The problem when you’re an author renowned for an ongoing series of mysteries is that, as Martha Grimes puts it, everything you write is marketed as a mystery, even when there is nothing in a particular book to indicate a mystery.

That may be why some readers seem uncertain of how to respond to Grimes’ novel “Fadeaway Girl.” It is not a mystery, she says, but simply a story told through the eyes of a 12-year-old girl named Emma.

We last read about Emma in 2005’s “Belle Ruin” – this book directly follows that one, as Emma appoints herself to investigate a 20-year-od kidnapping case that may remind you of the Lindbergh case. Emma’s effort is propelled forward by the unexpected reappearance of a key figure in the case, but her inquisitiveness doesn’t always work in her favor.

    Ms Grimes, I enjoy all of your books, but favorites are the Richard Jury series. I am looking forward to you next Jury book. I hope it will not be a long wait.
