Long Piddleton had always been wary of newcomers. But the quiet town was stunned when the first stranger was found dead, upended in a butt of ale in the cellar of the Men with a Load of Mischief. Then the second body appeared, swinging in place of the mechanical man above the door of the Jack and Hammer.Suddenly Long Piddleton had good reason to be wary of everyone! Its cozy pubs and inns with their polished pewter and blazing hearths had become scenes of the most bizarre crimes. Who were the victims? And who was the murderer? A stranger? A maniac? Or the disarmingly friendly man next door?

This is the first book in a great series. Inspector Richard jury and his group of irregulars make for excellent reading. I've read the entire series and highly recommend it.

Martha Grimes is my second favorite mystery author right after Christie. I love her humor and her characters are developed so well that you begin to feel like you are at home.
