The Stargazey (Richard Jury Series #15)by Martha Grimes
After a luminous blonde leaves, reboards, then leaves the double-decker bus Richard Jury is on, he follows her to the gates of Fulham Palace...and goes no further. Days later, when he hears of the death in the palace's walled garden, Jury will wonder if he could have averted it. But is the victim the same woman Jury saw? As he and Melrose Plant follow the complex case from the Crippsian depths of London's East End to the headier heights of Mayfair's art scene, Jury will realize that in this captivating woman--dead or alive--he may have finally met his match...

I was so pulled in to this book, I literally could not stop it. I can't express how disappointed I was when I came to the end of it, I didn't want it to be over! The characters are so wonderfully and creatively alive and there, it was the equivalent of watching a movie! The plot was not 1% predictable, neither was the ending. I was extremely impressed with the way in which the story and all the characters came together in such an enjoyable way. I highly recommend this book for unstoppable great reading!!
