Summary

Charlie Sparks had it all. A former primetime television personality, his outdated style has seen him relegated to the scrap heap. When he collapses and dies during a stand-up routine at a local pub, mysterious bystander Kempston Hardwick is compelled to investigate his suspicious death. As Hardwick begins to unravel the mystery, he quickly comes to realize that Charlie Sparks' death throws up more peculiar questions than answers.

Exit Stage Left is a novella, the first in the Kempston Hardwick Mysteries series.

If I could give minus I would

My heart goes out to the poor chap who had to read this trash. A pub performer dies, mysterious bystander takes up with a complete stranger and they investigate the accident. Occasionally bumping into the police. Utter unbelievable tosh.

Exit Stage Left

This is the story of two amateur detectives, one more experienced than the other, solving a crime that the police do not consider a crime. It was an interesting story and I enjoyed it. However, the volume and quality of the recording varies near the beginning. Also, the narrator takes random pauses at times and does not emphasis words as expected to begin with. The narration improves as the story continues.
