Description

For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid who doesn't even realize he holds an important key to the man's death.

Tess agrees to protect the boy's identity no matter what, especially when one of his friends is killed in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity. But with federal agents determined to learn the boy's name at any cost, Tess finds out just how far even official authorities will go to get what they want. Soon, she's facing felony charges, and Crow has gone into hiding with his young protege, so Tess couldn't deliver the kid to investigators even if she wanted to.

Time and time again, Tess is reminded of her father's old joke, the one about the most terrifying sentence in the English language: "We're from the government - and we're here to help."

Critiques

"Smartly plotted and paced." (Publishers Weekly)
"Lippman lets each character contribute a piece to the whole, which makes the story richer, and there's some nail-biting suspense as Tess faces off against what she thinks are the big guns of government." (Booklist)

Best yet of an excellent series!

The best of the series yet, with excellent narration. This seems the most fully developed of a very well developed series & character study full of authentic, believable people. I'm now a full-on Laura Lippman fan.

This book had a garbled section in chapter 31

I went back over and over to try to understand the story. Although the words were overlapped for only a short time, it was still disappointing. I urge somebody to fix the glitch.

Weirdly added music

This story was well written and read. The issue I had was with the added music between scenes or I am guessing CDs. It was very distracting. As someone who gets immersed in the book I am listening to, the switch from story to music was starteling. If you can get past that, which I did, it is a great story.

Good story.

There were times where the narration overlapped making it hard to understand what was being said. This happened a few times maybe mid way through the book. (specifically chapter 31 about a minute or so in). during a point where we learn something important about Jenkins and Collins. Despite this happening, I enjoyed this book.

lose the music

Whoever thought this random jarring music added to the experience was delusional. It almost ruined the book for me. I shudder to think of listening to another one.

Production Change is Annoying

This was one of the better Tess Monaghan stories. The characters were developed enough to make you care about what happened with them. As you are listening along, wrapped up in the story, between seemingly random chapters, there is suddenly loud sound effects and music, at a higher volume than the reading. I listen on headphones as I am doing my work and I found this jarring enough to be more than just a distraction from the story. Let the story speak for itself. Good writing does not need overwrought production.

Sound effects? Why?!

Finally got rid of that Ms Rosenblah only to mess it up with stupid sound effects?! Good story though and the sound is very minimal .... but totally unnecessary. Adds absolutely NOTHING to the story!

Good story, good narrator, obnoxious music

Would you consider the audio edition of No Good Deeds to be better than the print version?

I switch between print and audio versions, so I can continue with the book throughout my day.

Any additional comments?

The story, as with others in this series, was entertaining, and the narration was excellent. The periodic music interludes, however, were unnecessary and distracting. If other audio books by this publisher also have this "feature" I will stop purchasing them.

I don't know what it is...

I really enjoy this series. I finished this book in two days. I have been listening to these out of order, but there is no doubt in my mind that I will eventually get them all. I am going to start at the beginning. I can hardly wait for the next adventure with Tess Monaghan and friends.

Not enough comic relief between tense hours

Other Tess books have been more enjoyable, to me, when involve her family, espresso alt Aunt Kitty and close friends(Whitley, Crow )
