1 1099 Grimes, Martha End Of The Pier
Hardcover Knopf: New York; 1992; First US Edition Very Good in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
230 pages; Slightly cocked; dust wrapper has creased inside flaps; A complete departure for Grimes, who sets this novel in a small town somewhere in upstate New York, and peoples it with characters totally removed from Richard Jury and his ilk. In fact, the psycho-serial killer Sheriff Sam is investigating is only secondary to the novel. Grimes concentrates on the intense and shifting relationship between Maud and her son Chad, 20. Atmospheric and suspensful - the scenes at the eponymous end of the pier and Chad's visit to the small town department store are tours de force!
