It pains me to write this but I have to say I struggled with MUCH of this latest instalment in Martha Grimes Richard Jury Melrose Plant series I ve written before about my love of this series Indeed, if someone was to give me a week to binge read an entire series and not have to write reviews I d choose Martha Grimes or Sue Grafton Familiar, comfort reads Generally reliable reads I commented in my review of The Knowledge not embedding link as unsure that works on NG , that I have often been frustrated by the love interests introduced for Jury as he has spectacularly bad taste in women As does Melrose I guess But I usually enjoy the plots and love the characters Generally Grimes also does a great job with the children s characters as well And I love Martha Grimes books but this one seemed a little rushed There are so many characters described briefly that I felt a little confused Melrose Plant, as always is my favorite and he did not disappoint.
I ve been away from the Martha Grimes pub mysteries for quite some time now and I m sorry to say The Old Success wasn t very successful for me This is number 25 in the series and true fans will welcome having Richard Jury and Melrose Plant back but I ve been away for a while and I spent a good amount of time being confused There are so many characters sprinkled throughout the book and a large number of them are actually nothing but names mentioned because they ve evidently been added to the character list along the way I found myself confused about how many deaths were being investigated and by whom Evidently practically anybody was welcome to jump in the car, plane or boat and go investigating with Jury He was the only official policeman but that didn t ever seem t I ve enjoyed spending time with these long time literary friends Recommended Complete review to be posted closer to the publication date of 11 5 2019.
Å The Old Success (Richard Jury, #25) À 4 stars just to rejoin Jury and friends.
Martha Grimes Richard Jury novels all have the title of a pub one exception, Vertigo 42 is a wine bar and a unique and eccentric group of returning characters The mysteries focus on puzzles rather than violence, almost always have a child and an animal, humorous episodes, and witty conversations They are fun if you have some familiarity with some of the secondary characters because looking forward to the brief appearances of the Long Piddleton crowd is always fun The main characters are Richard Jury of Scotland Yard and Melrose Plant his friend and foil The books are usually considered cozy mysteries, but they are literary, character driven, and complex than most cozies.
The Old Success is not my favorite, but I wouldn t



3 and 1 2 starsHow disappointing I ve been reading the adventures of Richard Jury for many, many years Although the gang is back, this story just doesn t seem to hold together very well I enjoy spending time with Jury, Trueblood, Diana and the others but this book was either trying too hard or not hard enough It seemed like a bunch of disparate stories that were loosely tied together Are we sure Ms Grimes wrote it I thought that the murder investigation was done well, but there were many subplots that took off in different directions I found them to be distracting and wished that the story would get back to the search for the killer When it finally did come, the identity of the murderer came as a surprise I Richard Jury made his first appearance in 1981, and it seemed plausible that he was a 40 something police detective who had lost his parents in WW2 Jump ahead nearly 40 years, and he still seems to be a 40 something police detective, but somehow the series no longer seems as plausible to me It is almost as Jury, Melrose Plant, and the rest of the assorted Long Piddleton crew are trapped in a time warp they stay the same while the world around them has changed I had a difficult time getting into The Old Success and I have read at least 20 of the preceding 24 entries in the series , and couldn t muster enough interest to finish If you are a die hard Richard Jury fan as apparently I am no longer or new to the character, you will probably enjoy this Martha Grimes can tell a good story However, if you are like me and unable to reconcile the Jury of the 21st century with the character It pains me to write this but I have to say I struggled with MUCH of this latest instalment in Martha Grimes Richard Jury Melrose Plant series I ve written before about my love of this series Indeed, if someone was to give me a week to binge read an entire series and not have to write reviews I d choose Martha Grimes or Sue Grafton Familiar, comfort reads Generally reliable reads I commented in my review of The Knowledge not embedding link as unsure that works on NG , that I have often been frustrated by the love interests introduced for Jury as he has spectacularly bad taste in women As does Melrose I guess But I usually enjoy the plots and love the characters Generally Grimes also does a great job with the children s characters as well And I should mention she seems to have a thing for cats Anyhoo, most of the usua The Old Success is the most recent of author Martha Grimes Inspector Richard Jury series Jury is still on the job, this time investigating a woman s murder on a remote island Before long, there are two other untimely deaths but are they related to each other, or even to the first murder Nothing seems to tie them together, at least not at first.
Along with Richard Jury we once again have his well to do friend and amateur sleuth, Melrose Plant, and of course Plant s aunt, Aunt Agatha.
Jury is also aided in his investigations this time by a retired detective, Tom Brownell, who solved all of his cases during his career All his cases, except one, the death of his only daughter, Daisy.
There s plenty of plot twists and slow reveals along with Grimes usual wit Plant gives Aunt Agatha a fright when he introduces her to an unknown blood relative of his, someone who The Body Of A French Woman Washes Up On A Wild Inlet Off The Cornish Coast, Brian Macalvie, Divisional Commander With The Devon Cornwall Police Is Called In Who Could Have Killed This Beautiful Tourist, The Only Visible Footprints Nearby Belonging To The Two Little Girls Who Found Her While Macalvie Stands In The Scilly Islands, Inspector Richard Jury Twenty Miles Away On Land S End Is At The Old Success Pub, Sharing A Drink With The Legendary Former CID Detective Tom Download Epub Format ☆ The Old Success (Richard Jury, #25) PDF by ☆ Martha Grimes Brownell, A Man Renowned For Solving Every Case He Undertook Except OneIn The Days Following The Mysterious Slaying Of The Parisian Tourist, Two Other Murders Take Place First, A Man Is Shot On A Northhamptonshire Estate, Then A Holy Duster Turns Up Murdered At Exeter Cathedral In Devon Macalvie, Jury And Bronwell Set Out To Discover Whether These Three Killings, Though Very Different In Execution, Are Connected Written With Grimes S Signature Wit, Sly Plotting, And Gloriously Offbeat Characters, The Old Success Is Prime Fare From One Of The Most Fascinating Mystery Writers Today Houston Chronicle
