Publisher's Summary

Private detective and poet Nigel Strangeways is invited to address the Maiden Astbury literary society. The picturesque Dorset town is home to Bunnett's Brewery, run by the much disliked, and feared, Eustace Bunnett and shortly before Nigel's visit, Bunnett's dog Truffles, was found dead in one of the brewery's vats.

The culprit was never caught - although there was no shortage of suspects - but when a body is then found in the same vat, boiled down to its bones, Nigel is called into action to help capture the killer.The third book in the Nigel Strangeways series, this is a gloriously inventive, puzzling and witty investigation to delight all fans of classic crime.

    "An intriguing story - but an irritating reading"
    What did you like best about There's Trouble Brewing: Nigel Strangeways, Book 3? What did you like least?

    This is an excellent story with lots of period detail and local colour. The solution is a little obvious from the mid-point but this does not detract from the denoument and the detective's explanation of the crime.
    The reading, however, is full of irritating idiosyncrasies particularly the strange, halting delivery with which is quite effective in the dialogue but otherwise disrupts the flow and obscures the meaning of many passages. Also, for a story set in Dorset, it is confusing that almost everyone speaks with a Northcountry accent.
    There are also some editing defects at intervals with short passages repeated.
