Especially in her latest chilling mystery, And When She Was Good. This story of a suburban madam who must fight to protect her son has been getting rave reviews across the board.
Salon says it "is really freaking great." (side note: this article says Gone Girl is a readalike...anyone read it? I really want to!).
Library Journal's starred (*) review proclaims that:
“ [Lippman] slowly ratchets up the tension until the final, blood-drenched showdown . . . It's a page-turner..."
And the starred (*) review from Booklist states:
"Lippman, so smart, clear-sighted, and polished and yet so intense and furious, surveys the intersection of perpetual misogyny and the criminality of sex work in this psychologically astute, diabolically witty, intricately suspenseful, and stylishly righteous tale of atrocities and revenge."
