    top notch mystery

    I've been reading the Richard Jury novels in order & just finished "Help the Poor Struggler." Next to the first book in the series, this is my favorite so far. Well worth picking it up if you're a fan of "classic" British murder mysteries (even though it's written by an American).

    Overall I liked it. But it had a different structure than many of her other Jury novels. There is a section of 25 pages in the middle, roughly 12% of the book, that didn't have Jury or Melrose in it all. And, Melrose didn't show up until half way through the book. So far, my least favorite in the series.

    The story was good, though the conclusion seemed a little rushed. Macalvie was a great character, and I hope we'll see more of him in the future. Lady Jessica was kind of fun as well. It definitely could have used more Melrose, though. He's my favorite character, so I always think he doesn't have a big enough part.

    The paperback was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors

    Highly Recommended

    I love the Richard Jury series by Martha Grimes. I have multiple copiesof her books, hard backs, paperbacks, and ebooks. Help The Poor Struggler is one of my favorites. I love the characters in her books.

    Loved this mystery!

    This was the first mystery I read by Martha Grimes and I instantly became a fan! The plot and characters are interesting and the book is well-written! I liked it so much that I read several of her other books!

    Always a treat to read, with surprising twists! recommended

    Typical Martha Grimes read. Good detecting by Superindendant Richard Jury of the New Scotland Yard. Of course, Help the Poor Struggler is only the name of the pub where Jury and his police cronies talk the crime out. Be sure to pay attention to prologue and names of families. Good job, Martha.

    "Guys like people like you. You sound sweet. But this boy needs to straighten up and talk to you. He doesn't deserve you if he doesn't even talk to you. But.... when guys barely talk to you, it somtimes means they're hiding something. If you want to know what it is, talk to him. If you are scared to know, break up with him. It's your best shot of getting someone who truly deserves a beautiful, sweet girl like you."

    You

    Really ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Would you do this if your family could see it? If the answer is no, then you probably shouldn't do it. If the answer is yes, I pity you so much.

    Grimes books always seem written by a multi personality

    As if three to four at least rather than split! One i usually dont care for is why borrow than buy. However dont think she is ever reissued as soft cover trade. This is a shorter than usual and warning as usual the murderer comes very last with loads of strings left dangling and several big whats? Without doing a hh harriet why and who did the first murder because i cant figure that one out and no one says at the end either. OK i read every one i say i wont then go back and catch up.

    A tight plot but feel that the wrong person was made the

    Murderer that the inheritance would have been the best plot line to follow and the id of first murderer too sloppy and really no reason given for him at end . Grimes too often dumps plot at end and characters for the unknown killer who just shows up at last minute.
