In this, the 18th outing in Martha Grimes's
popular series featuring Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury and his aristocrat pal Melrose Plant, Jury, recuperating from a near-fatal shooting (The Blue Last) hears about the two-year-old abduction of his doctor's talented young daughter, Nell Ryder, who disappeared from her grandfather's stud farm, along with a champion thoroughbred horse. Pursuing the stalled investigation when he's released from the hospital, Jury stumbles on a complicated scheme involving murder, insurance fraud, and a scheme to replicate a popular menopause drug derived from the urine of pregnant mares. As readers of this popular series know, while there's a mystery at the heart of every Jury novel, the real payoff is in Grimes's lucent prose, wit, and complex characterizations. Fans of British mystery writer Hardcover edition.



Reader Reviews
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: Did Martha write this?, September 18, 2003 Reviewer: A reader from Pittsburgh, PA United States I have read every book in the Richard Jury series, having come upon it by first buying the Blue Last. I found myself straying from reading this one on a number of occassions, unusual in that I typically read Martha's books in two days. Did Ms. Grimes actually write this book, or did she use a ghost writer? In either case, I am very disappointed.
