9780062070791 New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippmanâ€™s Tess Monaghan must solve one of the most baffling murders in her PI career. When Tess Monaghan agrees to talk to Ruthie Dembrow, she senses sheâ€™ll regret it. If thereâ€™s anything Tess has learned in her work both as a newspaper reporter and then as a PI, itâ€™s to trust your instincts. Still, she canâ€™t deny sheâ€™s intrigued when Ruthie asks her to investigate the fatal stabbing of her brother, Henry, while he was locked away for murdering a teenage runaway over a bottle of glue. Henryâ€™s death at the hands of fellow convicts doesnâ€™t surprise Tess, but what does is that he was convicted for murdering a â€œJane Doeâ€â€”something that rarely happens in the judicial system. No ID was found on the victimâ€™s body, and her fingerprints didnâ€™t match up to any in the national database. How could anyone escape all the identity nets of the modern world? Ruthie is convinced if she learns the identity of her brotherâ€™s victim, maybe she can also find out why he was killed. Tessâ€™s search takes her on a harrowing journey from Baltimoreâ€™s exclusive Inner Harbor to the seedy neighborhood of Locust Point. But itâ€™s the shocking discovery of the runawayâ€™s true identity that turns Tessâ€™s hunt deadly. Suddenly, her supposedly solved murder case keeps turning up newer, fresher corpses and scarier versions of the Sugar Houseâ€”places that look so sweet and safe, but only from the outside.
