    A Richard Jury murder mystery

    Thank you to Grove Atlantic, Atlantic Monthly Press and NetGalley for an advance e-galley of The Knowledge by Martha Grimes in exchange for an honest review. This is the 24th murder mystery in the Richard Jury series. However, since this is a first in the series for me, I can approach it on its own individual merits. This can easily be read as a standalone. Richard Jury is a Scotland Yard sleuth and The Knowledge is the name of a London pub frequented by black cab drivers only. The book begins with the murder of a married couple outside of an elite art gallery/casino. The crime is witnessed by a cab driver who, in turn, is kidnapped. The storyline takes us from London to Africa and back again, introducing new characters as it progresses. This novel reads like a cozy mystery because the characters are not always credible and sometimes confuse the story. I did enjoy The Knowledge and would like to read more of Martha Grimes' previous novels.

    My Thoughts

    I have followed Martha Grimes from the beginning. This book is like coming home again,and as life has a way of disrupting old habits, I find I have a few stories to catch up. Not many, but enough to find comfort and pleasure. I must add that I laughed my way through Lord Ardry’s safari. For a gentleman who gave up his Tittle, he is quite able to wear it when he chooses.

    Did not want it to end

    Loved this book. Martha Grimes writes the most witty and entertaining books every time. Her eccentric characters and plot twists produce a winning combination. Hope there are many more.
