Publisher's Summary

A dinner party at an English mansion with some stuffy, not-very-close friends is not exactly Jude's cup of tea. But the practically mummified torso of a woman found in the cellar is much more up Jude's alley. Once again, the two middle-aged women from Fethering, Jude and her reluctant neighbor, Carole, find themselves embroiled in another puzzling whodunit. As in their debut, the acclaimed The Body on the Beach, the ladies from Fethering once again proceed totally outside the bumbling police investigation in a somehow utterly credible way, gaining access and insight where the police can't.

A darn good listen!

This was a very enjoyable listen. Bodies were not popping in and out. Shady characters were not doing their worst. There was just the central mystery, “The Torso in the Town.” The author took this one event and masterfully wove a fantastic mystery with very believable characters that kept me guessing to the end. I usually need lots of action to keep me interested. Not so here. The well crafted mystery was the thing that kept me wanting more. This is the first book by Simon Brett that I have listened to. It will not be my last. Want a good mystery? This will not disappoint.

another winner from Simon Brett.

I really enjoy the company of Jude and Careless and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. The narrator does a good job and I find him easy to listen to.
