Pre-pub Book Buzz: The Most Dangerous Thing by Laura Lippman

Laura Lippman's latest stand-alone thriller is set for release on Tuesday! Thriller fans, if you're not reading Lippman yet, mark your calendar and make this your first. I honestly have never been disappointed by her books.

With eleven books in her Tess Monaghan series and six stand-alones, Lippman has become one of the genres favorites. Her blend of psychological suspense and smart plots make her books appealing to a wide range of readers. I personally have been a fan for quite some time now, coming to the series around 2000.

Here's a bit about The Most Dangerous Thing:

Some secrets can’t be kept. . . .

The Most Dangerous Thing

Years ago, they were all the best of friends. But as time passed and circumstances changed, they grew apart, became adults with families of their own, and began to forget about the past—and the terrible lie they all shared. But now Gordon, the youngest and wildest of the five, has died and the others are thrown together for the first time in years.

And then the revelations start.

Could their long-ago lie be the reason for their troubles today? Is it more dangerous to admit to what they’ve done or is it the strain of keeping the secret that is beginning to wear on them and everyone close to them? Each one of these old friends has to wonder if their secret has been discovered—and if someone within the circle is out to destroy them.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I came across this interview with Craig Ferguson on the Late Late Show from last fall promoting her prior release, I'd Know You Anywhere.
