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.
