Publisher's Summary

Murder on the Riviera Express

Gerald Hennessey - silver-screen star and much-loved heartthrob - never quite makes it to Temple Regis, the quaint Devonshire seaside town on the English Riviera.

Murdered on the 4.30 from Paddington, the loss of this great man throws Temple Regis' community into disarray. Not least Miss Judy Dimont, corkscrew-haired reporter for the local rag, The Riviera Express. Investigating Gerald's death, she's quickly called to the scene of a second murder. Setting off on her trusty moped, Herbert, she finds Arthur Shrimsley in an apparent suicide on the clifftops above the town beach.

Miss Dimont must prevail, for why was a man like Gerald coming to Temple Regis anyway? And what is the connection between him and Arthur? And just how will she get the answers she wants whilst under the watchful and mocking eyes of her infamously cantankerous editor, Rudyard Rhys?

    "Slow and repetitive"

    This was a book I endured, rather than enjoyed. I had to force myself to get to the end, because I really didn’t care who the murderer was...... The first time the narrator told me that so&so’s performance was just like her part in a named play, it was quite clever. On the 20th time, it was just dull. The performance was good though, but the narrator was let down by the story.

    "a little long winded"

    I struggled to start this book, it was a little long winded until I got into it. I did enjoy it in the end a good old fashioned murder mystrey.

    Story
    "Not for me"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I started this book but found it rather dull and haven't finished it. The heroine is not called by her first name, but Miss and this sort of puts a break on any familiarity or fondness for the character. I did not find her a sympathetic subject and the pace of the story was somewhat slow. Obviously the writer must have a readership but I won't be among them


    Would you ever listen to anything by TP Fielden again?

    No


    What three words best describe Eve Karpf’s performance?

    I don't know


    What character would you cut from The Riviera Express?

    As none of the characters caught my imagination I can't answer that

    "So boring"

    What made me buy this audio book? I should have known from the description 'corkscrew-haired reporter'. Impossible to listen to, so I gave up.

    "Oh dear"

    This is a strange little read, odd characters, most of whom are rather more caricatures, the grumpy boss, the warring older ladies, Miss Dimont with the corkscrew hairstyle, far too frequently referred toward......
