The blind man smelled something new in Cider Alley, a new scent mixed with the old ones of urine and sweat, beer and whisky, coming from some doorway (he imagined) where a little cluster of men liked to gather.

The blind man smelled something new in Cider Alley, a new scent mixed with the old ones of urine and sweat, beer and whisky, coming from some doorway (he imagined) where a little cluster of men liked to gather. Often when he cut through this narrow street there would be tentative greetings-a tap on his shoulder, a hand on his arm, a shouted hello.

Martha Grimes is one of the few authors left carrying on the British detective mystery tradition, and doing it well.

A change of scenery from England to Baltimore and a change of pace from curious and quick to plodding and confusing. I grew up in Baltimore and it was never this boring.

A change of scenery from England to Baltimore and a change of pace from curious and quick to plodding and confusing. Dec 13, 2012 Helen rated it really liked it. Shelves: modern-mystery, fiction. I've always had a feeling that Martha Grimes should be classified on the edge of fantasy because there are weird under currents of mental strangeness about the characters and their actions

Richard Jury is supposed to be on holiday when the telephone call comes. And in any case, what has sudden death on American soil to do with an English police superintendent? But when the victim turns out to be British by birth, and to have a distant connection with Jury's old acquaintance Lady Cray, he reluctantly pries himself loose from his pint at the Jack and Hammer. Enlisting the aid of aristocratic Melrose Plant, and accompanied by Sergeant Wiggins (fortified against the unknown and menacing germs of intercontinental travel), Jury crosses the Atlantic.

I love cozy English mysteries. Mysteries being the operative word. In this truly terrible book I would guess that only about 10% of the book was related to the "mystery". Rambling chapters, fictitious manuscripts that were torture to try to read, dragged out descriptions of Baltimore and very little Richard Jury. I felt no connection to any of the victims, for the most part the people who did care about them were already dead. Another ambiguous ending. Why is this author so highly rated? I still have one more Jury book waiting on my Kindle (I have read the first 12). I'm not looking forward to reading it. This book will boor you to tears.

I like Poe, and it's nice that he's included here. It's also interesting that they brought the characters to America. I have never, in my life stumbled upon as many sad and dejected children as this author stumbles upon in every book. One wonders about her own childhood. This is a story of two different murders, or is it? It's fun that the detective assigns others the murder he's investigating, so that he can investigate the second murder. The characters, throughout the series, and fun and well drawn, if a bit two dimensional. These are not books you have to finish in one read, too good to put down. But good, light, English murder mysteries with likable characters.

Since I like Martha Grimes and in the past read many of her books . This book, however, rambled. There was no real plot, too wordy, as if she just needed to get a book written quickly. It was unclear to me why this book that Melrose was writing took up several pages and also was not part of the story either. Then the last three pages of the book had Jury embarking on a new case (which was the only interesting part of the whole book) and the book ends. I read the trailer of the next book in the series and it doesn't sound like the teaser about this new case Jury was about to get involved in at the end of book 12 continues in book 13. I don't think I'll be paying money to find out.

It is hard to find references on Jared French's paintings. This is a very good publication with good color plates and an a pretty accurated text by Nancy Grimes.

I enjoyed this book but not as much as the prior ones. It was very complicated and the new characters were not memorable

If you've read the preceding books, this episode will make you appreciate the ongoing story lines. A case solved but the overall personal story lines are continued.

Super illustrations of inticing work. I learned of Jared French via my interest in French's contemporaries and friends, Paul Cadmus and George Platt Lynes. I enjoyed seeing vintage photographs by Jared French, his wife Margaret French, and his friend/lover Paul Cadmus (PAJAMA) at SF Art Fair. Fortunate to view his Richmond Post Office WPA mural now restored & installed at the Federal Courthouse in Richmond Virginia this year (along with the superior Paul Cadmus mural). This book serves as a solid introduction to his work. I intend on purchasing another copy for a friend.
What an amazing book this is --- I purchased it mainly for the art but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a wonderful read as well --- Highly recommend !!
