About the Author
Author Martha Grimes

Martha Grimes was born in Pennsylvania. Grimes earned her BA and MA at the University of Maryland. She has taught at the University of Iowa, Frostburg State University, and Montgomery College. Grimes is best known for her series of novels featuring Richard Jury, an inspector with Scotland Yard, and his friend Melrose Plant, a British aristocrat who has given up his titles. Each of the Jury mysteries is named after a pub. Her page-turning, character-driven tales fall into the mystery subdivision of “cozies.” In 1983, Grimes received the Nero Wolfe Award for best mystery of the year for The Anodyne Necklace. She splits her time between homes in Washington, DC, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
