Publisher's Summary

Bill Nighy returns as Charles Paris: unsuccessful actor, bad husband, and dipsomaniac. Desperately in need of work, having been kicked out of his marital home, Charles jumps at playing a missing property developer in a crime-reconstruction program. But the missing person case soon turns to murder when severed body parts begin to appear.

Television ratings soar as the public tune in to discover every gory detail of the case. The raging egos and jealous maneuverings of the producers, presenters, and the police provide a long list of suspects for Charles as he pieces together a macabre jigsaw puzzle of murder.

Bill Nighy, Suzanne Burden, and Jon Glover are among the star cast in this enjoyable mystery, dramatised by Jeremy Front.

    Story
    "Well worth the sales price!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    These BBC productions are funny, clever, tightly written and well-acted.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is a bit far-fetched, but the cast's reaction to the situation is the true entertainment.


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

    Nighy's take on Charles Paris is ideal.


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

    These Charles Paris stories are like literary rice pudding--you could consume the whole batch in one sitting, but taking it in reasonable servings is probably the best bet. It lasts longer that way...


    Any additional comments?

    Grab these productions whenever they're on sale! That way, their value only pays more in dividends!

    Story
    "Bill Nighy - always a star"
    Have you listened to any of Bill Nighy’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to quite a few of these Bill Nighy/Simon Brett stories - they are always well worth it. Decent stories, very funny and not too long. Good music in the background too.

    This story gives a good picture of Brighton, lots of laughs and the usual great relationship between Charles and his not-really-estranged wife.

    "Perfect Paris"

    The combined talents of Simon Brett, Jeremy Front and Bill Nighy make this an engaging, often hilarious listen. The script is clever and witty and Nighy is perfect as Paris. I absolutely love Brett's Fethering mysteries but have only just discovered Charles Paris and have now whizzed through all of them. More to come hopefully! If you haven't yet discovered these dramatisations start now!
