New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman launches her newest novel, Sunburn, a superb story of psychological suspense about a pair of lovers with the best of intentions and the worst of luck: two people locked in a passionate yet uncompromising game of cat and mouse.
Polly and Adam meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware. Polly is set on heading west and Adam says he’s also passing through. Yet she stays and he stays—drawn to this mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness both unnerves and excites him. Over the course of a punishing summer, Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other—dangerous, even lethal, secrets.
Then someone dies. Was it an accident, or part of a plan? By now, Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other’s lives and lies that neither one knows how to get away—or even if they want to.
Inspired by James M. Cain’s masterpieces The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity, and Mildred Pierce, Sunburn is a tantalizing modern noir from the incomparable Laura Lippman.
