Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry.

In "Murder in High Places", the sixth Bunburry book, Oscar will brave the Cotswolds for the first time! Alfie has tried for months to convince his best friend to visit him - but when a glamorous High Society Party in honour of celebrated actor Dorian Stevens is announced, Oscar just can't resist.

Betty is the worst

I really don’t understand the appeal in Betty. She is such a downer. Other than her, the characters are great, and the story is wonderful.

Alfi.. messes up

This latest story in the series has been the most interesting to me. My only complaint about this series is that the secondary characters except for Oscar and Liz are not very likable and some do not even seem sane (the Sargeant etc.). Betty as a potential GF is too self-involved and angry to be any comfort or foil for the issues that Alfi is facing. She thrives on her one-track understanding of life and world view which alienates others in this small town....easier to bully than in a big city. If the series continues, I hope there will be some more palatable characters in them. While I dearly love the intro/exit music to the Cheringham series, I don't like the music to this series, it doesn't seem to fit. But all in all, I am enjoying the series, especially the English locale, Alfi, and his friend Oscar (AKA Land the Butler). Highly appreciate that it's clean, smart, and fun. Excellent narrator and sound quality.

One of the Best of the Series

This story may be the best yet in the series. More sober, with complicated relationships and disappointments, while still retaining some of the humor. Good job!!
