Carole Seddon and Jude are "Holmes and Watson with a dash of Laurel and
Hardy."Toronto Star

"The 'odd couple' is a staple of the classic whodunit, and Simon Brett gives it a sweet twist."
New York Times

The latest Fethering Mystery finds the pillars of the community teeteringwith a little push from
Carole and Jude.

The Hopwicke Country House Hotel once boasted a clientele of the rich and famous. But hard times
call for hard measures, so owner Suzy Longthorne throws open her doors to welcome the Pillars of
Sussex, an elitist group of local businessmen whose social gatherings revolve around drinking and
off-color commentary. Short staffed, Suzy recruits Jude as a waitress to help keep the spirits flowing.
But the next morning, Jude discovers the body of a young man, supposedly an initiate for Pillar
membership, hanging from the beam of a four-poster bed. The police are quick to rule the death a
suicide. The Pillars of Sussex deny that the victim was ever considered for membership, and Suzy
just wants to forget that it ever happened. Jude knows that both parties have something to hide, and
she's determined to uncover the truth.

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 the South of England with his family.

Geoffrey Howard is a retired British journalist who strives to add warmth and clarity to every audiobook. Says Howard, "I try to bring the listener as close as possible to the experience I'm having while reading it for the first time."

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
