Publisher's Summary

A three-month run of the new farce, 'Not On Your Wife!', is not to be sniffed at by a jobbing actor. Especially when there's the distinct possibility of a West End run. Which is why Charles Paris is standing on stage with his trousers round his ankles. Rehearsals have gone well, the laughs are coming and there's always the attractions of Cookie Stone. But by the time the troupe reaches Bath a darker mood has set in and Charles' old friend Mark has a drink problem that amounts to a death wish. But it's not the drink that kills Mark; it's somebody in the cast who has a secret that Mark must not be allowed to reveal...

    "An amusing, easy listen."

    Simon Brett does it again with this amusing, easy listening Charles Paris. I love Brett's characterisation and his narration is perfect. Unfortunately this audiobook is let down by some poor sound quality which does detract a little from the enjoyment.

    "You've got to love Charles Paris"

    Another great Charles Paris murder mystery written and read by Simon Brett.

    Charles Paris the dissolute journeyman actor finds himself involved in another mysterious death, I loved the whole story, the characters, the plot twists and sidelines, and of course Simon Brett’s excellent reading – he has a fantastic imagination to develop such entertaining and enjoyable tales, and wonderful voice to portray the characters and to make his books such successful audio books. Well done Simon and of course Charles for once again solving the mystery! (keep at it Charles, one day there will be a breakthrough in your acting career)
