    A well done and somewhat surprising thriller. Jury started out a rather wretched character, visiting his only family, a cousin, for Christmas in the north, and meeting another woeful soul in a cemetery. And while they hit it off (apparently misery loves company) she ends up dead when he goes to pick her up for Christmas dinner. Surprisingly, once he stops moping around and feeling sorry for himself, he actually seems to be in a fairly good mood. Once Melrose, Vivian and Agatha show up the pacing seems to pick up. I liked the story, but some of the characters seemed so underdeveloped they could have been completely left out. While some of the plot was quite transparent I was surprised at who the responsible was.

    There were a couple of quibbles I had though. One of the police officers wanted to run a ballistics test on a .410 shotgun. Not sure what the point of that would be, as it isn't rifled so won't have any striations on the projectile. Another small quibble is that dawn was around 7 AM, which seems a little early for late December.

    The hardcover was formatted well with no obvious spelling/grammatical errors.

    Both Captivating and Confusing

    Richard Jury fans will enjoy this novel as much as any. The characters, scene description, and plot all make for interesting reading, but the NUMBER of characters caused me a ittle confusion. Reading only a few chapters at a time, I often found that when I piced up the book again, I had to flip back through the pages to figure out who someone was. Of course, being a mystery/crime novel, it just wouldn't do to have only a detective, a victim, and a suspect, but perhaps some of the characters (possible suspects) could have been more well-defined. Still, as always, it was worth sifting through in order to find out who dunit!

    Another Great Martha Grime's Read!

    This was an absolutely delighted murder mystery! The characters are so realistic that you would swear you know them personally! This is a nicely written, light read with plenty of laughs thrown in!

    Highly Recommended

    This is a favorite Richard Jury book by Martha Grimes. I really enjoy all of them but some more than others. This has a very interesting twist that ties into one of the main characters.

    interesting

    Good characters I remember from other Grimes books...fun to 'visit' with them again. True Martha Grimes! Story always feels a bit dark and drags at times but an interesting 'who dun'it?

    A Super old story

    A super old story still appropriate twenty years later. Martha Grimes writes as excellent story and love the characters she portrays and her use of British pubs.

    He crouched, and quickly pounced on her, using his size as an advantage as he grappled her to the ground.

    An unusual holiday mystery especially grimes who is usually too grimm. While not the conventional happy ending

    It certainly is for grimes who still leaves her hero with sad memories of what could have been. This is not the sorta inn one expects to find at christmas unless one is desperate for shelter and they are! classic manor house and earls plus the reverse of pub and pool and a babe of questional gender

    This is one of the tightest plotted mysteries. almost restrained in that the farce is kept to humor. The children are not in danger

    and the final ending is happy. Secrets are kept. a classic manor house mystery. Unusually well balanced for grimes you could count this as a holiday murder mystery a keeper
