The Girl in the Green Raincoat: A Tess Monaghan Novel

In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Baltimore private investigator Tess Monaghan is under doctor's orders to remain immobile. Bored and restless, reduced to watching the world go by outside her window, she takes small comfort in the mundane events she observes... like the young woman in a green raincoat who walks her dog at the same time every day. Then one day the dog is running free and its owner is nowhere to be seen.

Publisher's Summary

In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Baltimore private investigator Tess Monaghan is under doctor's orders to remain immobile. Bored and restless, reduced to watching the world go by outside her window, she takes small comfort in the mundane events she observes... like the young woman in a green raincoat who walks her dog at the same time every day. Then one day the dog is running free and its owner is nowhere to be seen.

Certain that something is terribly wrong, and incapable of leaving well enough alone, Tess is determined to get to the bottom of the dog walker's abrupt disappearance, even if she must do so from her own bedroom. But her inquisitiveness is about to fling open a dangerous Pandora's box of past crimes and troubling deaths . . . and she's not only putting her own life in jeopardy but also her unborn child's.

Previously serialized in the New York Times, and now published in book form for the very first time, The Girl in the Green Raincoat is a masterful Hitchcockian thriller from one of the very best in the business: multiple award-winner Laura Lippman.

Solve another case with Tess Monaghan.

    "I love Lippman and Emond is great!"

    I am a huge Laura Lippman fan - I've listened to all her novels. This story follows a recurring character named Tess, a private detective. It is a Rear Window-esque story with some nice little twists. I loved it but I wanted more. It was only 4+ hours long and not enough for me. Linda Emond is the very best at reading Lippman characters. I love to listen to her.

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

    "Rear Window with a twist"

    Linda Emond does an excellent job narrating this story. There were some very unexpected twists to this plot. I am growing very fond of the characters in the Tess Monaham series. I enjoyed it and will look for another book by Laura Lippman.

    Story
    "Tess Monaghan is at it again"

    Even with forced bed rest, Tess can't seem to curb her curiosity. This mystery has a "Rear Window" feel to it. However, in this story, she has a new investigator, her friend Whitney, and the internet to help dig into the mystery. I enjoyed the update on Tess's life and another PI case.

    Linda Emond is an excellent narrator.

    Story
    "A wonderful side trip for Tess Monaghan Fans!"

    Although Tess remains front and center in this novel, the feel of this shorter novel is something of a departure for our heroine. Laura Lippman pays homage to the work of other mystery masters, involves all our favorite characters from her previous books, and saves the best for last.

    If you like Laura Lippman, you will love this one!

    "Quick listen"

    I live between Baltimore and DC so I could relate to the area in novella. It was a good quick listen with a great narrator. I will seek out other stories by this author.
