Seasonal Work: Stories (Compact Disc)
January 2022 Indie Next List
“What is there to say about a new Laura Lippman story collection except for: More, please! Each tale is a gem, and Tess Monaghan makes a couple of appearances. Laura Lippman knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men…and women.”
— Susan Taylor, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany, NY
In a suspenseful collection of stories featuring fierce women--including one never-before-published novella--New York Times bestseller Laura Lippman showcases why she is one of today's top crime writers.
The award-winning master of psychological suspense is in top form in this collection of diverse and diabolically clever stories.
In the never-before-published Just One More, a married couple--longing for that old romantic spark--creates a playful diversion that comes with unexpected consequences.
Lippman's beloved Baltimore PI Tess Monaghan keeps a watchful eye on a criminally resourceful single father in Seasonal Work, while her mother, Judith, realizes that the life of The Everyday Housewife is an excellent cover for all kinds of secrets.
In Slow Burner, a husband's secret cell phone proves to be a dicey temptation for a suspicious wife.
A father's hidden past piques the curiosity of a young snoop in The Last of Sheila-Locke Holmes.
Plus seven other brilliantly crafted stories of deception, murder, dangerous games, and love gone wrong--irrefutable evidence that Laura Lippman's riveting fiction will more than satisfy any crime reader.
The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!

Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock.
