CHARACTERS í eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Laura Lippman CHARACTERS ¼ Dream Girl Laura Lippman ✓ 8 CHARACTERS T novel Dream Girl swears she will be coming to see him soon The character is completely fictitious but no one has ever believed Gerry when he makes that claim Is he the victim of a cruel prank or is he actually losing his mind★ There is no record of the calls according to the log on his phone Could there be someone he has wronged★ Is someone coming to do him harm as he lies helplessly in bed★Then comes the morning he wakes up next to a dead body and realizes his nightmare is just beginni I received an advanced readers copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewLaura Lippman much like Tana French never disappoints me And though Dream Girl is something of a departure for her it is hugely entertaining brilliantly plotted and really a lot of fun To reveal the intricacies of the plot is to spoil but suffice it to say Lippman has some ideas about masculinity the metoo movement and the worlds of academia and publishing Her characters are spot on all too believable and I particularly love the references to popular books and movie that are sprinkled in the storytelling Still set in her beloved Balti Dream Girl is definitely a lighter work than her previous novels though Lippman herself describes it as her first horror novel If it represents Lippman taking a different road I hope she continues down it for some time
