In Big Trouble: A Tess Monaghan Novel, Book 4

First as a reporter and then as a PI, Tess Monaghan has learned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Baltimore. But a new case will force her to confront her own past, and a man she loved and lost. It starts when she gets a newspaper photograph of her old boyfriend with a tantalizing shard of headline attached: In Big Trouble. The answers lie far from Baltimore, deep in a world of good-time music, old-fashioned ambition, and rich people's games. For Tess must find out what happened to a man she thought she knew, to a woman who may have changed him forever, and to the victims of a killer who dances to a different - and deadly - drummer.

    "Tess on the Road"

    Tess NOT in Baltimore?? Though our heroine admits that she just plain doesn't see any point in traveling, this story is terrific, even if she spends much of her time feeling homesick.

    Set in Austin and San Antonio, Texas, "In Big Trouble" explores Tess' relationship with her lover Crow in new ways. In unfamiliar surroundings, she learns a great deal about him and, ultimately, about herself. The story is filled with dead bodies, sad histories, and red herrings. Great stuff!

    Story
    "A surprising change of scenery"

    Former journalist Tess strays from Baltimore to, of all places, my stomping ground. So I was particularly excited to listen to one of my most favorite mystery writers. The story is as intricate as the others, and I'm accustomed to Deborah Hazlett's voice. I assume her various Baltimore dialects are spot on, but she missed it big time trying to replicate a Spanish-speaking Texan's dialect. Plus, it grated on me when locations were mispronounced, or at least they were not spoken as the locals would.I also felt like Lippman tried too hard to prove a knowledge of the new location. Looking up her bio I was surprised to see she had reported from San Antonio and does know the area well beyond what a visitor would know. Do Audible authors have the opportunity to approve the recorded version of their books?
    Beyond my parochial comments about Tex-Mex dialect and the way we pronounce certain Spanish locales, I love Lippman's Tess and Hazlett's voice. I can't wait to listen to the next one.
