Publisher's Summary

The beguiling young sleuth Emma Graham returns.
Martha Grimes returns to her 12-year-old heroine, Emma Graham, in this suspenseful sequel to the best-selling Belle Ruin. Emma continues her investigation into the strange disappearance of the four- month-old Slade baby from the Belle Ruin Hotel more than 20 years before. The sudden appearance in town of the baby's father, Morris Slade, makes her even more determined to learn the truth. Then a mysterious drifter named Ralph Diggs appears at the Hotel Paradise, looking for work, ingratiating himself with everyone there. Everyone, that is, except Emma.
The perceptive Emma is bound once again to delight fans of the previous books Hotel Paradise, Cold Flat Junction, and Belle Ruin, and certain to win new listeners with her intuition and humor.

Take a listen before you buy

I just started listening to this book and am disappointed in the narration. The narrator tries to sound like a whimsical young girl. The audio is very high pitched and I found myself trying to increase the bass just so I could understand the narrator. It is very difficult to understand what is being said. I wish I had sampled it. I normally do, but I have always been a fan of Martha Grimes and that clouded my judgement. Maybe after I get farther than five chapters, I'll change my mind.

Great!

Great story line and the series keep you wanting more! I did not prefer this narrator at all and wished the author would have continued with Robin Miles!!!
