9780786118397: Body on the Beach

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:

Finding dead bodies definitely does not happen in Feathering, and solving mysteries is decidedly not among Carole Siddon's sensible activities. Events, alas, take over, and the story reveals the darker sides of an English seaside town. Pungent wit flows razor-sharp out of Howard; each word is uttered with an exactitude that perfectly mirrors the droll social commentary that sets Brett's book apart from the rest of its genre. Line after line, Howard evokes characters and milieu. Great fun! S.B.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
