Life Sentences (2009)

Life Sentences: A Novel Life Sentences: A Novel by Laura Lippman

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've read one of the Tess Monahan crime books, but this is the first novel I've read by Laura Lippman.

Cassandra Fallows grew up in a racially diverse neighborhood in Baltimore. She has made her name as a writer of memoirs and is lost as to how to proceed with her work. Remembering a court case that has personal connections, she decides to investigate the story.

What follows is about our memories and what we perceive and what the facts may really be. It touches on the question of who's story is it? Who has the right to tell someone else's story and what if they get it wrong? Does it matter?
