Fans of Brett and his tart and savvy Fethering heroines of a certain age, Carolyn and Jude, will savor this well plotted mystery. As an added bonus, vetern actor Brett reads his own tale with high style. The voices come alive and vividly capture the personalities of a wildly diverse cast.

Christmas shopping reveals the contrast between the two main characters, Carole, the straight laced one, and Jude, the free spirit. The shop where they bought some gifts is burned down that night, setting the stage for a complicated murder mystery. As usual there is a large cast of suspects and a surprise culprit. All rather far-fetched but that's what makes it fun.
Brett brings it all together rather quickly at the end, but provides a detailed epilogue to let the reader know what happens after the story is over. I like this feature because the solution to the mystery is abrupt and will impact all the characters. It's nice to learn how their lives evolve after the perpetrator is identified.
I like that the Isis editions of the Fethering audiobooks have a chapter point after each short chapter as sometime I fall asleep listening and need to go back to where I was when that happened.
Simon Brett does a splendid job of narrating his own stories.
