What the Critics Say

"Lippman shows herself to be a master of short fiction....read them fast, like a glutton, or slowly to savor each one. Either way, this is a treasure." (Library Journal)

"Lippman fans won't be disappointed with these small treasures." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Not a short story but merely a character profile"

    This "story" is really just a clever way for the author to give readers an overview of her character Monaghan, in the guise of a newspaper feature story. It is also a paean of praise for the City of Baltimore and its attractions. However, if you were looking for an exciting plot, this isn't it.

    "A quick diversion"

    This was a nice story to listen to while I was driving across country. I would try another book by Laura Lippman.
