Modern art dealer Granville Hardwick has a way with people - a way of making them wish he were dead. His London gallery is filled with works of questionable merit, his dating pool consists of other men's wives, and his home is the eyesore of a fine old neighborhood. The neighborhood of Scotland Yard's Chief Superintendent Tony Hetheridge, as a matter of fact. So when Hardwick turns up dead, bashed on the head by a rather tasteless reproduction, it's Hetheridge and his new bride, Kate, who embark on solving the case.
When he married Kate, Tony expected things to be different. But with Kate's ne'er-do-well relatives making trouble on the home front, and his own enemies attacking from within Scotland Yard, the case of the dead art dealer and three unfaithful wives might do more than change Mayfair. It might change Lord and Lady Hetheridge forever.

Yes. Trying to figure who was the murderer
Delightful characters set in England ranging from a peer of the realm to his cockney wife and her problematic family. The narrator brought the story to life w a wide range of accents.
I was unable to finish the book. The narrator's attempt at women's voices was a mess.
Have read and listened to the entire series and enjoy it so much. The characters are well drawn and the book is peppered with humor, though not a comedy. Can't wait for the next book.
Disjointed story, bad accents, crude attempt at English accents. Total waste of time and money, am returning this asap.
