The Old Fox Deceiv'd | [Martha Grimes]

The Old Fox Deceiv'd

It is a chill and foggy 12th Night, wild with North Sea wind, when a bizarre murder disturbs the outward peace of Rackmoor, a tiny Yorkshire fishing village with a past that proves a tangled maze of unrequited loves, unrevenged wrongs, and even undiscovered murders. Inspector Jury finds no easy answers in his investigation - not even the identity of the victim, a beautiful young woman. Was she Gemma Temple, an impostor? Or was she really Dillys March, Colonel Titus Crael’s long-lost ward, returning after eight years to the Colonel’s country seat and to a share of his fortune? And who was her murderer?

    "Waited so long"

    For Martha Grimes Jury series on Audible, I love this series and it only gets better. However, the narrator is all wrong, he misses the wit and nuance. The humor is dry and smart, the narrator is not.

    Good mysteries, but I'm not sure I'll keep buying if they are all narrated by West.

    "So glad these are now audiobooks"

    I have loved this series and characters for a long time and was thrilled to see them finally made into audiobooks. The narrator is fantastic and really captures the range of quirky characters. I have a feeling that all my credits will go toward getting them all.

    "Great 2nd done my Martha Grimes & Steve West"

    This was another great mystery done by Martha Grimes. I enjoyed the first book more because there were so many funny, interesting, and oddball characters, however the ones which did carryover were a joy to see back. I love Martha Grimes theme of placing murders in towns with unique pubs, and I especially love Jury traveling from town to town to solve them. It not only gives each story a new fresh setting so you're never stuck in one place, but also keeps it comforting and familiar by having some of the same great characters in book after book.

    As far as narration goes, seriously Steve West is unreal. I listen to ALL books on audio, and I have never come across a narrator who has as many voices as he does. He must have a bottomless bag spilling over with them because each and every character has his/her own unique tone. The fact that Richard Jury will be going from town to town solving murders in a series of almost 2 dozen novels means we will be introduced to dozens and dozens of characters. Steve West is by far in the top of his class and the perfect narrator to perform this series. I love him so much I've actually added some books to my wish list just because he's the narrator. Im completely hooked to everything and everyone surrounding this series. As far as Im concerned, each book is worth several golden credits.
