9780330445245: The Body on the Beach (Fethering Mysteries)

Recently retired, Carole Seddon resides in the seaside hamlet of Fethering, in the cottage she purchased with her ex-husband. There she maintains a quiet and sensible life with the companionship of Gulliver, her Labrador retriever. But everything changes when she and Gulliver find a corpse on the beach while taking their daily constitutional. What's more, there are two wounds on its neck. The body mysteriously disappears and the police dismiss Carole as a befuddled middle-aged woman. She almost starts to believe it herself--until a stranger threatens her to keep quiet or else. Unable to contain her anxiety, Carole confides in her eccentric neighbor, Jude, who suggests that if the police cannot be bothered to catch a killer, maybe they should do it themselves.

About the Author:

Simon Brett worked as a producer with BBC radio before turning to writing full time. A former president of Britain's Crime Writers Association, he is the creator of the Mrs. Pargeter mysteries and the Charles Paris series as well as the Fethering mysteries. He lives in southern England with his family.

From AudioFile:

The first choice for an audiobook reader would always be the author himself, if all authors could read. An accomplished actor, Simon Brett does it masterfully, taking particular pleasure in his perfect command of his characters' various accents, moods, and emotional states. Since (unlike some performers) Brett has read the book and perfectly understands the meaning and emphasis needed for every sentence, his rendition makes this well-written entertainment doubly entertaining. The plotting is clever, the set pieces are often delightful, and if the ending is over the top, never mind. It never claimed to be WAR AND PEACE.
