From the Publisher:
Twelve-year-old Emma Graham becomes obsessed with the mysterious drowning of another girl her age forty years in the past and comes face to face with a present-day murder, and the dark underside of her hometown. Reprint."ONLY THE MAGNIFICENT MARTHA GRIMES COULD HAVE WRITTEN THIS BOOK. . . . BRILLIANTLY RENDERED AND SUPERBLY TEXTURED."
--Andrew Vachss

A neglected lake, covered with water lilies. A once fashionable, now faded resort. A derelict house full of secrets, uninhabited for almost half a century. The death of a twelve-year-old girl forty years in the past. And another girl who becomes obsessed with this death. With her knack for encouraging adults to reminisce, she begins to piece together puzzles from the past and present.

HOTEL PARADISE is a delicate yet disturbing view of the decisions a young girl must make on her way to becoming an adult . . . and the choices she must make between right and wrong, love and truth, life and death. With its narrative grace, compelling characters, and intricate suspense, HOTEL PARADISE is Martha Grimes at the top of her form.

"Utterly engaging."
--The Washington Post Book WorldAt a rundown, once-fashionable lakefront resort hotel in a small town, a twelve-year-old girl becomes obsessed with the drowning death of another young girl forty years earlier, a fascination that has deadly repercussions in the present

Praise

"'Hotel Paradise' is brilliantly rendered and superbly textured, yes--but it is the amazing voice of a wonderful girl that provides such unique narrative force and lyrical beauty. If this book is a `mystery,' it's the mystery of life itself. As a reader I was enthralled. As a writer I was struck mute with jealousy." - Andrew Vachss 05/12/1996
