Robert Amiss is working undercover as a waiter at a gentleman’s club at the request of his friend DS Pooley. The club secretary has allegedly jumped to his death from the club’s gallery, but Pooley believes he was murdered. Amiss finds himself in a bizarre caricature of a club run by - and for - debauched geriatrics, with skeletons in every cupboard. Why are there so few members? And did they murder the reforming secretary?

I listen to Clubbed to Death every other week -- the plot is silly but the writing is as funny and opinionated as in all the series titles, and the perfomance is impeccable.
His characterizations are perfect, his phrasing is perfect, he never emphasizes the wrong word -- he's just wonderful.
As noted, it's a very funny book.
