Bill Nighy returns as Charles Paris: unsuccessful actor, bad husband, and dipsomaniac. Desperately in need of work, having been kicked out of his marital home, Charles jumps at playing a missing property developer in a crime-reconstruction program. But the missing person case soon turns to murder when severed body parts begin to appear.
Television ratings soar as the public tune in to discover every gory detail of the case. The raging egos and jealous maneuverings of the producers, presenters, and the police provide a long list of suspects for Charles as he pieces together a macabre jigsaw puzzle of murder.
Bill Nighy, Suzanne Burden, and Jon Glover are among the star cast in this enjoyable mystery, dramatised by Jeremy Front.

The combined talents of Simon Brett, Jeremy Front and Bill Nighy make this an engaging, often hilarious listen. The script is clever and witty and Nighy is perfect as Paris. I absolutely love Brett's Fethering mysteries but have only just discovered Charles Paris and have now whizzed through all of them. More to come hopefully! If you haven't yet discovered these dramatisations start now!
