The Horse You Came In On (Richard Jury, #12) Intricate And Entertaining A Delicious Puzzle The Boston GlobeThe Murder Is In America, But The Call Goes Out To Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury Accompanied By His Aristocratic Friend Melrose Plant And By Sergeant Wiggins, Jury Arrives In Balti, Maryland, Home Of Zealous Orioles Fans, Mouth Watering Crabs, And Edgar Allan Poe In His Efforts To Solve The Case, Jury Rubs Elbows With A Delicious And Suspicious Cast Of Characters, Embarking On A Trail That Leads To A Unique Tavern Called The Horse You Came In On. Like this series plots, cast, and humor usually there is some Some vulgarity, no sex or graphic violence Read well by Steve West Recommended. I still enjoy the interactions of Plant, Jury and Wiggins but I really disliked this book and almost quit a couple of times I found it rambling and disjointed with way too much unnecessary babbling about sports and reading out loud of manuscripts.If there were
A convoluted story within several minor stories and several characters The setting is in England initially and then moves to Balti, MD Three murders have occurred there which are seemingly unrelated Several of the characters are writers, one of who has lots of writer s block and has a competitor who is stealing the content of her novels Some small romances are ongoing The conversations are misleading as so much of the time, no one wants to really say what they are thinking There are
I began reading this series at the beginning, intending to work my way straight through to the end It started out okay, and I enjoyed the characters the author developed not only Detective Superintendent Richard Jury and his wealthy, once titled buddy, Melrose Plant, but also the recurring villagers of Plant s acquaintance and Jury s apartment house neighbors and colleagues at work Often they were better done than the actual plot, which are mostly getting sloppier and less thoughtful This I began reading this series at the beginning, intending to work my way straight through to the end It started out okay, and I enjoyed the characters the author developed not only Detective Superintendent Richard Jury and his wealthy, once titled buddy, Melrose Pl
Not my favorite Jury novel I do remember reading this before when it first came out and thought it not up to par with most of the earlier novels, and this second time through confirmed that impression for me Plenty of Melrose Actually, I really like the mystery part dealing with Melrose, Jury and Wiggins But none of the new characters involved pulled me in, most were simply there and flat The whole thing with the stories those written by Melrose, Trueblood, Ellen, Salve and Poe being read Not my favorite Jury novel I do remember reading this before when it first came out and thought it not up to par with most of the earlier novels, and this second time through confirmed that impression for me Plenty of Melrose Actually, I really like the mystery part dealing with Melrose, Jury and Wiggins But none of the new characters involved pulled me in, most were simp
Prose seems to be falling off just a bit, said Jury Definitely fallen off, said Jury, yawning.Yes, even Superintendent Richard Jury seems to acknowledge it in this Martha Grimes cozy mystery The prose has definitely fallen off Fallen off a cliff, in fact.When I commit to reading a book, I stick with it to the very end Even when I find myself skimming rapidly over sections of it because the writing is so bad That certainly happened with this book Frankly, it was one of those times when Prose seems to be falling off just a bit, said Jur
In this Richard Jury mystery, Grimes takes her British detective to Grimes s native Maryland There, in Balti, the idea of a newly found Poe story provides a fun side mystery to that of three murders, to which the book devotes too little attention The book aspires to be an account of writing and authenticity, but few readers will be patient enough to enjoy its message The protagonist s catty, class conscious British acquaintances may bemuse regular followers of the series, but are just as In this Richard Jury mystery, Grimes takes her British detective to Grimes s native Maryland There, in Balti, the idea of a newly found Poe story provides a fun side mystery to that of three murders, to which the book devotes too little

I like any mystery that involves an English detective and an English cast of characters This series by Ms Grimes fits that bill However, this particular story was not my favorite In fact it was really strange For some reason, there were a couple of stories within the mystery story I don t think the actual stories added anything to the mystery I can t be sure because I skipped most of them I kept checking to see if I was missing something At the end they didn t seem to added much to the I like any mystery that involves an English detective and an English cast of characters This series by Ms Grimes fits that bill However, this particular story was not my favorite In fact it was really strange For some reason, there were a couple of stories within the mystery story I don t think the actual stories added anything to the mystery I can t be sure because I skipp
These books are always worth reading, but the last couple have been a bit messy The mystery is wrapped up quickly and not always clearly, as if it s less important than the series characters Of course, in many ways, that s true in mystery series, but still.This one also has way too many book excerpts that don t advance the plot and are rather ripe and tedious I hope Melrose doesn t continue in this vein.All of that said, the c
