I have mowed through the first eleven and well into the 12th now, First, the driving force is Steve West's narration. I give five stars for every performance. The scene descriptions and the subtlety of observation is first rate. I also greatly enjoy when the reader can listen into Jury or Plant's internal voice.
I'm not sure if I'm missing something by listening and not reading, but I never have much of an idea what's going on with the mystery itself. Am I following Jury now or Plant? Why is he there? How do Plant and Jury communicate with each other? A plan is afoot, but I don't feel that the reader is let in on it. Each story, I'm convinced that I'll keep track of the mystery, but within 45 minutes I just rely on Mr. West to simply entertain me,.
One feature I like is that the mystery winds up and then there's a lengthy epilogue that leads you toward the next book in the series.
It's nice to read stories not loaded with angst. I never can get enough of the scenes when Cyril agitates Racer.
I hope I have motivated you to start the series.

Would you ever listen to anything by Martha Grimes again?
I have and will continue to listen to/read Martha Grimes' books!
Any additional comments?
I do have problems following some of Ms. Grimes' plots and characters. For me, sometimes many is too much. But I DO enjoy the majority of her Richard Jury stories, although there are moments when I feel as though I come into some characters' lives in the middle of some scenario that I missed.
