Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Martha Grimes's Hotel Paradise was hailed by Booklist as "superb...beyond genre...one of the year's best." Now, Grimes returns to the same small town, intertwining the threads of one young girl's unexplained death with another young girl's attempt at making sense of her own life.

Review:

"Martha Grimes' strength as a writer lies in her ability to create a vivid community of characters whose eccentric personalities and day-to-day mishaps are as intriguing as the mystery itself. One of her stock figures, especially in the Richard Jury series, is a precocious, but forlorn, child who waits around hoping for someone to take an interest in him or her. In this second mystery novel featuring young detective Emma Graham, Grimes once again has moved the neglected child to the center of the drama. Emma's curiosity, as well as her emotional attachment to the case, leads her on a spirited chase to catch the killer before the sheriff even knows that she is investigating it. The mystery itself is often hard to follow, but you quickly become so absorbed in the characters that you forget to notice." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Review:

"Interweaving humor and pathos, Martha Grimes delves far below the surface to the center of what makes us irrevocably human and creates characters that we come to know and to love. And as with all of her magical novels, Cold Flat Junction is more than just something to read — it's something to experience." bookreporter.com
