About the Author:

Martha Grimes is the bestselling author of eighteen Richard Jury mysteries and also the acclaimed fiction Foul Matter, Cold Flat Junction, Hotel Paradise, The End of the Pier, and The Train Now Departing.

From Booklist:

Emma Graham, last seen in the disappointing Belle Ruin (2005), returns to better form in this latest episode in Grimes’ series starring the precocious 12-year-old sleuth. Emma, a cub reporter for the Conservative, is nearly finished telling the serialized story of her harrowing experience in “The Tragedy at Spirit Lake.” She’s distracted, though, by questions surrounding the disappearance of Baby Fay 20 years prior. The sudden arrival of two people—the baby’s father and drifter Ralph Diggs—piques her curiosity. Diggs wins the hearts of everyone in town, except Emma, who manages to put herself in considerable danger as she searaches for the truth about Baby Fay. Emma is not without her charms (especially when she’s hiding empty rum bottles on her great aunt’s behalf or outwitting a dim-witted sheriff’s deputy), but to enjoy her adventures, readers must suspend considerable disbelief to accept the idea of a 12-year-old who displays far more savvy than most adults. That hurdle crossed, however, this is an agreeable thriller from a seasoned hand. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Grimes’ Richard Jury novels sell better than this series, but there will be more than enough spillover to generate requests in public libraries. --Mary Frances Wilkens
