The Winds of Change by Martha Grimes is a novel that was passed onto me. The story sounded interesting – I do enjoy reading murder stories (I am sure you guessed! 🙂 ). This tale describes an investigation by Richard Jury (the name sounds vaguely familiar which means I may have read another of Martha Grimes’ tales of this ilk). The story shows a connection of the dead body of a young girl in London to the cold case of a missing girl in Launceston. The clues of the investigation remain elusive – clues which Richard Jury is able to finally piece together.
I found reading this story slow-going. The back and forth between characters and places is not clearly defined and, in the beginning, was a little confusing. Once I figured out who was who, I was able to make the connections that the authors was describing. I did not find the story enthralling, however, and it took me a while to complete this tale.
Have you read any of Martha Grimes’ tales?
