I was surprised to learn a new word before reading this It is me to a tee a completionist It explains how I shop I click into collect every kind mode Over ten years I filled in all but The Man With A Load Of Mischief 1981 Having started with the loveable Melrose Plant and Richard Jury I am keen about the next; goodness knowing I own it and expect authors to improve Series aside it is why I go in order of release By the end of this novel the construction of Martha Grimes' characters pays offThere were hilarious uips I re read to titter over anew When Melrose organizes a theatre scene to show how the pinnacle of crimes started his Aunt Agatha gripes over her short role and I could hear Melrose retorting We aren't trying for the Royal Shakespeare Company Just do your parts It is the only uip that surpassed his and his butler's explosion over Agatha's mispronounced names Martha proved an excellent plotter All information factored into her mystery The story is original three strangers in different pubs Why kill strangers The motives fit superbly filled in plausibly when an old employee is searched out There are gratifying clues to exploreWith countless series at home I can't guarantee liking I am making rounds with first novels to lift that mystery for myself I call Martha a success I ended her début feeling I could become a fan but can't overlook that it was tedious for uite a while Agatha's prattling received cumbersome airtime and chapters of description were heavy handed to the point of superfluity at first Vivian was lovely Richard's interactions with the Double children boosted his endearing personality and I for one would relish sitting down to the vicar's pub name lore

You know you are in the hands of a master when a mystery is simultaneously complex lyrically written character richand hilarious This was Grimes's first in the Jury series and she went on from strength to strength which given how much time she must have spent in the pubs for which each book is named is almost miraculous In as sense Grimes mysteries are character studies and what a cast of regular characters she creates from thoughtful and handsome Inspector Richard Jury and his hypochondriac sidekick Sergeant Wiggins to the rest of the denizens of the village of Long Piddleton the name alone is a clue and it's resident toff Melrose Plant who has relinuished his title as Lord Ardry Somehow he becomes Jury's friend partner in detection and handy stand in for Jury at key moments The full range of the uirky characters who hang out at the title pub is too long to mention and indeed they grow as the series continues from this auspicious start But I am always glad to once again make their acuaintance Suffice it to say that surprises and also chuckles appear on almost every page As a British murder mystery writer myself I own every book in the series
