Description

“Laura Lippman is among the select group of novelists who have invigorated the crime fiction arena with smart, innovative, and exciting work.”
—George Pelecanos

“Lippman’s taut, mesmerizing, and exceptionally smart drama of predator and prey is at once unusually sensitive and utterly compelling.
—Booklist

Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of What the Dead Know, Life Sentences, and the acclaimed Tess Monaghan p.i. series, delivers a stunning stand-alone novel that explores the lasting effects on lives touched by crime. With I’d Know You Anywhere, Lippman—master of mystery and psychological suspense, winner of every major literary prize given for crime fiction, including the Edgar®, Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards—tells a gripping and richly textured tale of a young woman whose life dangerously entwines once again with a man on Death Row who had kidnapped her when she was a teenager. This is superior mystery writing in the vein of Kate Atkinson.

    Ok read, disappointing anti-climactic ending. Felt like something you might read as a multi-part magazine story vs a best seller.
  • Good book

    I was really unimpressed with the characters and the story in general. By the time I got to the end I just didn't care about anybody and the ending was utterly anticlimactic. It's a drag bc there was a lot of potential for a suspenseful story.
  • Good book

    I agree with the other views, good enough to finish but the suspense was constantly lost due to the nonsense additional information.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was hard to set it down even though I struggled to keep my eyes open. I am not the fastest reader, so it took me five days to get through it, but the ending was worth my "speed reading". Great book for leisurely reading!

    I finished the book, it was good enough to finish. However there was WAYYY too much text spent on mundane, superfluous information that did little to add to the meat of the story. My theory is that she wrote a great, compelling book and then discovered that it was only about a hundred pages long. Due to a number of foolish marketing philosophies she decided to make it a LOT longer, which can work (ex. The Millenium Trilogy); however, all of the excess was boring and pointless.
  • Really great!

    I found nothing interesting about this book. There was no "suspenseful page turners" and it was just bland. Like reading a story you already knew the end, but kept reading hoping it would change, but it did not.
