Loved listening to this. A series of letters between 8 people, it starts with a private detective being hired to ascertain if one husband is cheating on his wife.

The letter-writers are all old friends (though this impression soon fades) and their complex relationships are revealed over the course of the book. We never see any action but only read letters talking about it. We see affairs, comings-out, even possibly a murder as the detective uncovers evidence that the wife of one corespondent may not have commutes suicide several years earlier but been killed by one of her friends.

I loved The Wimbledon Poisoner and enjoyed this greatly too. I thought I might find it hard to keep track of each character but actually found it fairly easy and loved the gradual unwinding of the marriages, relationships and plots. And I now really want to see the performance of Hamlet some of the characters act in, with codpieces, rutting and dodgy accents. Reporting it by letter worked well to make it all the funnier.

Will continue to look out for Williams' books. Lots of dark fun.

By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 July 2013
Format: Hardcover
Four couples and one private detective. Four couples who are all now in their sixties and who spent many summers holidaying together in various European hotspots.

Told in the form of letters between each of the characters (except of course for poor Pamela, now deceased, but subject of much wondering by the others), Nigel Williams made me chuckle and chortle out loud many times.

The correspondence begins when Elizabeth Price hires private detective Roland Gibbons:

Dear Mr Gibbons, I am writing to you because I think my husband may be having sex. I am not sure with whom he is having it but it is certainly not with me...........

This first sentence sets the scene for the whole book, sharp and straight to the point ..... and rude, so rude! There comes a time in life when 'telling it like it is' is the only way forward and each of these characters have arrived at that point at the same time. Hidden lust is suddenly out in the open, suppressed feelings are made clear. Feelings are hurt, revenges are sought and truths are told.

Nigel Williams has entertained me over the past couple of day with this comical tale of what could be called a suburban melt-down. There are some cracking one-liners in there (a couple of which I will be saving to use myself one day!).

Nigel Williams adopts the epistolary form to tell his raucous tale of four late-middle-age Putney couples, their former exploits and their various current sexual intrigues.

Using letters to communicate in this day and age is something of a stretch, to say the least, and the author is forced to go to agonising lengths to justify his chosen narrative technique. Most of the correspondents' 'voices' sounded the same, the plot-lines were ludicrous and guffaws came there none.

Putney is a suburb of London, located southwest of the city, in Surrey. Like many suburbs of large cities, it's pretty prosperous and has a defined community of lawyers, bankers, doctors, and the like. It's a city of families and four Putney families - along with one private detective - are the main characters in Nigel Williams' hilarious novel, "Unfaithfully Yours". I ordered the book from Amazon/UK; here in the US only the Audible version is available. And that's where I'm posting this review.

Williams' book is told entirely in epistolary form. This way of telling the story has one large problem; in today's world the hand-written letter is almost a thing of the past. To believe that eight people today would write letters - not email - beggars the imagination, but somehow, it seems to work in Williams' book. And, if it works, its because the reader wants it to work. This is a very humorous book, with very off-the-wall characters who are still a bit like people you probably know, and in some cases, love.

Four couples, who used to be friends, have grown apart. They were friends because their children went to school together and when the children grew up and left home, the reason for the parents' friendship ended. In 2000, one of the wives was found dead in her living room, the supposed victim of suicide. Ten or so years later the group of former friends was brought together by a private detective, supposedly hired to look into the philandering by one of the husbands, Gerry Price, QC, and husband of Classics teacher, Elizabeth Price. Who hired the detective is one of the mysteries that doesn't get solved til the book's end.

Marriages change as they grow in years. The four couples in Williams' novel have changed possibly more than most partners.

Having read and enjoyed Nigel Williams' "The Wimbledon Poisoner" several years ago, I was hoping for something along similar lines. However, I was bitterly disappointed with this book. The plot basically concerns eight people, (four ex-couples) who at one time were friendly, communicating by letters to discuss their various marriage break-ups, apportion blame and not least,their past and present sexual affairs. To be honest, I often found it a bit confusing and had to refer to the first page several times to remind myself who was who's ex-partner. Also, the sexual content, while not being excessive or unusual for many books these days, might not be to everyone's taste. Personally, I didn't think it was very funny. The whole book, as in plot, characters and humour was a big let-down for me.
