A cat-and-mouse game—but which is which?
They meet at a small-town tavern. Polly is heading west. Adam says he’s also passing through.
Yet she stays and he stays—drawn to this mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness unnerves and excites him. Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other—dangerous, even lethal, secrets that accumulate as autumn approaches.
Then someone dies. Was it an accident, or part of a plan? Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other’s lives and lies that neither knows how to get away. One is playing a long game. But which one? And will their love destroy them? Something—or someone—has to give in this tantalizing modern noir from the incomparable Laura Lippman.
“Full of just-one-more chapter, stay-up-late suspense, but packed too with nuance, subtlety, observation and humanity. Lippman is a natural storyteller at the height of her powers.”—Lee Child
“Modern noir at its best, it will delight old-movie lovers, satisfy suspense readers, and reward Lippman’s legion of fans.”—Library Journal
“Laura Lippman’s stories aren’t just mysteries; they are deeply moving explorations of the human heart. She is quite simply one of the best crime novelists writing today.”—Tess Gerritsen
“I love her books.”—Harlan Coben
