Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "When Felix Brewer meets Bernadette "Bambi" Gottschalk at a Valentine's Dance in 1959, he charms her with wild promises, some of which he actually keeps. Thanks to his lucrative--if not all legal--businesses, she and their three little girls live in luxury. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi's comfortable world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes. Though Bambi has no idea where her husband--or his money--might be, she suspects one woman does: his mistress, Julie. When Julie disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she's left to join her old lover--until her remains are eventually found. Now, twenty-six years after Julie went missing, Roberto "Sandy" Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web stretching over three decades that connects five intriguing women. And at the center is the missing man Felix Brewer. Somewhere between the secrets and lies connecting past and present, Sandy will find the truth. And when he does, no one will ever be the same" -- from publisher's web site.

    The catalyst for Lippman's (And When She Was Good, 2012) smart and mesmerizing nineteenth work of fiction is the 1976 disappearance of sexy and calculating Felix Brewer, the head of a megaprofitable Baltimore gambling operation. In flight to avoid prison, he tries to do right by his gorgeous, loyal wife, Bambi, née Bernadette Gottschalk; his three temperamentally complex daughters; and his trusting mistress, Julie Saxony. But, instead, they all suffer emotional torment and financial deprivation. Ten years later, Julie's body is found in a park. Recently widowed former police detective Roberto "Sandy" Sanchez, a blue-eyed, blond Cuban, working cold cases freelance, now has a hunch that Saxony's murder can finally be solved. On this flexible frame, Lippman stretches a richly textured canvas that depicts, with wit and sensitivity, the wounded but tough women Felix left behind. As she traces the matrix of longing, jealousy, and betrayal that led to Julie's murder, Lippman incisively explores marriage, Jewish family life, class distinctions, and the power and liability of physical beauty, thus creating an involving and elegant novel of the psychological ravages of crime. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: An extensive marketing campaign will cover all media bases as best-selling Lippman goes on tour. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
