No sooner has Tess Monaghan hung her p.i.-for-hireshingle outside her new office on Butchers Hill when in walks Luther Beale. The notorious vigilante who shot a boy for vandalizing his car five years ago, Luther has just gotten out of prison and wants to make amends, he says, to the kids who witnessed his crime. He needs to find them first, and that's where Tess comes in.

But once she starts snooping, the witnesses start dying. Like it or not, she's gotten herself embroiled in a case that could have devastating repercussions for Tess, the city she treasures, and the young lives a corrupt system heartlessly destroys--as she follows a nasty trail of lies, money, and murder that winds from Baltimore's darkest corners all the way back to Butchers Hill.

This novel was hard for me to complete. There were two stories intertwined and it was hard to follow at times. I just couldn't get into this book - but I stayed with it to the end. I like mysteries but this one didn't make my top 10 list :(

The setting is Baltimore, and Tess has opened a detective agency in a seedy part of town. One client wants her to find 4 children who were with a boy when he was shot a few years ago. Another client asks for help in finding her sister. The research is interesting, and the results are unexpected. This is Lippman's third book, and she just keeps getting better at plotting and drawing real characters.
