Jury wants to get eyes and ears into Tynedale Lodge, and looks to his friend, Melrose Plant, to play the role. Reluctantly, Plant plays it, accompanied on his rounds of the Lodge gardens by nine-year-old Gemma Trim, orphan and ward of Oliver Tynedale; and Benny Keagan, a resourceful 12-year-old orphaned delivery boy.
And Richard Jury may not make it out alive.
A stolen book, stolen lives, or is any of this what it seems? Identity, memory, provenance - these are all called into question in The Blue Last.

Although the end was pretty much revealed from the beginning, I like this story very much. Grimes has a sense of melancholy that I find so enchanting.
I often find myself reading an Editor's summary and thinking, okay this could be good, but what the summary usually fails to inform the reader of is tone.
Grimes has a light hand with humor, a little heavy with symbolism, and just right with melancholy.

Awful lot of bad language.
I really wish authors and seemingly educated people could use adjectives that are not vulgar. Why blame God,? And why use the F word? It seems that the language is getting progressively worse in each of this author"s books. It's a shame, as she is talented and those vulgarisms are unnecessary and certainly not wanted.
