Martha Grimes is the bestselling author of eighteen Richard Jury mysteries and also the acclaimed fiction Foul Matter, Cold Flat Junction, Hotel Paradise, The End of the Pier, and The Train Now Departing.
From Library Journal:
Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury, visiting his friend Melrose Plant in Long Piddleton, looks into the murder of Simon Lean, whose body is discovered stuffed into an antique secretaire a abattant. Working with help from the usual cast of zany characters, Jury goes about his business in his customary leisurely and self-assured manner and pieces together a very strange tale of greed, jealousy, and murder. The careful reader will have solved the mystery long before the ending. But this ninth in a series, though not Grimes's best, is a welcome addition and sure to be popular. BOMC alternate. JV
