Description (from the publisher):
A new Tess Monaghan novella from New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman, which first appeared in serial format in the the New York Times.

Tess Monaghan, Baltimore P.I., isn’t afraid of much. But when she is put on bed rest at 8 months pregnant, the spitfire investigator may have finally met her match, her own unborn child!

To escape the boredom, Tess begins marking the movements of her neighbors, á la
Rear Window. She is especially drawn to the girl in the green raincoat who takes daily walks with her Italian greyhound in a matching jacket. But one day when Tess spies the dog running away all on its own, she suspects foul play. And it turns out she isn’t far off. But, in doing what she does best, chasing after criminals and putting bad guys behind bars, will she have taken the ultimate risk with herself and her child?

Ooh, I'm waiting for that one too!

Wow another one by her? I hope she doesn't lose the quality like Patterson when they start mass productions.

I read one of Lippman's stand alone books and didn't really care for it. Is her series any better??

I haven't really ever read any of Lippman's series books, but I have read a couple of her stand alones, and liked them, so I am going to have to consider trying these from the beginning. Thanks for the heads up!

This does sound interesting. Loved REAR WINDOW, the old one.
