Summary

When a hiker falls from a cliff edge while walking the Cotswolds Way, it seems like no accident. The more Jack and Sarah investigate the walkers on the trail that day, the more likely it seems that danger is still afoot. Is there a potential killer in this Cherringham tour group? And when will he or she strike again?

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.

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'. He is also known for his film roles in 'The Nativity', 'Sorted' and 'Son of Rambow'. In 2012 Dudgeon starred as 'Norman Birkett' on BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Play series written by Caroline and David Stafford.

Great as always

Still love these Cheringham stories. Jack and Sarah grow with every one and they are two of my favourite detectives.

One of my favourites

As always, totally superb. Great story, beautifully read. My only criticism is the dreadful intro and outro music -strident, old fashioned and has to be endured, not enjoyed, to get to the brilliant stories.
Please keep writing them and please keep Neil Dudgeon reading them!

Failure to download

Couldn't get past the beginning of chapter 2. The damn thing hadn't downloaded properly! Waste of money

What a marvelous series.

These are the first audiobooks (out of the close to 800 titles in my Audible library and not
counting, I would estimate at least a couple
hundred titles I used to get in, first cassettes and then CDs) that I have ever changed the playback speed. I have, for the last few titles, reduced it to 3/4
speed. It’s nothing to do with the narration, Neil Dudgeon is superb. And technology has certainly come a long way in the quality of changing the audio speed as you’ll see if you ever play with those settings. Even at some of the extremes, the faster speeds don’t change the voice to “having just inhaled helium” nor the much slower ones sound as though a thorough inebriate has stepped up to the microphone. But back to my reason for slowing them down a wee bit; I enjoy the stories so much, it makes them last just a bit longer.

Listening candy!

We love every one of this series. Never a disappointment and no gratuitous violence, good analysis by Sara and Jack. Just wish they would get together - guess that is not the plan as they are just good friends.

A gentle fun mystery

I do hope the authors keep writing. Neil Dudgeon is a delightful narrator of these well written cozy mysteries.
All the plots are clever. The characters are like old friends now and Neil voices them very well and very consistently.
A joy to listen to... thank you.

Wonderful little stories..

A person falls or is pushed over a cliff, but it didn’t kill them because a tree stopped them. Jack and Sarah are asked to investigate it.

As always, a rated G story.

As to the narration: Neil Dudgeon is as awesome as ever.

Great series!

I absolutely love this series! Each story can be listened to independently, but it’s great to listen to them in order to see the building of characters and relationships. Good clean fun. There is some mild language—rarely—but don’t let that deter you from enjoying these stories.

This One Is a Keeper

The last couple of stories have been .. shall I say..ok, but just lacking in story content... in my humble opinion. This one, however, is back up to par. And Neil Dudgeon’s narration.. as always, stellar. Keep ‘em coming!
