When portrait-painter and occasional detective, Charles Honeybath, pays a visit to his old friend Edwin Lightfoot, there are a few surprises in store. Edwin's irksome wife is packing her bags, while Edwin is indulging in an eccentric game of pretence- acting the part of a long-dead petty criminal named Flannel Foot. Days later, when Edwin disappears, Honeybath finds himself with a mystery to solve and some decisions to make about his life- will he be lured by his intended haven?

'Honeybath's Haven' is simply enjoyable. Do not expect anything 'gritty'. I would not describe it as comic, but it is light and fun. Just settle down, enjoy the characters and the puzzle, and let the wonderful English wash over you. Jeremy Clyde has just the right voice for this book, and reads it superbly. A great book to de-stress to. A few minutes of letting it roll over you, and you will find yourself smiling. Thoroughly recommended for lovers of civilised murder mysteries and sophisticated English wit.
