Simon Brett 2005 – Fethering Mysteries #6
Carole and Jude continue to fight crime without the help of the police. This time, in a story that picks up almost immediately where #5 left off, the two sleuths must (or want to) find out who wants to hurt Carole’s prospective daughter-in-law.
As cozy mysteries go, Fethering is one of the best; the detectives are flawed but earnest, and each installment is engaging – especially as read by Ralph Cosham.
This would be a five-star review, but I guessed the killer very early on, which is generally an automatic one-star reduction. Regardless, I recommend the book, and the series. It’s best to read #5, The Hanging in the Hotel, first, if possible.
