Summary

From the authors of the best-selling series Cherringham.

It's Midsummer in Mydworth - and celebrated medium Bellamy Smythe is in town with his lucrative supernatural show, claiming he can contact the departed. Still deep in mourning from the loss of her father in the Great War, spinster Alice Wetherby is desperate to make contact with 'The Other Side' and Smythe is happy to oblige - even though Alice is quite broke. Suspecting that Alice is being played, Harry and Kat investigate. As the Midsummer festivities intensify, they find themselves in a game of high stakes deception and clever tricks, where nothing is what it seems, and everyone is a suspect...

Nathaniel Parker, born in 1962, graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and went on to join the Royal Shakespeare Company. His television career began in 1988 when he played Flying Officer 'Flash' Gordon in the LWT mini-series Piece of Cake. He is also the lead in the BBC series The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, based on the novels by Elizabeth George. Nathaniel Parker has an extensive list of audio books to his credit, ranging from the classics of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy to more modern writings and children's books.

Keeps getting better

Love the series. Narrator is tops as is the plot and characters. Not sure how Mr. Parker does it yet I look forward to his work.

Series started off well and just keeps getting better. Kat And Harry are interesting and complex characters. The background characters complement the story and occasionally offer insight.

I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a mystery.

Exceptional Blend

This is my all time favorite Cozy Mystery Series. Well written, touch of Romance, well developed characters, great intriguing pots and perfectly narrated. I hope they write as many Mydworth as they have Cherrigham.
