Wow! How to describe this book and its main character? Different, compelling, intriguing, appalling, thought-provoking - all come to mind.
Laura Lippman is a great writer, and she delivers here. The characters are well-developed and interesting. The book is structured in the one-chapter-in-the-present, one-chapter-in-the-past format. I'm not generally a fan of that style, but it works here, and the build up of interest and tension is palpable.
If you are like me, you will find your sympathies shifting around a lot in "And When She Was Good." Whether you believe this unique character and her story to be symptoms of the decline of civilization or an increase in tolerance, I think you'll find it to be thought-provoking and entertaining.

Where does And When She Was Good rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I've listened to every Laura Lippman book on Audible. This was one of her best - Linda Emonds rocks as a narrator. I wish she narrated more books!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes. There were unexpected twists and turns to the story that kept me wondering what would happen next. Heloise's choices make sense based on what we learn of her past. Laura Lippman is a master of character development.
Have you listened to any of Linda Emond’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to every Linda Emond performance of L. Lippman's books. This was one of her best. They are all good though.
Who was the most memorable character of And When She Was Good and why?
Oddly, I was drawn to the character of Audrey and her pivotal role in the story. She was a constant yet she still remains a mystery. In a good way.
Any additional comments?
Please write more books, Ms. Lippman!
