Have enjoyed Jury books in the past, but this was a huge disappointment. Simply dreadfull, boring! Brought the book back after wasting my time reading the first third of it. I DO NOT recommend this book!

Other Jury books are a treat but not this one. Don't know what Grimes was thinking but whatever it was, it wasn't about this plot. Would not recommend this read.

I think perhaps a little imagination may just lead to good things. These books get significantly better if you give them a chance. "Jury" has depth and the writing is very sound, the mystery surprising, and over all very entertaining, especially if you have a thing for London. Give Grimes the benefit of a least three reads.

I was enjoying this until the dog started telling the tale! It was all downhill from there. My first and last Martha
