Laura Lippman: In Big Trouble (Tess Monaghan Novel Book 4)

Not worth the trouble
For some time I have been meaning to sample one of Laura Lippman's books about Tess Monaghan, first an investigative reporter and  now a "fearless" private investigator. I was disappointed.

Tess is a strange PI who really doesn't know what she is doing and stumbles around (trailing her pet Greyhound with her) doing silly things that accidentally lead her to solving a case. I really didn't connect with the character, the writing or the plot and only finished this book by flipping the pages and thinking that things would improve - which they didn't.
