This seemed like maybe it was written in haste to meet a publishing deadline or something. The characters, while always quirky in a Richard Jury novel, seemed overwritten. The American tourists at the center of this mystery were certainly colorful, but not really believable, and acquaintances of Jury's appeared briefly, then disappeared without having any real purpose in the story. The story involves a series of murders with quite graphic descriptions (a little disturbing at times), but admittedly, the mystery was entertaining and the ending a bit of a surprise. If you like Richard Jury novels, it's worth reading, just to keep up with the sequence/series, but if you're not yet a Jury fab, you might just want to skip this.

    Another winner

    I love the Richard Jury series and as expected, the Dirty Duck doesn't disappoint. If you're into British murder mystries you'll love this series.
