    Story
    (32)

    Charles Paris is his own worst enemy, a louche lush who can resist anything except temptation - especially in the form of women and alcohol. He’s been out of work so long now he feels he may never get a job and he’s driving Frances, his semi-ex-wife, mad. So when he’s offered a small role in a play, she nearly pushes him out of the door. But it seems that ‘The Message is Murder’ is such a terrible production that someone wants to kill off the cast.

    Cheryl Waters says: "Another BBC Value Performance"

    Where does Charles Paris: Murder in the Title (BBC Radio Crimes) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    BBC Radio Drama rates usual kudoes!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Soundtrack mimics Golden Oldies of Charles Paris's past, reminding us of his age. Dialogue is sparkling.


    Have you listened to any of Bill Nighy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All Bill Nighy's performances as Charles Paris are delightful, well worth the modest cost...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I did so twice...


    Any additional comments?

    Only the Colonial Radio Theater performances come close to matching the BBC Radio Crime dramas. Both troupes are well worth snapping up every offering.
