New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman
returns with a superb novel of psychological suspense about
a pair of lovers with the best intentions and the worst
luck: two people locked in a passionate yet uncompromising
game of cat and mouse. But instead of rules, this game has
dark secrets, forbidden desires, inevitable betrayalsâ€”and
One is playing a long game. But which one?
They meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville,
Delaware. Polly is set on heading west. Adam says heâ€™s also
passing through. Yet she stays and he staysâ€”drawn to this
mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness both unnerves and
excites him. Over the course of a punishing summer, Polly
and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair.
Still, each holds something back from the otherâ€”dangerous,
even lethal, secrets.
Then someone dies. Was it an accident, or part of a plan? By
now, Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each otherâ€™s lives
and lies that neither one knows how to get awayâ€”or even if
they want to. Is their love strong enough to withstand the
truth, or will it ultimately destroy them?
Somethingâ€”or someoneâ€”has to give.
Which one will it be?
Inspired by James M. Cainâ€™s masterpieces The Postman
Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and
Mildred Pierce, Sunburn is a tantalizing
modern noir from the incomparable Laura Lippman.
