Reviews

Advance praise for The Knowledge "Martha Grimes delivers an outstanding police procedural...Readers will find it hard to put the book down; all will be drawn in from the first sentence. This may be Martha Grimes' finest Richard Jury mystery to date." --Bookreporter"Jury's investigation centers on gem smuggling, tax dodging, and greed. The real mystery is how to find a cab drivers' pub, the Knowledge, so secret that even Scotland Yard can't force its patrons to reveal its location . . . Readers will appreciate the elements that have made this a long-running bestselling series, notably a complicated case and distinctive characters."--Publishers Weekly "Grimes' twenty-fourth mystery starring Richard Jury gets off to a breakneck start . . . Jury's devoted readership will find much to enjoy."--Booklist Praise for Martha Grimes and the Richard Jury mystery series: "Delightful, surprising, even magical. They begin as police procedurals--someone is murdered, Jury investigates--but Grimes's love of the offbeat, the whimsical and the absurd makes them utterly unlike anyone else's detective novels . . . Although Grimes is American she has a wicked eye for English eccentricity . . . Original, civilized and witty novels that . . . truly are novel and, once come upon, they can become necessary."--Washington Post, on Dust "Delicious . . . A prime example of Grimes' skill at balancing the serious with the lighthearted . . . Jury and his posse are terrific companions . . . Delightful."--Seattle Times, on Vertigo 42 "Intricate and entertaining . . . A delicious puzzle."--Boston Globe, on The Horse You Came In On "Wondrously eccentric characters . . . The details are divine."--New York Times Book Review, on The Stargazey "Swift and satisfying . . . grafts the old-fashioned 'Golden Age' amateur-detective story to the contemporary police procedural . . . real charm."--Wall Street Journal, on The Lamorna Wink "The literary equivalent of a box of Godiva truffles . . . Wonderful."--Los Angeles Times, on The Stargazey "Witty, atmospheric mysteries . . . Simply heaven."--Denver Post, on The Stargazey "Read any one [of her novels] and you'll want to read them all."--Chicago Tribune "Grimes is not the next Dorothy Sayers, not the next Agatha Christie. She is better than both."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Grimes is superlative at describing the physical world . . . And, when Grimes takes us into interiors, whether it's a posh country home or a down-at-the-heels flat, she is like Dickens in linking human character to habitat . . . A stellar series."--Kirkus Reviews, on Vertigo 42
