No Good Deeds: A Tess Monaghan Novel | [Laura Lippman]

No Good Deeds: A Tess Monaghan Novel

For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid who doesn't even realize he holds an important key to the man's death.

Publisher's Summary

For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid who doesn't even realize he holds an important key to the man's death.

Tess agrees to protect the boy's identity no matter what, especially when one of his friends is killed in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. But with federal agents determined to learn the boy's name at any cost, Tess finds out just how far even official authorities will go to get what they want. Soon, she's facing felony charges, and Crow has gone into hiding with his young protege, so Tess couldn't deliver the kid to investigators even if she wanted to.

Time and time again, Tess is reminded of her father's old joke, the one about the most terrifying sentence in the English language: "We're from the government - and we're here to help."

What the Critics Say

"Smartly plotted and paced." (Publishers Weekly)
"Lippman lets each character contribute a piece to the whole, which makes the story richer, and there's some nail-biting suspense as Tess faces off against what she thinks are the big guns of government." (Booklist)

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

    "I don't know what it is..."

    I really enjoy this series. I finished this book in two days. I have been listening to these out of order, but there is no doubt in my mind that I will eventually get them all. I am going to start at the beginning. I can hardly wait for the next adventure with Tess Monaghan and friends.

    "Irritating music added to recording"

    Sections are separated by very irritating music. Why do they ruin good audiobooks by adding this stuff???
    The other problem was that there is a section where the recording is corrupted.

    "Not Elizabeth George..."

    I liked Tess Monaghan, and I liked this story, However, the leading character wasn't as compelling as I would have liked her to be. Story line good and fast paced. I probably won't listen to another one, though.
