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 22 - 24. The storyline after episode 24 continues in the first Cherringham novel "Dead in the Water".

The Song Never Dies:
When Alex King, leader of legendary 90s rock group Lizard, hosts a party to get the band back together, old grudges surface. At dawn Alex is found floating in the pool of his Cherringham mansion. To the police it's a drug-fueled accident. But when Jack and Sarah get involved, they quickly discover that while a song may never die - the person, who wrote it, might have been murdered.

A Bad Lie:
When talented young artist Josh Andrews goes missing after a stag night prank at Cherringham Golf Club, the bride in desperation asks Jack and Sarah to find him. It seems he’s gotten cold feet, with the wedding just days away. But Josh is not all he appears to be... And soon suspicion falls on the Golf Club itself. Can Josh be found before he takes justice into his own hands?

A Death in the Family:
When a doddering Harry Platt tumbles from the top of his stairs in a deadly fall, it looks like an unfortunate accident. But when solicitor Tony Standish meets the beneficiaries and discovers the immense size of the estate, his suspicions are aroused. Jack and Sarah are asked to investigate and find that nothing is what it seems when it comes to families - not when money and secrets are involved.

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 listen 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. The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programmes including the roles of "DCI John Barnaby" in "Midsomer Murders" and "Jim Riley" in "The Life of Riley".

Cliff hanger

All the crimes and misdemeanors of this Cotswold village uncovered and beautifully told by Neil Dudgeon. Good description and observations of people and places make this an excellent series of gentle crime detection and worth following.

Brilliant!

I've listened to all of the Cherringham stories and this one does not disappoint. Once again, wonderful narration by Neil Dudgeon and engrossing plot lines. I just love the charm of Cherringham and feel I really know the characters. The developing relationship between Jack and Sarah is tantalizing and I cannot wait for the next episodes to find out what happens next....

Cliffhanger

Excellent as ever. Not wished no to pre-empt but would it spoil the dynamic if they got together?

Good light mysteries

The Cherringham mystery stories are great light mystery reads. They are not great literature, nor are they the most gripping mysteries around. They are, however, good stories with great characters and good enough plots to keep you engaged. Neil Dudgeon is a great narrator.

I do think the earlier sets were stronger, but would still recommend these latest stories.

The ending was a cliffhanger!

I adore this series & I was airing for this next 3 book collection so anxiously! and of course it did not disappoint! Plenty of the classic banter & crime solving with our favorite duo & an ending in the last book that left me on pins and needles. I can hardly wait for the next compilation to come out again!

Highly enjoyable series.

I have found this series to be habit forming. Interesting characters and great locations do not fail to hold my attention. Neil Dudgeon reading is perfect.

Love this series!

In this latest set of three stories, the main characters continue to develop while they solve mysteries. We’re drawn deeper into the dynamic between Jack and Sarah. I can’t wait for the next set to come out.

Best cozy literati ever

I have listened to all the Cherringham books and they are like a mini vacation.
Neil Dudgeon does a marvelous job of narration as well as his Midsomer Murders acting

Delightful

This whole series is a delight. Light-hearted, engaging, fun. Easy to listen to and a great narrator. Great literature it is not, but with genuinely likeable characters and interesting plots, this series is worth the listen. The authors very nicely manage to avoid the irritating cliches to which this genre seems prone.

Cheap trick, I’ve come to expect so much more

I have listened to all of the Cherringham mysteries and have loved them. Wonderful narration and the stories are really good and sometimes very insightful and clever. And they end on a good note
- until this last one. You would think if people had taken the time to listen to 24 stories, they have an audience. But no, they had to leave one of their two main characters in crisis. A very cheap trick to make sure the fans buy the next installment
