Book Description
 

CASE HAS ALTERED, THE by Martha Grimes - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Martha Grimes.

The Lincolnshire fens are the perfect setting for a mystifying double-murder in Martha Grimes's new Richard Jury case, a setting hardly likely to take Sergeant Wiggins's mind off his sinuses, off his pills, tinctures, and bromides. Jury finds it is a landscape that resists revealing its secrets when the body of a woman is found on the Wash and, two weeks later, the body of another woman is found floating in a canal in Windy Fen. Both women are connected with the Fengate estate: one, a kitchen maid there, and the other, the louche ex-wife of the owner, Max Owen, a man with a passion for antiques.
Since the case officially belongs to the Lincolnshire police, Jury needs someone inside Fengate, someone who can impersonate an antiques expert. Someone like Melrose Plant, detective manque and yet another member of Martha Grimes's cast of deliciously eccentric characters. Jury's interest in this case is personal, for the principal suspect is Jenny Kennington, a woman who has stood at the periphery of Jury's life for years and whom he now wants in it.
