Publisher's Summary

Jack's a retired ex-cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries.

This compilation contains episodes 1 - 3: MURDER ON THAMES, MYSTERY AT THE MANOR and MURDER BY MOONLIGHT.

Here Jack and Sarah investigate a suicide in the River Thames - or was it murder? They investigate an "accidental" fire with deadly consequences, and they nab the culprit behind the Rotary Club choir poisoning.

Cherringham is a series à la Charles Dickens, with a new mystery thriller released each month. Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly - but with a spot of tea - it's like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby. Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick listen for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

For fans of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple series", Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who series", Caroline Graham's "Midsomer Murders", and the American TV series "Murder She Wrote", starring Angela Lansbury.

Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid 90's, creating content and working on projects for the BBC, Disney Channel, Sony, ABC, Eidos, and Nintendo to name but a few. Their transatlantic collaboration has underpinned scores of TV drama scripts, computer games, radio shows, and - most recently - the successful crime fiction series Cherringham.

The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programmes including the roles of "DCI John Barnaby" in "Midsomer Murders" and "Jim Riley" in "The Life of Riley".

Great Find

Enjoyed this series of three short mysteries. I especially liked the second in the series. Jack, a retired NYPD detective from New York, teams with Sarah, a young woman recently returned to Cherringham, to solve questionable deaths. Jack and Sarah are likable characters without any romantic tension, at least in these stories. Sarah's young children and her parents are featured characters. I will definitely continue with the series, even though short stories are not necessarily my favorites.

Neil Dundgeon is an excellent reader, though I found Jack's American accent a bit flat.

I enjoyed the stories so much. It is so hard to find clean, funny and entertaining books. I love Neil Dudgeon's performance. He does not overdo the voices. I cannot handle a man trying to sound too much like a woman and visa versa. He leaves that to our imagination, which is so much better.

Really enjoyable easy listening

This is my first foray into British cozy mysteries. This series isn't Margery Allingham or Ngaio Marsh, but it is well written, it is not too implausible, and there are no howling errors of British life or language use which can be so annoying. It is a pleasant listen, enough story to be gripping but not requiring too much emotional commitment. You do actually feel engaged in the story. The performance is excellent.

Loved these

Crime is the genre I enjoy the most from Agatha Christie and PD James to Damian Boyd and Val McDermott, but I normally dislike short stories or novellas even if written by the great and the good however I genuinely loved these.. Very light well written and well rounded stories and characters, perfect for when your gardening or walking the dogs. Will be purchasing the rest.

Exactly what I've been looking for. A modern day English village murder mystery in the classic style of Agatha Christie.

Well written, excellent narration and great characters. The stories are enjoyable and there's a laugh or two along the way. So pleased I found this series and I'll be downloading the lot!

Cosy without irritation

Three short stories. Two engaging characters who investigate possible murders without blatant nosiness. Likeable narration.
