Publisher's Summary

In the third trimester of her pregnancy, Baltimore private investigator Tess Monaghan is under doctor's orders to remain immobile. Bored and restless, reduced to watching the world go by outside her window, she takes small comfort in the mundane events she observes... like the young woman in a green raincoat who walks her dog at the same time every day. Then one day the dog is running free and its owner is nowhere to be seen.
Certain that something is terribly wrong, and incapable of leaving well enough alone, Tess is determined to get to the bottom of the dog walker's abrupt disappearance, even if she must do so from her own bedroom. But her inquisitiveness is about to fling open a dangerous Pandora's box of past crimes and troubling deaths . . . and she's not only putting her own life in jeopardy but also her unborn child's.
Previously serialized in the New York Times, and now published in book form for the very first time, The Girl in the Green Raincoat is a masterful Hitchcockian thriller from one of the very best in the business: multiple award-winner Laura Lippman.

I love Lippman and Emond is great!

I am a huge Laura Lippman fan - I've listened to all her novels. This story follows a recurring character named Tess, a private detective. It is a Rear Window-esque story with some nice little twists. I loved it but I wanted more. It was only 4+ hours long and not enough for me. Linda Emond is the very best at reading Lippman characters. I love to listen to her.

Rear Window with a twist

Linda Emond does an excellent job narrating this story. There were some very unexpected twists to this plot. I am growing very fond of the characters in the Tess Monaham series. I enjoyed it and will look for another book by Laura Lippman.
