5.0 out of 5 stars A mystery for poets..., September 12, 2009
This review is from: The Old Contemptibles (Richard Jury) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the 11th book in the Richard Jury Series (although you could also say it's the 11th book in the Melrose Plant series, since Melrose, ex-earl, is Jury's partner in solving the crimes. This one takes place up in Lake District, where all the great British poets once lived. There is a family, the Holdsworth family, that seems to be plagued with too many accidents, too many suicides. Again, like in Jury mysteries of the past, Grimes gives us an extraordinary child. In fact, there are two such children, Alex and Millie, around whom the mystery circles. My favorite characters in this book is not the children but the two old coots--Adam Holdsworth and Lady Cray--living in Castle Howe retirement home. So, if you are in the mood for a good mystery, grab a cup of tea, a volume of Wordsworth, and this Jury mystery and have a great evening!
