“During the summer of 1985, Walter Bowman is a young 'spree' killer when he kidnaps 15-year-old Elizabeth Lerner. This psychological thriller spans the following 20 years in the life of Elizabeth Lerner/Eliza Benedict. Having left behind the memory of her captivity and rescue, and of Walter's capture, trial, and death-sentence verdict, she is drawn back to the past when she is contacted by Walter's advocate asking her help in commuting his upcoming execution to a life sentence. This compelling and sensitive story of predator and prey is a work of suspense not to be missed.”
— Carol Hicks, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA

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.

Praise For…


“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

“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). From its unsettling opening to its breathtaking conclusion, “Anywhere” exemplifies Lippman’s strengths: compassion, intense prose and deep empathy for the snares of ambiguous emotions.
-Seattle Times

“Lippman deftly keeps the balls aloft with a strong structure -- a straight-ahead chronology interrupted by surgical flashbacks -- and evocative writing.”
-Cleveland Plain Dealer

“She’s one of the best novelists around, period.”
-Washington Post

“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

“With the summer reading season coming to a close, don’t let I’D KNOW YOU ANYWHERE be the one that got away.”
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“I’d Know You Anywhere” ranks with her very best.”
-Associated Press

The popular mystery-series author’s latest stand-alone: a terrifying story about a death-row inmate obsessed with the only victim he left alive.
-O magazine

This is a story that grips you not with suspense but with its acute psychological autopsy of a survivor. Lippman’s knack for elucidating the horrors humans can inflict on one another through violence and manipulation — while telling a compelling story —is disarming and fascinating.-
-USA Today

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

Laura Lippman is one of those uncommonly talented authors whose work continues to get better in every book she writes. I’d Know You Anywhere is a riveting psychological suspense novel.
-Globe and Mail (Toronto)
