And When She Was Good Summary


And When She Was Good by Laura Lippman

In the comfortable suburb where she lives, Heloise is just a mom, the youngish widow with a forgettable job who somehow never misses her son's soccer games or school plays. But in discrete hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams - if you can afford her hourly fee. For more than a decade, Heloise has believed her unorthodox life to be a safe one; rigidly compartmentalized, maintaining no real friendships and trusting very few people. But now this secret life is under siege. Her once oblivious accountant is asking loaded questions about her business. Her longtime protector is hinting at new, mysterious dangers. Her employees can no longer be trusted. Her ex, the one who doesn't know he's the father of her son, is appealing his life sentence. And, one county over, another so-called 'suburban madam' has been found dead in her car, an apparent suicide... Can Heloise stay alive long enough to remake her life again, and save her son? Can she really expect to leave everything else behind?

And When She Was Good Reviews


Heloise Lane is a single suburban mother who also happens to run a high-priced escort service. When the barrier between her two lives starts to crumble, the results are mesmerizing. Lippman writes with clarity and power. STEPHEN KING (Best reads of 2012) 'One of the best novelists writing today.' TESS GERRITSEN Laura Lippman is not just the author of top-notch psychological thrillers, she is one of the finest writers in America. MARK BILLINGHAM What a knock-out she is. A really superb multifaceted storyteller whose Baltimore-based crime and suspense novels are so much more than mere whodunits. DAILY MAIL
