The Knowledge; Martha Grimes

The Knowledge: A Richard Jury MysteryThe Knowledge by Martha Grimes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After some down (or lesser) books, this is a worthy entry in the Jury series. Solid mystery, less of the quirky characters that inhabit Long Pidd (no Aunt Agatha!!) and a nice homage to the Holmes Baker Street Irregulars, plus, I think, a touch of Lord Peter (circa Murder Must Advertise). Is it all believable? Of course not - air traffic would never let Patty travel the way she does. Still, it was nice to see that the series has returned to form!
