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
Martha Grimes is one of the few authors left carrying on the British detective mystery tradition, and doing it well. Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury and sidekick Melrose Plant continue to enthrall readers with their clever, darkly humorous crime-solving careers.
