"The Black Cat" - A New Book from Martha Grimes.
Good news / bad news for fans of the Martha Grimes series featuring Inspector Richard Jury: There is a new book out, The Black Cat. However, at least one reviewer, Publishers Weekly, calls the book a "subpar effort from one of mystery's major stars [that] will appeal mainly to fans of the talking animal subgenre." Talking animals? This doesn't bode well.
