This review is from: The Horse You Came In On (Paperback)
I normally enjoy Martha Grimes books but this one is sooo boring. It is a very slight story; the edition I read was 502 pages long, but any decent editor would have reduced this by at least 50%, by removing lots of the 'quotes' from books written by characters (these served only to lengthen the story rather than adding anything to the plot) & by getting rid of the lecture on primogeniture as it applies to, among others, the British royal family - this was wrong, anyway, as Prince Andrew actually has two daughters, rather than sons.
Please read other Martha Grimes books - preferably in chronological order, as there are always references to previous books - but definitely give this one a miss!!
