Read full description of the books:
Andi Oliver is back! Martha Grimes fans have waited nearly nine years for the return of the amnesiac heroine of Biting Moon, and this bristling stand-alone sequel won't disappoint them. In the interim, Andi's continued to drift, moving through the West, from one waitress job to the next. When she finally reached North Dakota, she signs up at Klavan's, a pig-farming factory that seems to specialize in skirting the law. While Andi is attempting to cope with dastardly livestock practices, her past is catching up with her. Two people are on her trail: One is a homicidal psychopath; the other, a person demanding secrets that Andi no longer has.

Read information about the authorMartha Grimes is an American author of detective fiction.
She was born May 2 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to D.W., a city solicitor, and to June, who owned the Mountain Lake Hotel in Western Maryland where Martha and her brother spent much of their childhood. Grimes earned her B.A. and M.A. at the University of Maryland. She has taught at the University of Iowa, Frostburg State University, and Montgomery College.
Grimes is best known for her series of novels featuring Richard Jury, an inspector with Scotland Yard, and his friend Melrose Plant, a British aristocrat who has given up his titles. Each of the Jury mysteries is named after a pub. Her page-turning, character-driven tales fall into the mystery subdivision of "cozies." In 1983, Grimes received the Nero Wolfe Award for best mystery of the year for The Anodyne Necklace.
The background to Hotel Paradise is drawn on the experiences she enjoyed spending summers at her mother's hotel in Mountain Lake Park, Maryland. One of the characters, Mr Britain, is drawn on Britten Leo Martin, Sr, who then ran Marti's Store which he owned with his father and brother. Martin's Store is accessible by a short walkway from Mountain Lake, the site of the former Hotel, which was torn down in 1967.
She splits her time between homes in Washington, D.C., and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
