The world’s hardest test is taken by the world’s greatest cab drivers
The Knowledge is the latest Martha Grimes novel and the 24th book in the bestselling Richard Jury mystery series.
In THE KNOWLEDGE, London’s cabbies and cops come together on a case that involves Kenyan art, rare gems, astrophysics, and a long-fermented act of revenge. Detective Superintendent Richard Jury nearly meets his match in a Baker Street Irregulars-like gang of kids and a homicide case that reaches into east Africa.
London cab driver Robbie Parsons knows every street, every theater, every landmark in the city by heart. In the backseat of his classic black taxi is a man with a gun in his hand—a man who just a few minutes ago brazenly committed a crime in front of the Artemis Club, a rarefied art gallery-cum-casino, then jumped in and ordered Parsons to drive.
A once-fashionable now fading resort hotel. A spinster aunt living in the attic. Dirt roads that lead to dead ends. A house full of secrets and old, dusty furnishings, uninhabited for almost half a century. A twelve-year-old girl with a passion for double-chocolate ice-cream sodas, and decaying lake-fronts, and an obsession with the death by drowning of another young girl, forty years before.
In this stunning sequel to Grimes’s beloved Biting the Moon, young Andi Oliver is an amnesiac and drifter who awoke in a Santa Fe bed and breakfast with a man’s belongings tossed about the room.
