usually like Martha Grimes, this is not her usual entertaining and clever writing.

Excellent mystery of a missing mother, son and dog- but the dog came back.
Engaging and thought provoking until the mystery starts to unravel and then it becomes just another detective VS the criminal and can good beat evil.
Great to listen to while driving on a long trip.
