Laura Lippman's new novel Sunburn begins with the arrival in a Delaware town – the kind of town most people pass through on their way to the beach without even noticing – of a woman who's definitely going to be noticed. But for all it's film noir atmosphere and slow-kindling unease, in this story of ill-starred lovers, readers of the author's addictive and unique works of mystery and suspense will find all the hallmarks of a Lippman classic: a precise sense of place, a love for certain aspects of the past, and a wry, captivating voice. The author joins us on the podcast to talk about Sunburn, and how the work of James M. Cain inspired this intoxicating tale.
