11/4/1986 Martha Grimes starts jogging
November 4, 1986. Martha Grimes' eighth novel about Richard Jury was published on this date. I Am The Running Footman, named
after an actual pub (as are all the books in the series), involves "the
porphyria murders," two crimes that took place a year and many miles
apart, but might be related.
The Washington Post called it “Literate, witty, and stylishly crafted.”
