    "Brilliant"

    Loved it straight from the start thanks to the great Bill Nighy and cast. Would like it to have been longer but thoroughly enjoyed. Would highly recommend.

    "Of course it was wonderful"

    Mr Nighy and the usual suspects. How could it be less than wonderful. Plus the song at the end. Christmas day you can listen to this as well as watch Wonderful World

    "brilliant as expected"
    Where does Charles Paris: The Cinderella Killer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love these stories and they cast that narrate them


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Charles Paris: The Cinderella Killer?

    at the end when they ditch the big family Christmas party thing as a bad job


    Have you listened to any of Bill Nighy and Suzanne Burden ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    its up to a very high previous standard


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    they stories always make me laugh at some point


    Any additional comments?

    I love these stories and Bill Nighy telling them, there always to listenable to and I frequently go back to them time and again.

    "Another winner from the Charles Paris team..."

    I’m a big fan of the Charles Paris series featuring Bill Nighy, and this title certainly keeps the standard flying. Short on work, as ever, Charles accepts a panto season in Margate, which boasts the latest Reality TV star in the cast plus a bona-fide Hollywood name as main star. All starts well, until tensions and cracks begin to appear, and then a cast member is found dead on the beach.

    Nothing is simple in Charles’ world, and the sub-plot here is that his ‘semi-detached’ wife Frances wants to have an old-fashioned Christmas, which Charles reluctantly says he will help out with. Add to this his fraught relationship with his money-grabbing agent Maurice, and an obsessive and potentially violent stalker, you get the idea. And all the while, there’s a murder to solve…

    The scripts move along at a good pace, reminiscent of Alan Ayckbourn at his best.

    Makes me wish I had a long car journey to do…

    "Murder in Margate"

    This has got to be my favourite Charles Paris Mystery so far. Great acting, especially from the supporting cast and a terrific script, full of amusing moments and good lines. I've listened to it several times now, and enjoy it more each time! Highly recommended.

    "Jeremy Front, smashing"

    the only negative about this performance is waiting the 6 to 12 months for another. favorite lines: Charles " I can see your centerpiece" Frances: "if that line isn't in the panto, I'm not going" hilarious!

    "Still crackling!"

    Done with the usual wit and verve of all players (although attempted American accents were kinda ... odd).

    "A delight."

    I love the Charles Paris stories. Bill Nighy is perfect in the role. I laughed out loud (very loud) on many occasions. The stories are very English, as are the characters , perhaps that should read eccentric, but that just adds to their charm. Can't wait for more of them.
