Book Description


1998 NY: Henry Holt

First edition, first printing, mint, new/unread in a flawless dustjacket.

November. In a bleak month, a bleak Richard Jury takes an aimless ride on one of London's icons--the old double-decker bus, a #14 traveling the Fulham Road. His attention is caught by a woman "with hair so gossamer-pale you could see the moon through it," wearing a fur coat, boarding his bus in front of a pub called the Stargazey.

Her behavior intrigues him, as she leaves, reboards, and leaves the bus again. Jury follows her to the gates of Fulham Palace--but only to the gates. There he stops. Later he wonders if the death in the walled garden of Fulham Palace could have been averted if he had gone in...and if this precipitated still another death in a London club named Boring's, which is Melrose Plant's crusty old men's club.

Before Jury and Plant work out the connection between these killings, they are both helped and hindered by Martha Grimes' usual band of eccentrics: Theo Wrenn Browne, trying to shut down the Long Pidd library the Cripps family trying to shut down civilization and Diane Demorney, the new horoscope columnist for the Sidbury Star, trying to shut down the heavens
