Inspiring heroine!

Thank you Martha Grimes for writing an honest, thoughtful story about a character that has the guts to go where most do not want to know or think about. A very inspiring story. There are many of us that care like Andi. Bravo!

diatribe not novel

There really is no plot other than horrible mistreatment of pigs. While Andi is obviously intended to be heroic (and I even agree with the animal rights issue),I started to dislike the character. I usually love Martha Grimes, but I found this book a complete waste of ti...

    Fantastic

    Now I will have to go out and get Biting The Moon. This was a very well written book. I really enjoyed it. Graphic animal cruelty warning, but the point gets made with the guts of Andi and this suspenseful story. Good Job Martha Grimes

    an exciting suspense thriller

    Andi Oliver still suffers from amnesia (see BITING THE MOON) as she aimlessly wanders North Dakota. Following her rescuing of a donkey, Andi decides she needs a respite from her quest to find out her real name. So she settles in Kingdom.<BR/><BR/>However, she is hardly in her temporary digs when she runs into a dispute with local bullies. She obtains a job at Klavan¿s pig farm where the owner and workers mistreat the animals; Andi plans to change that practice starting with the nearby slaughterhouse for the inhumane cruel treatment of animals. However, as she stirs up the townsfolk dividing them between for or against her, a psychopath wants to kill her and someone else plans to torture her into revealing secrets she no longer knows.<BR/><BR/>Although the amnesia theme does not move at all and a late spin seems implausible, DAKOTA is an exciting suspense thriller especially when the focus is on the mistreatment of animals under the guise of feeding humans. The story line is fast-paced as Andi takes a respite from her quest only to find a social issue of cruelty that drives her to take action. Fans will enjoy her DAKOTA caper.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
