The new Fethering mystery
When Carole goes for a hair trim at Connie's Clip Joint, she doesn't expect to find herself at the scene of a murder. But in the back room, strangled by the lead of a hairdryer, sits Connie's young assistant Kyra. Carole and her sleuthing friend Jude are soon enjoying some tactical snooping, and it seems that Fethering's fingers are pointing firmly at Kyra's boyfriend Nathan, who has disappeared. As our discreet lady detectives decide there are only so many haircuts they can have for the sake of neighbourhood crime-solving, they also realise that this is no cut-and-dried case...

From AudioFile:

In this eighth Fethering whodunit, Carole Seddon, retired Home Office employee, goes to Connies Clip Joint for the first time, although she has misgivings about taking on a new hairdresser. Its not long before Carole finds herself up to her hair-clippings in yet another murder. Partnering with her neighbor, Jude, whose outrageous personality is a perfect complement to hers, Carole sets about solving the murder of the Clip Joint shampoo girl, something the inept police seem unable to do. Simon Brett, one of the best author-narrators in the business, is best known for his Charles Paris series, highlighting the eccentricities in the world of TV and stage. His razor-sharp wit and mastery of innuendo make this West Sussex cozy a worthwhile listen. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
