Year 6, Book 89

89. The Most Dangerous Thing by Laura Lippman
I’ve really enjoyed Lippman’s last few books, which to me seemed a little bit more outside of the mystery genre and more character driven novels. This book holds to that same standard, but I didn’t like it nearly as much for some reason. The story revolves around a set of five friends who have a secret from their childhood in the late 1970s that has come back to haunt them in the present. The story switches back and forth from past to present gradually leading you closer to finding out what the secret is and why it has been resurrected. I found it to be a really slow moving book and never really found myself getting invested in any of the characters. It was an ok book, and if you’re a Lippman fan you should read it, but I definitely like some of her other stuff better.
