The Old Wine Shades by Martha Grimes

The Old Wine Shades is the name of wine bar where Detective Inspector Richard Jury is enjoying a drink when he's told an unusual story about a man whose wife, son, and dog just disappeared one day. The wife and son were never heard of again, and the dog came back nine months later. Jury begins looking into the story, and the wife and son really did exist and then mysteriously disappear one day, and the man left behind by his family is so distraught that he checked himself into a mental facility. He's also a physicist and he wonders if they stepped into another dimension. Jury is convinced there are more rational explanantions for whatever happened, but it's certainly one baffling case. Martha Grimes' novel has received mostly positive reviews with BookReporter.com saying, "Of the twenty Richard Jury mysteries, this is perhaps one of the more ingeniously plotted and wittily told. Martha Grimes and Richard Jury aren't getting older --- they're just getting better."
