More information about the book

The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman. A Tess Monaghan Mystery. William Morrow Trade Paperback, January 2011.

The storyline is, to be sure, a little thin here and there and goes off on seemingly unrelated tangents, but the credibly developed mystery plot offers a satisfactory and enjoyable puzzle to solve.
