Richard Jury Mysteries #13: The Case Has Altered Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The thirteenth mystery for Richard Jury finds the detective investigating the murder of two women in the Lincolnshire fens. Both victims are connected to the wealthy owner of the Fengate estate: one a kitchen maid, and the other, the owner's ex-wife. But Jury has more at stake than just catching a killer, as the prime suspect is a woman who's presence in his life is becoming meaningful in a way he can't explain....

Review:

"This is the 13th mystery featuring Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury, and his supporting cast: Melrose Plant, Sgt. Wiggins, Marshall Trueblood, and others. The book's setting is the Fens in Lincolnshire, where two women are murdered—one is shot, the other strangled. The accused in both cases is Jury's inamorata, Jennifer Kennington, and he pursues this case more doggedly and with greater passion than those with which he has been concerned in the last few outings. While Grimes is a leisurely storyteller, the plot is agreeably convoluted, the characters sharply drawn, and the setting wondrously depicted." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
