Martha Grimes's novels are a hybrid of mystery forms, all of them hugely entertaining. The Old Success is a perfect example. * New York Times Book Review *
the solution to these apparently separate mysteries proves much simpler than might be imagined - and who better to pave the way to that elusive truth than Ms. Grimes and Richard Jury, her brilliant creation? * Wall Street Journal *
witty dialogue keeps the action moving to the satisfying conclusion. Series fans and newcomers alike will have fun. * Publishers Weekly *
Read any one [of her novels] and you'll want to read them all. * Chicago Tribune on THE KNOWLEDGE *
Delightful, surprising, even magical. They begin as police procedurals - someone is murdered, Jury investigates - but Grimes's love of the offbeat, the whimsical and the absurd makes them utterly unlike anyone else's detective novels . . . Although Grimes is American she has a wicked eye for English eccentricity * Washington Post on THE KNOWLEDGE *
Delicious . . . Jury and his posse are terrific companions . . . Delightful. * Seattle Times on VERTIGO 42 *
Intricate and entertaining . . . A delicious puzzle. * Boston Globe on THE HORSE YOU CAME IN ON *
Wondrously eccentric characters . . . The details are divine. * New York Times Book Review on THE STARGAZEY *
Swift and satisfying . . . grafts the old-fashioned 'Golden Age' amateur-detective story to the contemporary police procedural . . . real charm. * Wall Street Journal on THE LAMORNA WINK *
The literary equivalent of a box of Godiva truffles . . . Wonderful. * Los Angeles Times on THE STARGAZEY *
