Wilde Lake/Laura Lippman/352 pgs.
Luisa "Lu" Brant has been elected state's attorney for Howard County, Maryland. She has decided to prosecute a case in which a seemingly homeless man has been charged with the murder of a woman in her home. It's not a case to warrant making headlines, but Lu feels she has something to prove, especially since she will be going against her former boss--the man she beat in the election. However, all is not what it seems on the surface, and the reader is given a look into past events involving Lu and her family. It's an interesting book: the plot and story held my attention. That being said, I just didn't like any of the characters in the story, which makes it difficult for me to give a strong recommendation!
