This is about as good as a mystery gets. A very well constructed and complicated plot, laugh-out-loud funny at times, a great dog, a flawed protagonist, some philosophy. Richard Jury is in a bar when a man comes in and tells him a story about a disappearance, setting him off on an investigation both cerebral and material. I’ll definitely read others from this series. Book on CD.

Jane Snyder Loved your critique, Sharon - what you wrote was exactly how I felt! This was my first Martha Grimes novel and I loved it so much that I then read book #1 to get to know the wonderfully quirky characters better. And I will continue on... As you said, not only are they good mysteries, but I learn from them! They're smart!
