ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780571321766
Winner of The eDunnit Award.
In an acclaimed modern twist on To Kill a Mockingbird, Laura Lippman once again proves herself to be one of crime writing's most thrilling reads.
Luisa Brant has just been elected State's Attorney, a job her revered father once held, and is prosecuting her first murder, by a homeless man on a woman to whom he had seemingly no connection.
However, as Luisa investigates, she is startled to learn that this murder might have its roots in a violent event in the past involving her own family. And that maybe no one - her precious father, her brother, her late mother - is quite who she thought.
The brilliant, moving and psychologically complex new standalone novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of After I'm Gone, And When She Was Good, and What the Dead Know.

'Wilde Lake is a psychologically complexed story with plenty of secrets that are deftly woven into the plot. Lippman is a master story teller who creates strong characters and a narrative that keeps you racing to the very last page.' - Press Association.
'You could label it as a subtle psychological thriller, or an unconventional police procedural novel, or a piece of literary fiction about family relationships and the power of grief and love. Whatever the label, Laura Lippman's 'Wilde Lake' remains a great accomplishment at any of these levels, and a truly brilliant read.' - Nic Mira, Thriller Books Journal.
'Lippman draws on two decades of crime reporting to produce a heart-stopping new thriller, which pivots on a state attorney's drive and cunning as she unravels a baffling murder case with personal implications.' - Oprah.
'Just finished Wilde Lake. Intriguing premise, stunning reveal, irresistible read.' - Val McDermid.
'Wilde Lake is a knockout, you should get right on that.' - Stephen King.
