Every Secret Thing (2003)

Every Secret ThingEvery Secret Thing by Laura Lippman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Laura Lippman does something that not every author achieves. She gets just enough inside the minds of her characters to let us know that other people think differently than we do. Minette Walters and Ruth Rendell have done that for me as well. So what we are left with is maybe not evil intent but something that is even more insidious.

Although I automatically will pick up a title by Laura Lippman, the plot of this tale was fascinating. Two eleven year old girls have been incarcerated for kidnapping and killing a child. Seven years later, shortly after being released, a similar kidnapping occurs. Coincidence or connection?
