The wickedly entertaining new Fethering mystery featuring chalk-and-cheese detective duo Carole and Jude
Simon Brett worked as a producer in radio and television before taking up writing full-time. He is the author of the much-loved Fethering mysteries, Charles Paris series and the Mrs Pargeter novels. In 2014 he was awarded the Crime Writers' Association's prestigious Diamond Dagger for sustained excellence and contribution to crime writing. He lives in an Agatha Christie-style village in the South Downs.
"I enjoyed The Killing in the Cafe immensely. Jude and Carole make a good investigative team. Jude is more intuitive while Carole is more straightforward. Although their approaches differ, these two intelligent women complement each other." -- S. Sasse, reviewer "This book is non stop fun. I adore this book and hope for more in the series. It was a delight to read from cover to cover. True mystery fans will adore this book." -- L. Reed, reviewer "While obviously more Midsomer and less Luther the stories do have a real crime mystery to solve and as a mirror on society delivers a credible case and an entertaining story." -- R Latham, reviewer "The Killing in the Cafe... is an old-fashioned, clever mystery that keeps the reader guessing all the way to the end. The quirkiness of the characters lends to the intrigue of it all and the who-done-it, eerie quality remains to the very surprising end. Relationships run awry motivate the crime and provide a satisfying end that is ironic indeed! This is a stand-alone story but will make many readers want to read the other mystery novels in this series! Nicely plotted, Simon Brett." -- V Crystal, reviewer
