Martha Grimes, The Old Success (Atlantic Monthly Press)

I’m a fan of this series going way back (my mother read them religiously) and I’m pleased to see that the series continues to this day. The Old Success is the 25th in Grimes’ Richard Jury series; in her latest, Grimes takes us to the Cornish coast, where the body of a French tourist has washed up on shore, triggering a new investigation in long-ago crimes that may be connected to the recent murder.—MO
