Love Melrose

Because I am a great Melrose Plant fan, this is my favorite of the Jury series. (Full disclosure - Richard Jury has begun to really bore me) The characters, the interactions and the atmosphere of the story remind me of Grimes early books in the series and remind me why I loved the series in its earlier days. Since for me Plant is by far the most interesting character in the series, this book with its limited appearance by Jury (who seems less suicidally depressed than in some of later books) is almost perfect. If only the rest of the Long Piddleton gang had been part of the story, I would have been totally in heaven.

The narrator is fine. The voices fit fine with the voices I had in my head when reading the novel.
