Cold Flat JunctionBook - 2001
In a sequel to Hotel Paradise, its "utterly engaging" (Washington Post Book World) young heroine continues her quest for the truth--about two mysterious deaths and her own lifeHotel Paradise and its twelve-year-old heroine, Emma Graham, were hailed by Booklist as "superb...beyond genre...one of the year's best!" Emma's quirky, mysterious, laugh-out-loud story, and her pursuit of old secrets in the cobwebbed corners of a once-fashionable resort hotel, added up to a novel that enchanted readers and drew comparisons with the work of both Barbara Vine and Henry James.In Cold Flat Junction, the irrepressible and intuitive Emma is still obsessed with the "accidental" drowning of an adolescent girl, forty years ago. She seeks to unravel the mystery of the drowning and the unsolved murders that wind back to it. Extraordinary range and depth, singular characters, and intricate suspense make this yet another book that "only the magnificent Martha Grimes could have written...brilliantly rendered and superbly textured" (Andrew Vachss).
