Take A Break With Lady In The Lake
A short virtual escape now from pandemic pains -- listening again to Laura Lippman discuss her latest mystery, 'Lady in the Lake,' set in Baltimore in the 1960s. The first character we meet speaks from beyond the grave … apparently the victim of murder. She talks directly and disdainfully to the main character, Maddie Schwartz, who is transforming herself from conventional housewife to aspiring reporter. Other characters tell us bits of their own stories--and Lippman notes they understand what the ambitious Maddie doesn’t.
