My latest review ran in the Chicago Sun-Times this morning. The book is Laura Lippman's By a Spider's Thread (William Morrow. $24.95). This is the 8th book in the terrific Tess Monaghan series and it's probably the best one yet.
Following on the heels of last year's powerful, gripping Every Secret Thing, Spider's Thread proves that Lippman is one of the strongest voices in crime fiction.
She also happens to be a very interesting person.  I interviewed her last year and found her fascinating.
