Product Description

Review

`Simon Brett is the supreme of crime comfort-reading.'
--Daily Mail

'The master of cosy crime, Simon Brett has written a dozen Fethering mysteries of which The Shooting in the Shop is the latest to appear in paperback…With his eye for the pretensions of an inward-looking community, Brett brings a light touch to what otherwise would be a grisly tale of deception and double-dealing.' --Daily Mail

Format: Hardcover
A delight. It's always a treat to be re-united with Jude and Carole and their very own style of amateur detection mixed with copious glasses of Chardonnay. Opposites attract and whilst there's often a frisson of tension between these two - largely on Carole's part - they work so well together and in this story Carole even shows signs of becoming something of a gossip, venturing onto Fethering beach without Gulliver, so keen is she to find clues. As usual Jude has her little secret venture and Carole is caught twitching the curtain to find out about the mystery man but there's no malice. The Le Bonnier family and their associated hangers on are a weird mix of misfits so the murderer could be anyone. Ted only has a minor part this time which is a shame as he adds a bit of jollity and scandal generally. What a delightful series this is.

Format: Hardcover
I am a great fan of Simon Brett and have read most of his other books. I like the Fethering series and I have to agree with the other reviewer that they just keep getting better. The basic storyline is that a very arty shop is burnt down and not surprisingly a body is found inside. Carol and Jude go about investigating the murder and as always get their man or woman as the case may be. The characters are growing throughout the series and we get to know much more about them in this book. It always amazes me that Carol, for someone who is so shy and self reliant, manages to ask the most personal and probing of questions, to get to the root of the mystery. However, this is part of her character and it works. She is becoming more likable and at one point in the book I even felt sorry for her. The supporting cast of characters are quite excentric in this book, but it all seems to come together. This is a traditional murder mystery with no blood or gore, but is still a good read and a book you will not want to put down. I would highly recommend this book, as I would all the Fethering mysteries.

I always look forward to the annual Fethering Mystery. It's fun to see how Jude's intuition married with Carole's pragmatic approach will come up with the solution to the crime. And they don't disappoint in this their eleventh outing as amateur sleuths.

As usual, Simon Brett's dialogue sparkles and his supporting characters are interesting and real. I particularly liked the Grand Dame actress and Ricky Le Bonnier's hippy-dippy first wife. I felt that as well as portraying Fethering as a close knit community, Simon Brett also showed the loneliness of living in such a place.

Fethering is the sort of small town that Miss Marple would be at home in. It's also a little like Midsomer; Carole and Jude's murder investigations would make great TV. Why haven't they been given their own series?

Format: Audio Cassette
This story had me hooked from the start. I enjoy the investigative style of Jude and Carole and as an ex civil servant recognise so much in Carole's character as written. Jude is more of a mystery to me still but fascinating. We need to know more about her past.
The story of actresses, writers and people in the world of pop worked well and there were so good descriptions of the characters. Never in a million years would I have guessed who had done the dirty deeds. Way surprised and pleasedI had not got it right. Simon Brett is a skilful writer.
The story was an easy read for me and I wanted to pick it back up and read another chapter as soon as possible. This has left me wanting to read more of The Fethering Mysteries...

By Mr. D. K. Smith TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Oct. 2012
Format: Paperback
Carole Seddon is not fond of Christmas, but when her best friend Jude drags her along for some last minute shopping she doesn't refuse, particularly when the shop, Gallimaufry, has some very decent bargains.

But a few days later the shop is burnt down and a body is found in the ashes. So that means that Fethering's two foremost amateur detectives have a new case to unravel, with no shortage of either motives or suspects.

The eleventh entry in the Fethering series, this maintains Simon Brett's usual high standard. Part of the appeal lies in the conflicting characters of Carole and Jude. Whilst Carole is a retired civil servant and is logical and formal, Jude is an alternative therapist, which makes her more spontaneous and out-going. But together they combine to make a formidable crime-solving team.

A complex, traditional whodunnit with no blood or gore, The Shooting In The Shop is a solid read for all mystery devotees.

Format: Paperback
Another chapter in the life of the amateur private investigators who often succeed where normal Police procedure fails. Based on a direct approach using their combined skills, sometimes together but often alone, before comparing notes afterwards, the two lady sleuths have forged an unlikely alliance that always gets to the truth.
With a wide cast of characters Simon Brett brings alive the seaside town of Fethering. Here a family is broken apart by the murder of one of its number and the loss of their business enterprise over the Christmas period. A gentle read that sucks you in and pleasantly with increasing speed takes you along the satisfying conclusion.
I love crime fiction and I'm not embarrassed to include this series as part of my enjoyment of this genre.
