Description
Originally serialized in the New York Times, this novella from the top-ranking mystery author is finally available in book form. In the third trimester of a difficult pregnancy, Baltimore PI Tess Monaghan is under strict orders to remain immobile. She takes some small comfort in the mundane events she observes outside her windowólike the young woman in a green raincoat who walks her dog at the same time every day. Then one day the dog is running free and its owner is nowhere to be seen. Incapable of leaving well enough alone, Tess is determined to get to the bottom of the dog walker's abrupt disappearance, even if she must do so from her own bedroom, in this deliciously Hitchcockian thriller.

"Lovingly tucked up on her winterized sun porch, Tess marshals her forcesódoting artist boyfriend Crow, best friend Whitney Talbot, middle-aged assistant gumshoe Mrs. Blossom, and researcher Dorie Starnesóto probe the disappearance of a chic blonde green-raincoated dog walker she'd been watching from her comfy prison. Tess also takes in the missing woman's abandoned green-slickered Italian greyhound from hell, a miniature canine terrorist whose anti-housebreaking vendetta offers comic relief from Tess's threatened pre-eclampsia, her obsessive unraveling of a complex scam, and her last-trimester spats with Crow about their future.... This entertaining romp leaves plenty of hints of detective-mother exploits to come."óPublishers Weekly
