Martha Grimes

May 2, 1931 -

Martha Grimes is an American writer of detective fiction. Martha Grimes was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 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 lives in Bethesda, Maryland. - wikipedia
