And When She Was Good: A Novel
by Laura Lippman (Review #2)

And When She Was Good Reviewed by Julie Moderson

OMG how did I not know about books by Laura Lippman? I am so impressed with her writing that I plan to go look for all of her books.

And When She Was Good is a very intense book about Heloise Lewis. She starts out in a rotten relationship and is turning tricks on the side for her boyfriend who is a drug addict. Young Heloise meets up with a pimp who puts her up in a house and she dresses and acts the part but something happens and she becomes a madam that is extremely successful. Who is being hurt by prostitution is a question that you hear asked in the story and you ask yourself as well.

There are so many twists and turns that you think you know how it will end and then there is a new direction that flowed so well you begin to see all the talent that Laura Lippman has. This is one of the best books that I have read.
