Publisher's Summary

First as a reporter and then as a PI, Tess Monaghan has learned how to survive and thrive on the streets of Baltimore. But a new case will force her to confront her own past, and a man she loved and lost. It starts when she gets a newspaper photograph of her old boyfriend with a tantalizing shard of headline attached: In Big Trouble. The answers lie far from Baltimore, deep in a world of good-time music, old-fashioned ambition, and rich people's games. For Tess must find out what happened to a man she thought she knew, to a woman who may have changed him forever, and to the victims of a killer who dances to a different - and deadly - drummer.

Don't tell my wife, but I'm a little bit in love with Tesser

I'm not kidding. Laura Lippman's first Tess Monaghan book was a Daily Deal, & I'm so grateful to have discovered this series. Tess and her many companions are flawed & believable in a way that many authors can't manage. How many female characters admit they "can be a bit of a round heels" when considering cheating on her ever faithful live-in lover...and you still love her? Lippman's also weaves a pretty dense story, which I also appreciate. My biggest fear right now, as I approach book five, is what is going to happen when the wonderful Deborah Hazlett is no longer the voice of Tess, and Crow, and Kitty, etc? I hate it when a narrator I've grown to love no longer accompanies a series I love...well, I do know that I'll find out. As will you, if you try her first book, Baltimore Blues. Thank you Laura Lippman and Deborah Hazelett. And of course, Tesser.

Tess on the Road

Tess NOT in Baltimore?? Though our heroine admits that she just plain doesn't see any point in traveling, this story is terrific, even if she spends much of her time feeling homesick.

Set in Austin and San Antonio, Texas, "In Big Trouble" explores Tess' relationship with her lover Crow in new ways. In unfamiliar surroundings, she learns a great deal about him and, ultimately, about herself. The story is filled with dead bodies, sad histories, and red herrings. Great stuff!
