    Tess Monaghan, Baltimore private investigator, is in trouble wi

    Tess Monaghan, Baltimore private investigator, is in trouble with the
    law, all because she and her friend, Whitney, tracked down a guy who
    uses the internet to prey on young girls and then proceeded to humiliate
    him in a rather unique way. Now, Tess is sentenced to 6 months of weekly
    anger management therapy. Tess, of course, does not think she needs this
    at all. Feeling bad for getting her friend into this, Whitney gets Tess
    a job with one of her foundations, a job that seems simple on the
    surface. All Tess has to do is look into the quality of the police work
    done on five domestic violence cases across the state. Why, then, does
    it begin to look as though these cases may be connected to each other
    somehow? Tess hooks up with Carl Dewitt who, as a Toll Facilities cop,
    had found one of the bodies or, at least, part of it. He’s retired on
    disability now but has never forgotten this case—in fact, he seems to be
    nearly obsessed with it. He convinces Tess that there’s more to the case
    than meets the eye and they team up to do their own investigation. What
    this will lead to is far more frightening than either Tess or Carl could
    possibly imagine. Author Laura Lippman is a master of the suspense
    genre and this latest in the Tess Monaghan series is no exception. A
    number of authors have attempted the dual point-of-view style but Ms.
    Lippman is one of the few who can do it effectively, telling the story
    from Tess’s viewpoint while periodically interjecting the killer’s
    thoughts. This is one of those books I simply could not put down until I
    had finished it and then I was left with a lingering sense of dread—the
    perfect suspense thriller in my opinion.

    Best Lippman work out of them all

    "The Last Place" trumps over all of Lippman's previous works. The storyline is phenomenal and riveting. I love how this book's storyline is tied back to a previous book in Lippman's series. Again, Tess evolves and grows with each passing book and I'm completely fascinated with her character development.

    In this particular work, Tess fights an unknown serial killer. Lippman crafts a phenomenal storyline, filled with twists and turns. Each chapter left me hanging on for more. It was so hard for me to put this book down and when it was over I was completely sad. I wanted the book to be longer, to keep going! This book sweeps you up in the terror and horror of one serial killer's path of destruction and his battle against one of the strongest and smartest woman heroine of all time. Lippman keeps the reader enraptured and on the edge of their seat throughout the whole novel. This is definitely the best novel Lippmann has ever written in the Tess Monaghan series.

    A Fun Read

    I enjoyed this book very much. Laura mixes the unspoken venom between the sexes with lots of Baltimore touches. If you're familiar with Baltimore, you'll enjoy the book just a bit more. The heroine, Tess, is plucky, flawed, and fun. As mysteries go, I enjoyed this book way more than the Da Vinci Code. I've just gotten into Laura Lippman's books, and I am enjoying her easy, breezy writing style very much.
