The Girl in the Green Raincoat - Laura Lippman

I love this homage to "Rear Window" going on. Tess is bed bound (or in this case bound to a new addition to the house) after experiencing a high risk pregnancy. She and Crow are expecting a daughter. It feels like a lot has passed in this series since I thought before Tess was indifferent to kids. 


Tess has been watching a woman in a green raincoat walk her dog for a few days and then realizes that the woman has not appeared. Since Tess can't move, she pushes on Whitney and Crow to go looking for the dog. Once found it becomes apparent that something has happened to the owner.
