Baltimore Blues | [Laura Lippman]

Baltimore Blues

Unemployed at 29, Tess Monaghan is willing to take any freelance job to pay the rent - including a bit of unorthodox snooping for her rowing buddy, Darryl "Rock" Paxton. In a city where someone is murdered almost every day, attorney Michael Abramowitz's death should be just another statistic. But the slain lawyer's notoriety - and his noontime trysts with Rock's fiancée - make the case front page news...and point to Rock as the likely murderer.

    "Excellent"

    Great book with many twists and turns. I almost didn't buy this book because of the negative reviews. So glad I didn't listen to them.

    "Too contemporary for me"

    This book seemed to be firmly embedded into values that I don't think serve anyone well and that I'm tired of. I stopped reading. Perhaps younger women, who believe in the current mores and haven't woken up to how much it is hurting them, would like it.

    "Not the best Lippmann book, but glad I got it."

    It took me a while to "bond" with the characters, but it was worth it in the end. I'm looking forward to more stories about Tess.

    The narrator was easy enough to listen to, but left me critiquing her reading in many places. I would not refuse to buy another book with Deborah Hazlett as the reader, but would be prepared to be slightly less than satisfied with her performance. Maybe I'm just spoiled by some of the really great readers with Audible.

    All in all, it was a good listen. I would recommend this book to my friends.

    I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.

    "Not your usual mystery..."

    I am starting the Tess Monaghan series from the beginning. I've read a few here and there and became hooked. So now I am going to get them all. I like the characters in her stories, and I wanted to get to know them better. I am enjoying the process.
