 The Black Cat

by Martha Grimes

"She is young. She is ravishing. She is clad in stunning designer clothes, from Yves St. Laurent gown to Jimmy Choo shoes. But with two bullets in her, she is very dead. What is the body of an apparently wealthy and sophisticated young woman doing in the back of the Black Cat, an unassuming pub in the sleepy English village of Chesham? This is a British mystery, with ... whimsical humor, enlivened by careful plotting and enriched by an unexpected yet thoroughly logical conclusion." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch
