Publisher's Summary

Charles Paris is on his way up again, career-wise. No longer ‘resting’ or playing a corpse in a cupboard, he finds himself doubling almost every role in a provincial production of the play dreaded by superstitious theatrefolk: Macbeth. The three principals could hardly be more assorted: Macbeth is played by TV gameshow personality George Birkitt; Lady Macbeth comes straight from Stratford, an intense young woman with Method in her madness; and Duncan is that notorious ham, Warnock Belvedere, who feels that he’s in the great tradition of actor-managers.
With such a cast, sparks are bound to fly, and it’s not long before Charles Paris finds himself in the familiar role of private eye when death strikes in the night...

Brilliantly written and read by Simon Brett

Simon Brett’s books are a delight, and listening to Simon read any of his books doubly so. Listening to the brilliant Charles Paris and Mrs Pargeter ‘whodunnit’ stories on tape on long road trips in the 1990’s got me hooked on audiobooks.
It’s great to see Audible now have available, some of the Charles Paris stories read by Simon Brett himself. For me Charles Paris is Simon’s best creation, a mildly dissolute journeyman stage actor with a charming character, wry humour and excellent amateur sleuthing skills, that Simon brilliantly characterises in his audio books. “What Bloody man is that?” is just one of many great Charles Paris stories and a must listen to for any whodunit fan.

Satisfied.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The very beginning.

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

Yes, the auther's style is easy to listen to.
