EVERY SECRET THING
About the Book
From critically acclaimed, multiple-award winner Laura Lippman comes a riveting story of love and murder, guilt and innocence.
Two little girls banished from a neighborhood birthday party find a stroller with an infant inside on an unfamiliar Baltimore street. What happens next is shocking and terrible, causing the irreparable devastation of three separate families.
Seven years later, Alice Manning and Ronnie Fuller, now eighteen, are released from "kid prison" to begin their lives over again. But the unanswered questions about the original crime continue to haunt the parents, the lawyers, the police, and all the adults in Alice's and Ronnie's lives. And now another child has disappeared, under freakishly similar circumstances.
Every Secret Thing is the winner of the International Association of Crime Writers' Hammet Prize and is now a major motion picture.
