Read & Download ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ú Laura Lippman Laura Lippman Ú 5 Read & Download Free download Lady in the Lake Ost čak ni novine nisu zainteresirani za nestanak mlade crnkinjeMaddie Schwartz – koja je nedavno ostavila supruga i zaposlila se kao pomoćnica u dnevnim novinama Star – želi samo jedno svoju autorsku priču. I ve been wanting to read a book by this author for awhile now and the synopsis for this one sounded good so I finally took the plunge While this book can be classified as historical fiction it also fits in the mystery and women s fiction genres I ended up really enjoying this novel and look forward to reading other books by Laura LippmanIt s 1966 and Madeline Maddie Schwartz lives in Balti with her husband and teenage son It might seem like she has it all but she wants than just playing the role of dutiful housewife In search of living a meaningful life she leaves her husband and eventually finds work at a local newspaper She is on the low end of the totem pole there but she thinks the right story will get her some attention Maddie is particularly interested in finding out what exactly happened to Cleo Sherwood a young African American woman who was found dead in the fountain of a city park lake However her eagerness to find out the truth could come at an awful price for some I was surprised at how many different things the story was able to touch on such as race religion women in the workforce the newspaper industry and politics to name a few For me what really drove the story was the mystery of Cleo Sherwood so than the Maddie finding herself storyline While Maddie s perspective was predominately featured other characters including Cleo gave their spin on events throughout the book For the most part I liked this method of telling the story especially as it really demonstrated how Maddie s actions affected other people However a few characters really had nothing much to do with advancing the plot so even though the appearances were brief they just felt unnecessary This is the type of book in which there is a little bit of something for everyone and what each reader takes away from it might be different Definitely recommend especially if the 1960s Balti setting peaks your interest like it did for meThank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review
