One of the best books I've ever read (and I read a lot),
By A Customer
This review is from: The Man with a Load of Mischief (Paperback)
Having never before read one of Martha Grimes' books, I wanted to start with the first one of the "Richard Jury-mysteries". "The Man With A Load Of Mischief" is superbly written and has some of the most memorable characters I've ever encountered in any book. They are well desribed, yet there is enough space for your own imagination. The book is very funny and has some of most hilarious dialogues being ever written. In my opinion one won't be able to stop reading. Whether it is for the mystery or the characters, this decision is not to be made by me. Final words: If you like good crime/mysteries, well written dialogue and an unbelievable ensamble of characters - then buy this book and all of the others. You certainly won't regret it!
