Real Disappearances Are The Premise For Laura Lippman’s ‘Lady In The Lake.'

On mixing fact and fiction

Once I’ve decided that a real-life crime is going to be my inspiration, I do no more research about it. Because I don’t really want to know about that crime. I’ve been drawn to it because of some sort of thematic possibility. … It’s like, this is the story I want to tell, so I can’t be weighed down by what’s true.

But I really do find that the tiny details, when you’re writing about a historical era, help it to come to life. I spent a lot of time looking at things that aren’t central to the book at all. I watched a lot of Dean Martin variety shows on YouTube. I like to look at magazines and study the ads because I feel like ads show us what people aspire to in the moment. … I read the recipes in The New York Times, and thought about: What would Maddie be looking at? What would she be seeing? What would be of interest to her?
