Description

From ‘The Everyday Housewife’ to ‘The Cougar’, ‘Tricks’ to ‘Snowflake Time’, Laura Lippman’s sharp and acerbic stories explore the contemporary world and the female experience through the prism of classic crime, where the stakes are always deadly.

And in the collection’s longest piece, the novella ‘Just One More’, she follows the trajectory of a married couple who, tired of re-watching ‘Columbo’ re-runs during lockdown, decide to join the same dating app:

‘Why would we do something like that?’
‘As an experiment. And a diversion. We would both join, then see if the service matches us. Just for grins…’
