( 14 )

Overview

    Not One of the Best

    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.

    One of her WORST

    Sadly, I could barely get through this one. I was terribly disappointed. It seems like it was written by someone else altogether.

    Good, but not the best one! ~:o)

    This book is one of the best of the Jury series.Distinct characters with lovely little eccentricities, great setting, and good resolution; however, my favarite is the Lamorna Wink - I too, wish Ms. Grimes would give greater attention to his Grace, Melrose Lord Plant...his own series!?!

    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.

    Probably the most dated of the Jury novels. It seemed weird people marveling at someone lugging around a portable computer, and not a small one at that. The main story was excellent. It's just the intervening 30 years of technological advancement made the whole computer thing seem quaint. The culprit seemed more obvious in this story than some of the other novels.

    Once again Jury and Melrose were excellent. During most of the book they were fairly upbeat. But by the end Jury seemed more like the morose and melancholy figure I remembered reading 20 years ago, pining away over Jenny Kennington and to a lesser extent Vivian Rivington. I quite enjoyed the book, even if I learned more about Shakespeare and Marlowe than I really cared to.

    The hardcover was formatted well with no obvious spelling/grammar errors and the typeface was quite easy to read.
