And When She Was Good

Best-selling mystery author Laura Lippmann of the Tess Monaghan series  takes us in a new journey and a darker side in her first thriller. We're introduced to Helen Lewis, someone who have lived an ordinary life with some bad shady secrets, and then to Heloise Lewis, a grown-up Helen with a son and caught up with her past. We see how Helen becomes  present day Heloise and her shaky lifestyle, while she protects her son and keeps everything in check and a distance from others, as when there's a murder or two in her secret new life. And someone has in it for her. They're after her for blood with a shocking twist of its own in the ending that really shakes things up. What a bold transition from mystery to thrillers in a heartbeat, like Nevada Barr a decade ago with her own thriller titled 13 1/2.
