9780061706554: I'd Know You Anywhere

Eliza Benedict’s past returns to haunt her when the serial killer she escaped from as a young girl walks back into her life. The new nail-shredding novel from New York Times bestseller, Laura Lippman.

25 years ago, he stole her innocence. Now he wants to get in touch.
Eliza Benedict cherishes her quiet existence with her successful husband and children in the leafy suburbs of suburban Washington. But her tranquillity is shattered when she receives a letter from the last person she ever expects – or wants – to hear from: Walter Bowman.
In the summer of 1985 when she was fifteen-years-old, Eliza was kidnapped by serial killer Walter Bowman, who targeted young girls like Eliza in a sexually motivated killing spree. Now facing lethal injection on death row, Walter is keen to make contact with Eliza, seemingly motivated by a desire to atone for his sins before he finally meets his maker.
Carefully, with some reluctance, she lets Walter enter her life, first by letter, then in person. Walter is keen to convince Eliza that he has changed but it becomes clear that Walter has more of an agenda than he first revealed. Cunning and manipulative, Walter is never more dangerous than when he can't get what he wants, and he wants something very badly. Disturbingly, he seems to have an ally working in the outside, one who seems to know everything about Eliza's life – including where she lives.
As Walter once again manages to exert his malign influence, Eliza must draw on all of her reserves of wisdom and strength as the battle of predator and prey once more plays out and she must face the past head on if she is to survive.
A taut and mesmerizing novel by the highly-acclaimed author of Life Sentences and Every Secret Thing.

Product Description:

-Laura Lippman is among the select group of novelists who have invigorated the crime fiction arena with smart, innovative, and exciting work.-
--George Pelecanos

-Lippman's taut, mesmerizing, and exceptionally smart drama of predator and prey is at once unusually sensitive and utterly compelling.
--Booklist

Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of What the Dead Know, Life Sentences, and the acclaimed Tess Monaghan p.i. series, delivers a stunning stand-alone novel that explores the lasting effects on lives touched by crime. With I'd Know You Anywhere, Lippman--master of mystery and psychological suspense, winner of every major literary prize given for crime fiction, including the Edgar(R), Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards--tells a gripping and richly textured tale of a young woman whose life dangerously entwines once again with a man on Death Row who had kidnapped her when she was a teenager. This is superior mystery writing in the vein of Kate Atkinson.

Review:

"Lippman's dedicated fans will find themselves well rewarded with I'D KNOW YOU ANYWHERE, an exceptional novel in every way, which is sure to gain her many new followers."--San Diego Union-Tribune

I'd Know You Anywhere is a crime story, but it's not a whodunit. Rather, it's an exquisitely sensitive story about the psychological impact of crime on its victims. It's a story about shame, about anger, about survivor's guilt.--Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Ex-journalist Lippman never forgets as she moves from past to present and from perspective to perspective that nothing is more important--or more elusive--than the truth."--Kirkus

"She's one of the best novelists around, period."--Washington Post

"I'd Know You Anywhere" ranks with her very best."--Associated Press

"I'd Know You Anywhere" continues Laura Lippman's extraordinary run of stand-alone novels (alternating with her lighter books about private eye Tess Monaghan).
