Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a unique departure from her acclaimed Richard Jury novels, bestselling author Martha Grimes presents "a lyrical coming-of-age journey" (Chicago Sun-Times) featuring two characters from her previous novels.

A nameless young woman awakes in a strange bed-and-breakfast with a message that her "Daddy" will soon return. Fearing the worst, she flees into the wilderness and meets Mary Dark Hope. Together, the two track down the one person who holds the key to the girl's identity: The man who abducted her.

"A HARROWING ROAD TRIP." --New York Times Book Review

"MESMERIZING." --Los Angeles Times

Synopsis:

She didn't know who she was — or where she came from. But one morning she awoke in a strange bed-and-breakfast with a message that her "Daddy" would soon return from Santa Fe. Fearing the worst, this nameless young woman disappeared into the wilderness. She christened herself Andi Oliver, from the initials on her backpack, and lived in the mountains — utterly alone. Until she met Mary Dark Hope, a girl who shared her loneliness and confusion. Together, they vowed to track down the one person who held the key to Andi's identity: The stranger who abducted her...

This is a very dark & gripping tale. It made me sad & hopeful. It introduces a woman that I found admirable. I opened this book expecting a murder mystery. What I found was an eye opening tale of the darker side of what man does to the creatures - both human & other - who surround him. I couldn't put it down and when it ended, I wanted more.
