Not a short story but merely a character profile

This "story" is really just a clever way for the author to give readers an overview of her character Monaghan, in the guise of a newspaper feature story. It is also a paean of praise for the City of Baltimore and its attractions. However, if you were looking for an exciting plot, this isn't it.

A quick diversion

This was a nice story to listen to while I was driving across country. I would try another book by Laura Lippman.
