About the Author

Since Laura Lippman's debut in 1997, she has been recognized as a distinctive voice in mystery fiction and named one of the essential crime writers of the last 100 years. Her books have won most of the major awards in her field and been translated into more than twenty languages. She lives in Baltimore and New Orleans with her 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
