This was the most unsatisfying mystery I ve ever read.

Rather disappointing I ve come to expect better from Ms Grimes I couldn t help thinking this effort must have been contractually required A rather elaborate the dog came back story forms the basis of the mystery, but the mystery was neither funny, nor particularly engaging Completely lacking in any kind of resolution, CID Jury seems to have been outsmarted We never find out the how or the why of an elaborate setup for a murder and the murderer appears to have gotten away with it Sor Rather disappointing I ve come to expect better from Ms Grimes I couldn t help thinking this effort must have been contractually required A rather elaborate the dog came back story forms the basis of the mystery, but the mystery was neither funny, nor particularly engaging Completely lacking in any kind of resolution, CID Jury seems to have been outsmarted We never find out the how or the why of an elaborate setup for a murder and the murderer appears t
Do you read mysteries as I do occasionally My wife loves them and I pick one of hers up now and again There are two authors I especially enjoy in this genre, Elizabeth George and she of this book, Martha Grimes Ms George seems to have a very keen knowledge of London her descriptions take one right into the place I think you could follow along on a map Then too her characters are quite compelling you definitely want to know what s going to happen with these people in the next book.But thi Do you read mysteries as I do occasionally My wife loves them and I pick one of hers up now and again There are two authors I especially enjoy in this genre, Elizabeth George and she of this book, Martha Grimes Ms George seems to have a very keen knowledge of Lond
Seriouslywhat is with all the quantum mechanics showing up in stories lately Is there a sudden interest in space time continuum theory that I ve missed the boat on Every time it comes up in a story, I have to have the rudimentary principles explained to me.AGAIN Trust me.I get it by now The only author who has successfully used quantum mechanics in their plot without completely o

I will not spend time on an extensive review, because other reviewers have highlighted the problems I was quite disappointed with this book, and am sorry I wasted my time reading it The ending was indeed dissatisfying, as was all the irrelevant talk about quantum physics. Not my thing2stars
