scratch a Woman." A young suburban widow with a son in grade school, Heloise is very good at making herself forgettable. But in discreet hotel rooms throughout the Baltimore area, she can be the woman of your dreams—if you can afford her hourly fee. For more than a decade, Heloise has believed she is safe in her rigidly compartmentalized life, maintaining no real friendships, trusting few confidantes. But now her secret life is under siege: her formerly oblivious accountant is asking loaded questions; another so-called suburban madam has been found dead; and the father of Heloise's son—a killer and former pimp serving a life sentence—may be getting out of jail a lot sooner than she expected.

"Shifting smoothly from Heloise's past to her present, Lippman delivers an intense character study about a strong, complex woman whose love for her son compels her to make some desperate choices."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A steady, surprising tale.... Ms. Lippman's nominal subject may be prostitution, but her book is not about a woman who takes care of clients. It's about a woman who can take care of herself."—NYTimes
