Overview

Hardly Knew Her by Laura Lippman

“Lippman is a writing powerhouse.”

USA Today

 

New York Times bestselling author and winner of every major prize awarded for crime fiction—including the Edgar®, Anthony, Shamus, Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards—Laura Lippman brilliantly demonstrates her astonishing agility as a short story writer with Hardly Knew Her. A sterling collection of sixteen suspenseful short fictions and novellas—most set in and around her beloved Baltimore and several featuring her popular series character private investigator Tess Monaghan—Hardly Knew Her was called, “Riveting…One of the best collections released in some time” by the Boston Globe. The Seattle Times says, “something in the short-story form brings out the wicked in Laura Lippman,” and this exceptional collection is indisputable proof that Lippman is without peer as she walks boldly on the dark and dangerous side.

Great short stories! I believe there were 16 shorts. They were all very good stories! I really enjoyed reading the stories! You also save 6 dollars by buying this book instead of the individually! Excellent treat!

I'd read everything I could find of Lippmann's before this and enjoyed her skill. This collection of shorter stories, however, shows a darker side, a more sordid side. I'm not sure I'll even finish it.
