This may be one of those books better read than listened to. It moves so slowly that it was at times hard to follow the plot and the characters.
For this hardcore Martha Grimes adict, this was a disappointing audiobook. I found it very slow, and the reading at times made is hard to know which character was speaking.

Totally unacceptable. Pass this one up and hope for a better one next time.
Martha Grimes is the bestselling author of twenty-three novels, including "The Old Wine Shades" and "Dust,"
