    4 surprise starsThis was such a surprising book I loved the way that Laura Lippman wrote this with so many different voices Here s one example there would be a scene of two characters talking at a diner and the next voice we would hear would be from the waitress I thought this was so clever and a great way to make the story multi dimensional There s a baseball player, a ghost, and a policeman just to name a few of the voices that c

    3.5 starsI liked the feel of Lady in the Lake, but there was something a bit disjointed about it at times The story is set in 1966 Balti and focuses on Maddie Schwartz Maddie is somewhat at odds with the times She is restless in her marriage, has a healthy sexual appetite, is itching to work at something engaging and is willing to take risks But she s no hero She gets a job with a newspaper and starts meddling in the murder of Cleo Sherw
