Waiting on Wednesday: I’d Know You Anywhere
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s pre-publication can’t wait to read selection is:
I’d Know You Anywhere by Laura Lippman
After living in England, Eliza has returned to the Washington, D.C., area where she grew up with her successful husband and their sneaky 13-year-old daughter and sweet young son. Some might consider full-time housewife Eliza a throwback and oddly passive, yet as Lippman slowly reveals, she is actually a woman of considerable, if covert, wisdom and strength. Eliza’s story unfolds in two time frames. One exposes the profound complexity of her horrifying ordeal in 1985 when, at age 15, she was kidnapped and held hostage by Walter, a brooding, diabolically enthralling mechanic on a bloody spree, raping and murdering young women. The other tracks Eliza’s response when Walter, on Death Row just weeks away from his execution, manages to once again exert his sinister, manipulative powers.
This title will be released on August 17, 2010.
