Críticas:

Laura Lippman's New York Times bestseller is a florid noir that spans the decades. Murder and mayhem intertwine as shyster Felix Brewer disappears and leaves his wife, mistress and three daughters to untangle his messy past. ( Grazia)

The characters in Laura Lippman's After I'm Gone are so well drawn that it's easy to forget why they happen to be connected...Lippman is able to sustain a remarkable degree of detail about all [the] characters and still keep them sharply distinct and interesting. ( New York Times)

Lippman is as skillful at plot as she is at characters and setting, and the twists in the novel's final pages are both surprising and satisfying. They contain some well-earned messages about love and loyalty, illusion and delusion. Like everything else Lippman has written, After I'm Gone transcends the limits of genre. Like George Pelecanos, Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane and a handful of others, she writes books that are great fun but also serious fun. (Jonathan Yardley Washington Post)

One of richest portraits of (four) complicated women in ages. Smart, resonant, moving, deeply rewarding. (Megan Abbott Author of The End of Everything and Dare Me)

'Her books unfold the secrets of ordinary middle-class American women in effortless prose and great acuity. After I'm Gone could well be her best yet, a multi-narrative story about a man who falls in love with a woman and then disappears. A clever, gripping, page-turning delight.' ( Catholic Herald)

Coaxing the inevitable out of the improbable, Lippman is a bet you just can't lose. ( Kirkus, Starred Review)

Unputdownable ... Lippman doesn't deal in absolutes and it's her exploration of the nuance of loss-and its permeating presence, like carbon monoxide slowly poisoning the characters and their air-that makes this a must-read. ( Oprah)

Lippmann is one of those writers, like Flynn, whose books are more than their marketing ... Fans of Tana French and Donna Tartt, take note. ( Flavorwire)

'A riveting mystery involving great fully realised characters.' ( Woman & Home)

'In Laura Lippman's excellent After I'm Gone, Felix Brewer is a husband, father and adulterer . . . Lippman's insights into the psychology of family interactions are superbly convincing, and the gentle pace of the novel's first half leads to many twists and a clever, disturbing resolution.' (Marcel Berlins The Times)

'Thoughtful, persuasive and well worth reading.' (John O'Connell Guardian)

'Lippman has created a compelling mystery, but the book is also about the devastation caused by the disappearance of a powerful man at a time when women had little autonomy' (Joan Smith The Sunday Times)

'After I'm Gone is all about the women... Throughout, Lippman's prose is wonderfully fluid and rich without ever drawing attention to itself. There is an earthy poetry to her descriptions of Baltimore and its denizens, an impressive streetwise rhythm that slides along sublimely, really letting the story sneak under your skin.The fact that the author combines that richly evoked world with the momentum and drive of a murder mystery so well is a testament to her preternatural skill as a writer. As Sandy's investigation into Julie's death reaches a climax, the reader is desperate to find out what really happened, having emotionally invested so much in Lippman's amazing cast of strong, flawed, real women. A fantastic piece of work from a highly talented writer.' (Doug Johnstone Independent on Sunday)

'Within this powerful twisting, turning story, you'll find high drama and high emotion, truth and lies, desertion and discovery and suspicion and sacrifice as Lippman sets out to surprise and entertain us... but also to make us think.' (Pam Norfolk Lancashire Evening Post)

'This novel is a solid read, built around the mystery of the disappearance of a criminal businessman and the subsequent death of his mistress, Julie.' (Amy Nicholson Press Association)

Reseña del editor:

When Felix Brewer meets nineteen-year-old Bernadette 'Bambi' Gottschalk at a dance in 1959, he charms her with wild promises. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi's world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes.

Though Bambi has no idea where her husband - or his money - might be, she suspects one woman does: his devoted young mistress, Julie. When Julie herself disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she's left to join her ­old lover - until her remains are found in a secluded wooded park.

Now, twenty-six years after Julie went missing, Roberto 'Sandy' Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web of bitterness, jealously, resentment and greed stretching over the three decades and three generations that connect these five very different women. And at the center of every woman's story is the man who, though long gone, has never been forgotten: the enigmatic Felix Brewer.
