Publisher's Summary

It is a chill and foggy 12th Night, wild with North Sea wind, when a bizarre murder disturbs the outward peace of Rackmoor, a tiny Yorkshire fishing village with a past that proves a tangled maze of unrequited loves, unrevenged wrongs, and even undiscovered murders.
Inspector Jury finds no easy answers in his investigation - not even the identity of the victim, a beautiful young woman. Was she Gemma Temple, an impostor? Or was she really Dillys March, Colonel Titus Crael’s long-lost ward, returning after eight years to the Colonel’s country seat and to a share of his fortune? And who was her murderer?

Waited so long

For Martha Grimes Jury series on Audible, I love this series and it only gets better. However, the narrator is all wrong, he misses the wit and nuance. The humor is dry and smart, the narrator is not.

Good mysteries, but I'm not sure I'll keep buying if they are all narrated by West.

what genre is this?

I came across this series and started with book #1 and this is my second in the series, book #2. I'm still not quite sure what genre to put this in? it's clearly a murder mystery but it's not really a thriller, not a page turner. It's more in the line of a Sherlock Holmes mystery, a thinking person's mystery. And, yet, there is also the aspect of an American author writing the story set in England and sort of making fun, a spoof almost, of the British way of life, the language, the aristocracy and the class system, which we Americans find interesting, I suppose, if not a bit strange. Still, with all this said, my goal in any book is to be entertained and that I was.
