Over three successive nights, Harry spins a complicated story about a good friend of his whose wife and son (and dog) disappeared one day as they were viewing property in Surrey. They've been missing for nine months—no trace, no clue, no lead as to what happened. He's a fascinating bloke, this Harry Johnson—rich, handsome, unattached, and brainy about the esoteric subject of quantum mechanics, a field in which the vanished woman's husband, Hugh Gault, excels: He's an authority on string theory, which has some pretty funny notions about the nature of reality. Jury wonders: Is Harry Johnson winding him up? Or did it really happen? The dog did come back-but how? And from where? And when Jury investigates, all seems to be just as Harry described it. Until they find the body.

usually like Martha Grimes, this is not her usual entertaining and clever writing.

Excellent mystery of a missing mother, son and dog- but the dog came back.
Engaging and thought provoking until the mystery starts to unravel and then it becomes just another detective VS the criminal and can good beat evil.
Great to listen to while driving on a long trip.
