Nevertheless, the characters are so lively and full of personality, it really makes you feel you know them. They also work very well together and create the kind of chemistry which is quite rare in a book. At the end you will be sorry to leave them, but you know there will be other adventures.
It is an enjoyable read and highly recommended. If you are new to the somewhat bizarre world of Martha Grimes' Jury character, it is still possible to enjoy this book. By the end of it you will know the characters as well as we do. A few references to previous adventures might even inspire you to read the others.

killer is to ride to the foxes.
It's typically Grimes all the way, the humor dry and droll, and brought to life by the ever-so-talent Tim Curry. I just cannot imagine anyone but Curry reading Grimes. He brings all the characters to life. While my preferred medium is reading in print, I cannot resist all the Curry-Grimes tapes. They are just too perfect!
If you love British Mysteries, you cannot pass on these tapes. If you are a Curry fan, you simply need to hear him doing Aunt Agatha and Gwendolyn! This was the second in the Jury-Plant series.
A young woman is murdered while on her way to the 12th Night Costume ball and her harliquin painted face looms in many minds as a long lost heir to a local squire.
Melrose Plant jumps at the chance to escape Aunt Agatha and assist his friend.
So far one of the best of Grimes.
