The Baker Street Jurors
by Michael Robertson. In this fifth in the series, national hero Rory McSweeny is accused of murdering his wife with his own cricket bat. Of course, he pleads innocent; and his fans are in an uproar worrying if McSweeny will play in an important match.
eanwhile, the Baker Street Law offices at 221B Baker Street receive two notices for jury duty – one addressed to Nigel Heath, the other to Sherlock Holmes!
he trial begins with twelve impaneled jurors and five alternate. Soon the impaneled jurors start dropping like flies and the alternates step in to fill their chairs. A bus trip with all of them ends in tragedy as one alternate doesn't make the bus back to London. The courtroom drama is a little livelier than I assume most trials would be, but Robertson enriches the testimonies as jurors ask questions during witness examinations.
he Baker Street Jurors
is the fifth of this fun and not to be missed series featuring Nigel Heath and his brother Reggie.
