Reviews

"Laura Lippman is one of my favorite writers. I cannot focus on anything else when I am reading one of her books. Her writing makes me wish I lived a sexier and more violent life."--Mindy Kaling
"Laura Lippman's WILDE LAKE is one of her best and most personal. . . . Lippman's novels are tough-minded, entertaining, heartfelt and wise . . . . She's one of today's essential writers, and this, her 20th novel, reminds us why."--Washington Post
"She's one of the best novelists around, period."--Washington Post
"I never miss Laura Lippman's novels."--Anna Quindlen, New York Times bestselling author
"Laura Lippman's stories aren't just mysteries; they are deeply moving explorations of the human heart. She is quite simply one of the best crime novelists writing today."--Tess Gerritsen
"Lippman as always treads the fine line between certainty and amazement."--Kirkus Reviews
"Ultimately, Wilde Lake is not so much a crime novel that rises to the level of serious literature as serious literature that rises to the level of great crime fiction.--Chicago Tribune
"A heady brew of twisting tale and accelerating introspection, Wilde Lake at once disturbs and delights, as Lippman impels not only her characters but also her readers to question the depth of their understanding of the past..."--Richmond Times-Dispatch
"Wilde Lake is engrossing, suspenseful and substantial, its wit easing a sober, somewhat elegiac air."--New York Times Book Review
"Lippman draws on two decades of crime reporting to produce a heart-stopping new thriller, which pivots on a state attorney's drive and cunning as she unravels a baffling murder case with personal implications."--O Magazine
"As shocking secrets are revealed, the reader realizes that nothing and no one can be taken at face value in Lippman's brainy, witty, socially conscious, and all-consuming inquiry into human nature and our slowly evolving sense of justice and equality...Lippman is an A-list crime writer."--Booklist (starred review)
"Lippman is an expert at lending a clear-eyed view of the bonds that link people and the truths we tell ourselves to survive the emotional morass of life. She continues this high standard in Wilde Lake."--Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers
"... [a] richly plotted and emotionally devastating standalone...Lippman plays with the concept of truth and expertly hones in on the question of whether there are some truths we never want to know."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
