THE DIRTY DUCK, by Martha Grimes
Beset by scathing comments from his supervisor, Racer, Jury must sift through the centuries to a Shakespeare contemporary to find the right path. For the intelligent reader who loves sly plots and equally sly humor, this fabulous series can't be beat. And let's not forget the love stories that skip around the edges. Too perfect! Do yourself a big favor and read all these legendary tales; best read in order, but they will stand alone. A 5.
