bookshelves: fiction, mystery

Jury is considering marriage to a woman named Jane Holdsworth when she is killed, leaving Jury as a prime suspect. The excellent cast of characters includes a smart young boy named Alex and the slightly deranged residents of a retirement home, who include the boy's grandfather.
