I have read and adored every Martha Grimes "Jury" mystery up until "The Old Wine Shades. I thought that odd book was a fluke. Nope, "Dust" is even more infuriating.

Thank you fellow OPLers for the suggestion that Grimes is no longer writing these. Never thought of that. I find it somehow comforting.

Not a good read, please don't waste your time! Couldn't make it to the end.

What the...? I love Richard Jury, but I don't love him in this book. I actually researched online because I didn't understand the ending. To my relief, it's a common problem; other people shared the feeling that their copy was missing pages or something. The Internet community disagrees about whodunnit and but reaches a consensus to declare the whole plot frustrating and not enjoyable. My favourite theory is that Grimes didn't write this book at all (a computer, maybe?). Anyways, you've been warned.
