Widowed van driver Bob Naylor is prodded into joining the Chichester Writers' Circle by his teenage daughter. Bob writes limericks and jingles, and fears he will be out of his class amongst the literati. But the members of the circle come from all walks of life and practice many forms of writing, from fantasy to household hints. There seems to be nothing about any of them to incite a serial killer. However, there is an arsonist in their midst, burning his victims to death, and Bob becomes a suspect. To clear himself, he must cooperate with formidable Detective Chief Inspector Henrietta Mallin.

improbable but very entertaining
Another entertaining book by Peter Livesey. Though the solution is quite convoluted and improbable. Prebble is terrific as ever. An amusing nod to Agatha Cristie was a nice touch
Clever and very amusing.
Absolutely. I've read all of Lovesey's Peter Diamond and Hen Mallin books and loved them, but hearing them read by a talented performer is the tops.
Naomi and Zach's collaboration on the e-book, probably. Her no nonsense approach and his private thoughts are priceless.
I confess that I look out for audio books narrated by Simon Prebble. He does a great job distinguishing between the characters with his vast arsenal of "voices". He uses accent, inflection, tempo, volume etc., to the best advantage. A wonderful performer!
Oh my, yes. I laughed a lot. Mr.Lovesey is hip to the vernacular. The characters and dialog are priceless!
