About the Author

Laura Lippman is a New York Times bestselling novelist who has won more than twenty awards for her fiction, including the Edgar Award--and been nominated for thirty more. Since her debut in 1997, she has published almost two dozen novels, a novella, a children's book, and a collection of short stories. Her books have been translated into over twenty languages. Laura lives in Baltimore with her husband, David Simon, and their daughter.


"Inspired by the unsolved death of Shirley Parker... Lippman's ambitious novel weaves some twenty points of view into a seamless, vivid whole. The novel demonstrates that Lippman, a former Baltimore Sun reporter, is both a skilled journalist and a masterful novelist." --Washington Post on The Lady in the Lake
"The closest writer America has to Ruth Rendell.... What makes this book special, even extraordinary, is that the crossword puzzle aspect is secondary...[Lady in the Lake] reflects the gulf which then existed between what women were expected to be and what they aspired to be."--Stephen King, New York Times Book Review, on The Lady in the Lake
"Don't miss this novel." --Anna Quindlen, New York Times bestselling author, on The Lady in the Lake
"Baltimore in the mid-1960s is the setting of Lady in the Lake, the latest novel from the ever-impressive Laura Lippman...Lippman's book is revelatory, too, in showing the personal and professional costs to others--friends, loved ones, sources, witnesses--of Maddie's single-minded quest for achievement and recognition." --Washington Post
"A cavalcade of narrators--including Cleo's ghost, who wants Maddie to stop poking into her world--and Lippman's expert storytelling bring the city's tensions wondrously to life." --People on The Lady in the Lake
