About this title


When the lady he had hoped to marry is murdered, not even Richard Jury is above suspicion, and so Jury's friend, Melrose Plant, must probe the mystery of her death in his stead

From the Publisher:

As the contracts director for Ballantine, most of my work is finished before a manuscript ever arrives on an editor's desk. Because of that, I have to rely on my colleagues to tell me about authors they feel I would like to read. Recently while in a meeting, I let it slip that I had never read Martha Grimes. Immediately I was told that I had to, that I would love her -- and I was asked if I had lived under a rock. Since I had a long train trip ahead of me, I said I would try her -- and someone volunteered a copy THE OLD CONTEMPTIBLES from their office. I am hooked!!!. Richard Jury and his friends are such a smart, eccentric, and funny bunch that I ordered Martha Grimes' other books the morning after my train ride.

--Amelia Zalcman, Director of Contracts
