Every Secret Thing by Laura Lippman

I finished this one on the plane from Chicago to Lincoln. It was a great book to read on the road, engrossing enough to grab you no matter how uncomfortable you might be.

This was Lippman's first stand-alone (not part of her PI Tess Monaghan series). I had read the description before and hadn't picked it up because I wrongly assumed it would be overly sensational and/or predictable.

Two little girls banished from a neighborhood birthday party take a wrong turn down an unfamiliar Baltimore street—and encounter an abandoned stroller with an infant inside. What happens next is shocking and terrible, and three families are irreparably destroyed.
My only complaint is that I felt the final unveiling was a little clunky. However, this could have been just me—by this time I had been on the road a long time and was super tired. I'll have to take another look at it.
