Publisher's Summary

The Dirty Duck is a pub in Shakespeare's beloved Stratford, and in this pub Miss Gwendolyn Bracegirdle of Sarasota, Florida, fresh from a performance of As You Like It, takes her last drink. A few minutes later she is slashed ear to ear, the only clue: two lines from an unknown poem printed across a theater program. The razor-happy murderer, it seems is stalking a group of rich American tourists. And Scotland Yard Superintendent Richard Jury, just passing through Stratford for a glimpse of the intriguing Lady Kennington, instead takes a crash course in the bloodier side of Elizabethan verse.

Love the novels, but the narrator!!!!

He is hit and miss, if West would just stop trying to sound like a woman, uhg!

This isn't the best story in the series, but i still enjoyed the book. Having read the entire series the characters are my old friends. Jury is the original "Superintendent", melancholic, nostalgic, romantic...

The publisher's summary is accurate if a little vague.

Miss the old narrators

I love that you are doing Martha Grimes early books - love them all. But I do miss the narrating skills of Donada Peters and John Lee.
