A stand-alone, lighthearted crime romp featuring amateur sleuth Fellworth Dolphin by the bestselling MC Beaton.
Ignorance is bliss... especially when it comes to murder! Ever since the death of his father, Fellworth Dolphin has slaved away as a waiter to support his miserly, cold-hearted mother. So when she suddenly dies Fellworth is shocked to discover she has left him a fortune. Somewhat confused, Fell teams up with a girl from work, Maggie, to investigate the source of the riches. But what they find instead is a closet full of skeletons... Is it really possible Fell's father was involved in a decades-old train robbery? And who is the mysterious woman in the portrait hidden in his mother's wardrobe? As Fell and Maggie poke around the village for answers they find themselves on a surprise-filled path to danger and adventure - but all this good fortune could come to a sudden end if they don't stay one step ahead of a cunning killer...
M C Beaton is the author of the hugely successful Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, both published by Constable & Robinson. She left a full time career in journalism to turn to writing, and now divides her time between living in a village in the Cotswolds very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely, Paris and Istanbul.

I love M C Beaton but this was dull, dull, dull.. I gave up about halfway through.
Yes, Hamish McBeth and Agatha Raisin.
No, none. In my opinion.
Action, Romance, mystery, personal insecurity, shame, tension and unsolved crime. what more do you need? Nothing accept for the story to go on.
All of it. The twists and turns, the unrequited love finally revealed. The leading male finally gets a clue.
No this is the first.
No, its just a good listen over all.
