“It's fair to say that not many know Baltimore and Maryland as well as Laura Lippman, and her latest stories in Hardly Knew Her really delve into the lives of both the under-employed and the moneyed from every level. A terrific collection by a wonderful writer!”

New York Times bestselling author and winner of every major prize awarded for crime fiction—including the Edgar®, Anthony, Shamus, Agatha, and Nero Wolfe Awards—Laura Lippman brilliantly demonstrates her astonishing agility as a short story writer with Hardly Knew Her. A sterling collection of sixteen suspenseful short fictions and novellas—most set in and around her beloved Baltimore and several featuring her popular series character private investigator Tess Monaghan—Hardly Knew Her was called, “Riveting…One of the best collections released in some time” by the Boston Globe. The Seattle Times says, “something in the short-story form brings out the wicked in Laura Lippman,” and this exceptional collection is indisputable proof that Lippman is without peer as she walks boldly on the dark and dangerous side.
