About the Book and Author
New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman returns to Thurber House with her latest novel, Sunburn, a tale about a pair of lovers with the best intentions and the worst luck. Two people are locked in a passionate, yet uncompromising game of cat and mouse. But instead of rules, this game has dark secrets, forbidden desires, inevitable betrayals, and murder. One is playing a long game. But which one? Inspired by James M. Cain's masterpieces The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and Mildred Pierce, Sunburn has been described as a tantalizing modern noir.


Laura Lippman was a newspaper reporter for twenty years. She is best known as the author of the Tess Monaghan series. She has been the recipient of Edgar, Anthony, Agatha, Shamus, Nero Wolfe, Gumshoe, and Barry awards.
