Not what I expected,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Case has Altered (A Richard Jury novel) (Paperback)
I read this book because I had just been to Spalding, near where it takes place, and the problem might be that I have never read a "Jury" before, but I felt like I was coming in partway through a play. Too many references to past cases with no explanation, no physical description of Jury, and very little characterization of him - being used to Christie, March et al. it seemed a bit thin, character-wise. Also plot and dialogue seemed to jump around a bit too much - it was a fun mystery but left me feeling unsatisfied.
