Over de Auteur

Martha Grimes was born on May 2, 1931 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She received a B.A. and an M.A. from the University of Maryland. The idea for Martha Grimes' first British detective novel, The Man with a Load of Mischief (1981), was inspired by the name of a British pub she noticed while leafing toon meer through a travel book. A longtime Anglophile, she has continued to use a British pub as both the title and part of the setting in each subsequent novel in the series which features Scotland Yard Detective Richard Jury, his assistant, Melrose Plant, and Plant's interfering Aunt Agatha. The Anodyne Necklace (1983) won her the Nero Wolfe Award. Her other works include The Stargazey, The Case Has Been Altered, The End of the Pier, Biting the Moon, and Dust. Her title, Vertigo 42, made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2014. (Bowker Author Biography) toon minder

My first Martha Grimes/Richard Jury, thus a bit confusing with all the already familiar if you've read the series characters. However, amusing. I laughed out loud several times, which doesn't happen with every mystery! Liked the animal by-play.

Manchmal etwas wirr und langatmig, aber nicht schlecht!

Insgesamt wirklich gut, in der Mitte hat es mich aber irgendwie verloren. 3,5 Sterne von mir.
