Publisher's Summary

Jack's a retired ex-cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries.

This compilation contains episodes 7 - 9: THE BODY IN THE LAKE, SNOWBLIND and PLAYING DEAD.

Here Jack and Sarah are called to task when the body of a dignitary turns up in a lake - with all too many suspects involved. A resident of the retirement home falls victim to the elements in one of Cherringham's worst blizzard in years - but was there something sinister at work here? And Cherringham Christmas show rehearsals spin into chaos as someone is out to sabotage the event with deadly repercussions.

Cherringham is a serial novel à la Charles Dickens, with a new mystery thriller released each month. Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly - but with a spot of tea - it's like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby. Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick read for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

For fans of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple series", Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who series", Caroline Graham's "Midsomer Murders", and the American TV series "Murder She Wrote", starring Angela Lansbury.

Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid 90's, creating content and working on projects for the BBC, Disney Channel, Sony, ABC, Eidos, and Nintendo to name but a few. Their transatlantic collaboration has underpinned scores of TV drama scripts, computer games, radio shows, and - most recently - the successful crime fiction series Cherringham.

    I enjoy these stories because I listen at night and they are easy to pick up. I enjoy the relationship between the two main characters. I also like the narrator's voice.

    "Brilliant"
    Where does Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation (Cherringham 7 - 9) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high


    What did you like best about this story?

    I never guess who did it, which is my bench mark for a well written crime novel. It is also gentle and amusing.


    What about Neil Dudgeon’s performance did you like?

    He read it perfectly and I could imagine the characters, his characterisation was so good. It was a pleasure to listen to him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes quite happily.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next installments

    "Brilliant"
    If you could sum up Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation (Cherringham 7 - 9) in three words, what would they be?

    Clever, intriguing, page turner


    What other book might you compare Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation (Cherringham 7 - 9) to, and why?

    Cherringham - A Cosy Crime Series 1-3 and 4-6. All of them are brilliantly written who dunnits. Unusual to have an ex NYPD detective investigating crime in and around an English village with a local computer wiz but, it really works.


    Which character – as performed by Neil Dudgeon – was your favourite?

    Definitely Jack. Mr Dudgeons voice characterisation is very convincing and Jack is written as a totally believable character.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not so cosy


    Any additional comments?

    Every story in the series that has been translated into English is very good. Are of a very high standard and you rarely guess the criminal before the end as there are many twists and turns. I really hope Audible start selling the rest of the series as I can't wait to listen to them all

    "Highly recommended!"

    I've read the previous instalments of this series and I've loved them all! After way too many psychological thrillers these were enjoyable mysteries.
    In each episode, you'll learn a little more about Sarah and Jack (the main characters). Character development is steady and delightful.
    Neil Dudgeon - the best narrator I've come across here on Audible!

    "Two unlikely people solving crimes"

    I could picture the American gent on his boat and the English lady living in her cottage. I could see them hurrying around looking for clues. solving the crimes. I look forward to each new book to see what they get into next. I enjoyed their humor. Give it a try, you just might surprise yourself.

    I have read the series from the first book through the 9th. So delightful and hard to put down. The setting and characters are well developed. The plots are quirky and surprising right up to the end. If you like cozy stories, you will love these.

    "More, please, Cherringham and Dudgeon!"

    This series has been in my ear while I gardened, cleaned house, and scooped leaves out of the pool. Very pleasant, and I only figured out in advance the answer to one mystery, a good sign! Eagerly looking forward to the next installment, 10-12, in English, please!
    Neil Dudgeon is such a good narrator, and shows much more personality here than in Midsomer Murders! I'll be looking for his name on more audiobooks.

    Story
    "Acting? Fine. Narrating? Not so fine."

    These are pleasant enough short stories and I thought I would enjoy Mr. Dudgeon's narration because I have enjoyed his performances on television. Wrong. What doesn't come across on television is his very narrow tonal range, and complete lack of emotional expression. On film, that must be accomplished with facial expressions because I never noticed it before, but narrating......I noticed.
