'Every time Laura Lippman comes out with a new book, I get chills because I know I am back in the hands of the master. She is simply a brilliant novelist, an unflinching chronicler of life in America right now, and Sunburn is her dark, gleaming noir gem. Read it.' Gillian Flynn 'Extraordinary . . . full of just-one-more chapter, stay-up-late suspense, but packed too with nuance, subtlety, observation and humanity.' Lee Child 'Note-perfect noir ... not to be missed.' Megan Abbott What kind of woman walks out on her family? Gregg knows. The kind of woman he picked up in a bar three years ago precisely because she had that kind of wildcat energy. And now she's vanished - at least from the life that he and his kid will live. We'll follow her, to a new town, a new job, and a new friend, who thinks he has her figured. So who is this woman who calls herself Polly? How many times has she disappeared before? And who are the shadowy figures so interested in her whereabouts? Laura Lippman's brilliant new novel - Anne Tyler's Ladder of Years as if written by James M. Cain - will ensnare you in the life of one of crime fiction's most unforgettable heroines.
