“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®, 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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed This One A very interesting novel that focuses on abduction and how people get on with their lives. Eliza is an interesting character, even if she is a subservient type of person. The ending isn't a crazy twist, but it does provide closure. This is the first novel I've read of Lippman's and I rather enjoyed her writing style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'd Know you Anywhere An interesting book that examines how a persons past traumatic experience can impact them in the future. It was a book I really wanted to keep reading but I found the climax to be pretty nonexistent.
