Publisher's Summary

Invited to a Private View of the work of controversial artist Denzil Willoughby, the good citizens of Fethering are not quite sure what to expect. And it certainly turns out to be a lively affair, culminating in a confrontation between Willoughby and his ex-lover, followed by a heated argument with the gallery owner and a rival artist. But what no one could have anticipated was that the evening would end in sudden, violent death. While the police seem happy to accept an official verdict of suicide, Fethering residents Carole and Jude remain unconvinced. Deciding to investigate further, Carole and Jude soon discover that the answers lead only to more questions – and that at least one Fethering resident has a dark secret to hide.

Brett Never Disappoints

I have listened to and/or read every book written by Simon Brett. His plots are great, his descriptions vivid, especially when he narrates. A must read for every Mystery aficionado.

Good Story, Ending a Surprise!

It all unraveled a little too fast at the very end - a surprise perpetrator - seemed as if the other suspects were tumbling like dominoes - but Brett pulls it out with as satisfying epilogue.

I'm still enjoying the characters of Carol and Jude as they muddle along with a murder case they have taken it upon themselves to solve since the police are ready to call it suicide and close the case.

I appreciate that the books from Isis Publishing have a chapter point at the end of each chapter since I tend to fall asleep listening - that makes it easy to get back to where I left off.

Brett does a superb job of narrating his own books. Reliably good cozies - no one does it better!

More please!

Have read all the Fethering mysteries but this is my favourite so far. Made all the better by an excellent narration by Simon Brett himself! A perfect audio book experience and here's hoping Simon narrates the next one himself too.

Hugely enjoyable!

If like me, you love Brett's 'Carol and Jude' series you will enjoy this. I have never read these novels but they are a hugely enjoyable listen. Fun, easy and rather silly but you cannot help getting invoved in the Fethering lives of the sleuthing duo. This is definitely not the best in the series and I thought the plot and characterisation was weaker than usual. However it is brilliantly narrated as ever by the author and still hugely enjoyable.
