Publisher's Summary

Carole Seddon has never enjoyed holidays much. Nevertheless, she has allowed herself to be persuaded by her friend Jude to accept a fortnight’s free accommodation at a luxurious Turkish villa owned by Jude’s property developer friend Barney Willingdon.
But from the outset the holiday is marred by a series of menacing incidents. As Carole and Jude launch into what they do best - investigating - it becomes clear that Barney Willingdon has made plenty of enemies, with his ruthless business deals and complicated love life. Matters come to a head when Carole’s sightseeing trip to nearby Pinara is curtailed by the discovery of a body in one of the ancient Lycian tombs. And what really did happen to Barney’s first wife, Zoe?

Another fun entry into the Carol/Jude saga

I have been enjoying the "Fethering" series available here on Audible. I don't know why this book was not listed under the "Fethering" series - perhaps an oversight, or perhaps because this particular story does not take place in Fethering, but in Turkey? Not sure. At any rate, Mr. Brett does his usual good to excellent job in narrating. Jude & Carol are up to their usual antics, including poking their noses in where they don't belong, and getting themselves in trouble. I did figure out early in the story who the perpetrator was going to be, but that did not take away my enjoyment of the story. For those to whom it is important, I would rate this, and ALL of the books in the series as a "PG-13". Very little vulgar language, NO "F-bombs", and no descriptions of sexual acts. There is mention of people having affairs/assignations, etc., but I did not find it objectionable. I would put this in the category of a "contemporary cozy mystery". I deducted one star because, IMO, the author made it very obvious who the murderer was. But it was still a fun listen!

Traveling Can Be Murder

This is a fun read. Carole and Jude travel to Turkey and of course discover a body. The story is well paced and well developed. I enjoyed it a great deal.

As always Simon Brett reads his entertaining story beautifully. Fun to listen to. Good escapist stuff.

Better Than His Last Book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tomb in Turkey to be better than the print version?

The million dollar question this. Normally I would have said yes but for one teeny thing. Repetition of part of chapter three. No honest, I thought I was hearing things to begin with. Still I suppose that is an improvement on Murder in the Museum where an entire chapter was missing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Tomb in Turkey?

Actually working out who dun it before either of the ladies. That must have been a first for me.

What about Simon Brett’s performance did you like?

I always enjoy his reading. Doesn't go for silly squeaky voices for the female of the species. He does have a good repertoire of both male and female voices.

Any additional comments?

I would like all of his books to be available via Audible.
