Taking her inspiration from noir master James M. Cain, top-drawer thriller writer Lippman departs not simply from her beloved Tess Monaghan series but from the style and setting of her previous work. At a small tavern in Belleville, DE, Adam and flame-haired Polly pause in their travels and ignite an affair so tempestuous and so grounded in secrets that when a suspicious death occurs, it's hard to figure out how they might be implicated. With a 125,000-copy first printing.
