"From its gripping opening pages...Life Sentences may be the most absorbing, entertaining mystery published in the last year."—Boston Globe USA Today calls Laura Lippman, "A writing powerhouse," and Life Sentences powerfully confirms it. Past and present, truth and memory collide in this searing novel from a New York Times bestselling author whose novels have won virtually every major prize bestowed for crime fiction—from the Edgar® to the Anthony to the Agatha to the Nero Wolfe Award. As she did in her blockbuster What the Dead Know, Lippman takes a brief hiatus from her popular series character, Baltimore p.i. Tess Monaghan, to tell a riveting story of deceptions and dangerously fragile truths that People magazine says, "Succeeds brilliantly."

This was really slow. I was hoping for an exciting ending but it was equally slow and dull.

I liked most of Lippman's work but wasn't impressed by this one the first time around. It is a slow-moving book difficult to "get into." I just reread it and like it a lot more the second time around. It's a more difficult read than some of her more fast-moving books. I wouldn't call it an "easy read" or a "fun read," but I did find it worthwhile and much more moving the second time around.

It's like Lippman didn't have an idea for this story and then wrote about not having an idea. Disjointed and unrewarding.

I usually really like Laura Lippman but I found this book to be boring.
