Yet another of her thoroughly delightful "pub" British mysteries.
First in this wonderful series about a group of eccentric English folks who meet in in pubs and solve murder mysteries and just gossip. Richard Jury, the main character is a handsome London detective and is more serious while other characters are more whimsical. A fun, well-written series.
Two pubs in Long Piddleton are the sights of two murders. Scotland Yard's Richard Jury gets some help from Long Piddleton's own Melrose Plant to root out evil in the heart of the village. First in the series.
This seems to be the first of her Richard Jury mysteries. It is full of English wit. A truly enjoyable read.
If you like English mystery but find Dame Christie a litte too dry then you need to read Martha Grimes. She does English mystery like no other. These are not 'cozy' mysteries particularly as she gets further along. Why these haven't been turned into a BBC series, I'll never know. This is Jury in his early days and is a little bit lighter. He meets most of the standard characters that will appear consistently throughout the books. Melrose Plant, his standard sidekick is wonderful. Be prepared, you are going to want to read all of them. They get better as you go along!
