Sunburn by Laura Lippman

Into the Wild

Sunburn Read Online Free - One is playing a long game. But which one?

They meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware. Polly is set on heading west. 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 that begin to accumulate as autumn approaches, feeding the growing doubts they conceal.

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. Is their love strong enough to withstand the truth, or will it ultimately destroy them?

Something—or someone—has to give.

Which one will it be?

Great book. Well paced. Beautifully observed details. Interesting characters and nuance in the right places. The overall mystery sustains itself well for quite a lot of the time. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and the protagonist who is flawed and brilliant and ruthless and unapologetic.

3.5 Stars. I loved the book until about the 75% mark. Then I found myself surfing Instagram and fast forwarding. It was just a little too slow of a burn for me. Please note that I don’t have the best attention span for books like these unless I love the subject or the characters. I did enjoy the...

Laura Lippman’s new stand-alone “Sunburn” is different from anything she’s previously written but don’t let that scare you off. It’s equally as good as her other novels, but this time she follows the inspiration of James M. Cain’s psychological crime noir novels. As the character’s history and mo...

Ten years ago or so, I had the fortune of meeting this author when she was at ALA in Chicago. She was just becoming an author to watch, was gracious and kind. We were given a copy of her newest book, one I went home and read. Loved it and have read her ever since. Polly and Adam meet in a little...

4.5 stars, rounded up If you enjoy ‘modern noir’ with deeply flawed characters, as I do, you will love Sunburn. What a terrific read! I recommend picking this book up without knowing a lot of details of the plot. (No spoilers in this review!) I listened to the entire book on a long car trip last S...

Two men, more added on, one woman, many lies and a lot of deceit. SUNBURN has your brain burning to find out what is really going on. Polly has just left her husband, Gregg, and her daughter, Jani, while they were at the beach. She had it planned, but we don't know why. Gregg was ready to leave the...

A redhead sitting alone in a darkened bar with sunburned shoulders. Sounds like some bad decision-making here. Shoulda known better...... Laura Lippman begins her story with two elusive strangers, a bit of alcohol, and a definite casting their fates to the winds. This ain't the Bahamas, folks. It's...
