I love Martha Grimes' mysteries, & this is one of the best. It concerns the abduction of a 15-year-old girl and horse racing. Detective Richard Jury's friend, Melrose Plant, plays an integral role in the novel, hurray!

This story takes place in Britain. The Grave Maurice is an English pub where this story begins. A woman is overheard discussing a the two year old disappearance of a young girl. She was the daughter of a well known surgeon, a surgeon who just happens to be treating Scotland Yard detective, Richard Jury. The one thing that all the characters in this book have in common is horses-race horses. This novel is about horse racing-what goes on in the barns, in the paddock and on the track. The author knows and loves horses and this mystery is authentic and will please any horse lover.

I discovered that I really can't get into Ms. Grimes novels with this one. Many people love her work though, so I am in the minority.

From the back cover: "In a pub called the Grave Maurice, Melrose Plant overhears the intriguing story of fifteen year old Nell Ryder, granddaughter of the owner of Ryder Stud Farm in Cambridgeshire, the heart of Britain's racing world. The girl was abducted nearly two years before and has never been heard from since. The tale is especially fascinating to Melrose Plant because the girl's father is Richard's Jury's surgeon. Recuperating from gunshot wounds, Jury is in dire need of something to occupy his time, even if the case is as cold as a case can get.....until another murder heats it up again."
