This seems to be the first of her Richard Jury mysteries. It is full of English wit. A truly enjoyable read.

British mysteries aren't really my thing, but here's what amazon had to say..

This is a new series for me. A patron of the library recommended Martha Grimes and her character Richard Jury. It is another historical mystery set in England. I have always been a fan of Agatha Christie and M. C. Beaton. I love mysteries set in England. I look forward to reading my way to the latest one.
