One of mystery writing's most acclaimed novelists for her brilliant Tess Monaghan series, Laura Lippman won the Anthony and Barry Awards for this riveting stand-alone.
Kicked out of a birthday party, 11-year-olds Alice and Ronnie walk home and encounter a baby left in a carriage. Their earnest desire to do a good deed ends tragically, however, and seven years later they are released from "kid prison" to start their lives anew.
"Lippman has won just about every mystery writing award there is - the Edgar, the Agatha, the Anthony, the Shamus, and the Nero Wolfe - for her Tess Monaghan series. This is her first stand-alone mystery, one in which the detectives are consigned to bit parts....Lippman doesn't write a standard whodunit here but plays with reader expectations of what should happen next. A startling page-turner." (Booklist)
