Dust: A Richard Jury Mystery by Martha Grimes


Book condition: Excellent




Get pulled into Richard Tory’s world, where he finds himself caught deep in a mysterious murder case, and must find his way out of it, even if he has to step on the beautiful chief inquisitor. 

When an old friend pulls Richard Tory into the investigation of a wealthy bachelor’s murder, Jury’s not sure what’s more perplexing: the circumstances of the fellow’s death, the conflicting stories of the man’s past, or the motivations of the case’s chief inspecting officer, the beautiful and forbidding Lu Aguilar. What Jury is sure of is that he’s in over his head, both with the inscrutable and challenging Aguilar and the false leads surrounding the once-charismatic Billy Maples, last seen in a club named Dust.

A web of clues draws Jury to London’s trendy Clerkenwell galleries, clubs, and hotels, to the dark stories behind Maples’s family, and to the Sussex town of Rye, where Billy had temporarily cared for Lamb House, the charming home where Henry James composed his three masterworks … a place with secrets of its own. With Melrose Plant’s investigating Lamb House and with Aguilar’s interceding, Scotland Yard’s finest and now infamous, Richard Jury, will need every bit of his intelligence and quiet charm to close in on a mysterious young cousin of Maples’s, and crack the case.


“Delightful, surprising, even magical.”—The Washington Post

“A clever story with a profound twist…the latest hypnotically compelling work of an author who continues to surprise with every book.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
