This was the latest of Martha Grimes' detective novels about Superintendent Richard Jury of New Scotland Yard, all titled after pubs that occur in the story. You pretty much know what you're going to get and I wasn't disappointrd. I enjoy the recurring characters and their thoughtful musings on the situations the book places them in and on life in general. (I only wish my memory was better so that I could understand all the references to events in prior novels! You don't really need to know, it would just be nice to "get them.") This one involved three apparently unconnected women all murdered in similar circumstances. As usual in Martha Grimes' novels, the crimes are an interesting puzzle, but mostly we get to enjoy the interactions between a variety of interesting characters as Jury attempts to find what connects them.
