The Man with the Load of Mischief

If you love British mysteries, you'll love this series. In Martha Grimes's The Man with the Load of Mischief, the first book in the Richard Jury series, it was when two murders struck two British inns. That's when it was up to New Scotland Yard's Inspector Richard Jury to find out who was the culprit. And when he interviewed the people in Long Piddleton, he met an interesting array of cast of characters. When he discovered the possible connection to those murders, two new ones took place  near him. And the murderer might be a step ahead of him, when he dug into the past crimes of what happened before. As he connected the dots, he knew what happened and why, before he was next on the list to be killed. An enjoyable read.

This was a fantastic introduction to the Richard Jury series. I loved his background and how he was introduced to the readers. I did care about him and the two inn owners who had this tragedy happened to them. I loved the England location of the two inns in Long Piddleton. It made you feel like you there. This would make you hold on tight for a good ride from a great mystery, excellent drama, and good action and thorough suspense.

Ready for a great mystery! Give this one a try this weekend!
