Editor reviews

Actor Simon Jones performs Simon Brett’s Corporate Bodies, the 14th in his Charles Paris series of mystery novels, which follow the exploits of an alcoholic and perpetually out-of-work actor as he finds himself embroiled again and again in dangerous - and sometimes even deadly - mysteries, which seem to follow wherever he goes.

Jones is a skillful performer whose light narration draws out the deft humor of this engrossing whodunit, and his blunt, lively delivery is brisk and engaging, trapping listeners in the rapidly escalating tensions of this gripping audiobook.

Summary

Charles Paris, an out-of-work actor, takes a star gig is as a forklift driver in a Delmoleen Company corporate video. Something about Delmoleen is deeply troubling to Charles. That "happy family" facade may be just that. Mockery, jealousy, lust, envy, they all seem to be pervasive. Still, the work is easy and the money is good; it's even fun learning to manipulate a forklift. But it's a responsibility too, as Charles soon discovers: a forklift can be made into a potent murder weapon.
