    I'm so glad I decided to read this book; it has changed my life for the better. I love the characters and the issues Grimes describes in this novel. In this series, the author goes behind the scenes at a factory farm and also explores the issue of trapping animals. I so admire Andy Oliver for doing what needs to done even though it's heart-breaking to witness. Sad and cringe-worthy at times, this book was so poignant and very moving. Andy is a true heroine! I also loved Dakota by the same author. You might also enjoy the Alphabet series by Sue Grafton and the novels of Marcia Muller. The Jack Reacher series by Lee Child is also a wonderful series of books.

    great book

    Belonging to a literary club-we are great at tearing books apart at our meetings where we review the books--This book I will not tear apart-I am going to think of this as a fairy tale and I enjoyed it very much-especially the rafting trip--that was well written--the book got a little disconnected in places-The only thing that did bother me--Mary-14 yrs old would have never had the insight and understanding of people at that age- an older person -yes. Very enjoyable read-hard to put down.

    Not the usual Grimes...

    I prefer the Richard Jury novels...this was a little predictable and boring. Why ruin a great thing by trying something new?

    Not Very Good

    This book was extremely slow. I couldn't ever get into it. It seemed like an awkward front for a PETA commercial.

    I was intrigued by the description of the story on the book jacket and so purchased it. The story was just not believable to me and seemed disjointed. I was saddened by the plight of animals and people in the book and didn't feel their predicaments were resolved to my satisfaction. The only reason I finished the book is that I can't bear to leave one unfinished. I have never read Martha Grimes before and will investigate reviews before purchasing another of her books.
