In the new mystery in the bestselling Richard Jury series, Martha Grimes brings London´s finest on a double-homicide case that involves Kenyan art, rare gems, astrophysics and a long-fermented act of revenge. ´Read any one [of her novels] and you´ll want to read them all.´ - Chicago Tribune Robbie Parsons is one of London´s finest, a black cab driver who knows every street, every theatre, every landmark in the city by heart. In his backseat is a man with a gun in his hand - a man who shot Robbie´s previous pair of customers point-blank in front of the Artemis Club, a rarefied art gallery-cum-casino, then jumped in and ordered Parsons to drive. As the killer eventually escapes to Nairobi with ten-year-old Patty Haigh - one of a crew of stray kids who serve as the cabbies´ eyes and ears at Heathrow and Waterloo - in pursuit, superintendent Richard Jury comes across the double-homicide in the Saturday paper. Two days previously, Jury had met and instantly connected with one of the victims, a professor of astrophysics at Columbia and an expert gambler. Jury considers the murder a personal affront and is soon contending with a case that takes unexpected turns into Tanzanian gem mines, a closed casino in Reno, and a pub that only London´s black cabbies, those who have ´the knowledge,´ can find.
