Murder in Lincolnshire brings Richard Jury to the damp and wasted fen country. This time, an old flame is implicated, and Jury is forced to doubt how well he really knew her. His pub-trotting chum, Melrose Plant, eternally escaping his snobbish, litigious and voracious aunt, agrees to help by posing as an antiques expert. Curry's remarkable abilities as a character actor are here employed to great effect. Never has Aunt Agatha seemed so venal. The pubs, with their assorted inhabitants, glow in his portrayals. Grimes winds plots together in ways that might, in lesser hands, become confusing, but Curry and a deft abridgment do much to help sort things out.
