I'd Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman.. This Edgar-winner’s novel of psychological suspense puts a married mother in the hot seat when she gets a letter from the death-row murderer who abducted her half a lifetime ago. Searing choices and complex characters.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Ex-journalist Lippman never forgets as she moves from past to present and from perspective to perspective that nothing is more important—or more elusive—than the truth.."

Kirkus

"This is a story that grips you not with suspense but with its acute psychological autopsy of a survivor. Lippman’s knack for elucidating the horrors humans can inflict on one another through violence and manipulation — while telling a compelling story —is disarming and fascinating.."

USA Today
