A wife has inexplicably run away from home, as Laura Lippman's mystery opens. And she has taken her children with her. Her husband, an upstanding but clueless man, comes to private eye Tess Monaghan for help. Lippman's title comes from a Talmudic proverb: "Evil inclination is at first as slender as a spider's thread, and then strong as a rope."
