Publisher's Summary

After a long period of "resting", life is looking up for Charles Paris, who has been cast in a new production of Hamlet. But rehearsals are fraught. Ophelia is played by Katrina Selsey, who won the role through a television talent show. Hamlet himself is also played by a reality TV contestant, Jared Root. But when the company reaches the first staging post of their tour, matters get more serious, with one member of the company seriously injured in what appears to be an accident, and another dead. Once again, Charles Paris is forced to don the mantle of amateur detective to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Charles Paris is back but he hasn't changed

What did you love best about A Decent Interval?

Charles Paris - as always, flawed but endearing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Decent Interval?

I always enjoy his quotes of reviews of past performances.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Definitely. I have read and enjoyed many of these books in print, but they are well suited to oral presentation and Michael Page does an excellent job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have enjoyed listening to it all at once but my schedule did not allow it. It was good in small segments as the plot was not overly complicated.

Any additional comments?

I have read most of Simon Brett's books over the years - he is a consistently good writer.

The return of

Charles Paris is a welcome event. I give it four stars but regard it as top of the line for what it is--a genre mystery. Great main character, great setting anud Brett's love show business in all of its manifestations as he gently mocks it shines through as always.
