Summary

From the authors of the best-selling series CHERRINGHAM

Lavinia's annual Masked Ball at Mydworth Manor is a highlight of the season, as locals mingle with the great and famous from London. But the lavish party comes to a full stop when one of the guests is found dead down by the lake. It seems it's a clear case of a heart attack. But Harry and Kat suspect that the dead man in a mask was in fact the victim of a clever case of murder. And the killer's work at the party is not yet done...

Nathaniel Parker, born in 1962, graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and went on to join the Royal Shakespeare Company. His television career began in 1988 when he played Flying Officer 'Flash' Gordon in the LWT mini-series "Piece of Cake". He is also the lead in the BBC series "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries", based on the novels by Elizabeth George. Nathaniel Parker has an extensive list of audio books to his credit, ranging from the classics of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy to more modern writings and children's books.

Enjoyable!

Enjoyable, light-hearted romp. Pleasant easy listening that is great to listen to at night or whilst ironing etc, as it doesn't require too much active listening. I shall continue to listen to the series although it still isn't up to the Cherringham level. Please bring back Jack and Sarah!

WELL IN THEIR STRIDE FOR ANOTHER MYSTERY

Richards & Costello have now settled into a good rhythm and Book 4 is proof. Harry and Cat/Kat are now well defined characters for whom we are rooting from the start. Usual stalwarts Aunt Lavinia and the Alvis make appearances, and the Sussex countryside is starting to become a character in itself. We have still not come across anything at which Cat/Kat is not accomplished. Would be lovely if Harry could rescue her...just once. Now waiting for Book 5. (Wish we could subscribe to series like these, and either be emailed as to when the next is released, or automatically billed and it goes in our library as with PreOrders.)

The “American “ accent!

Yes, that accent the narrator has inflicted on the American woman character makes it hard to enjoy this reading . I’m speaking of “Cat”, Harry’s wife. She is supposed to be very beautiful, but with that twang, it’s hard to believe. Nathaniel Parker is such an accomplished actor, I’m surprised he couldn’t have done better with this character.

Love the performance

but found the story boring. It's the 4th in the series, and I don't like the protagonists.

This duo does it again

I enjoy reading everything these two write. The husband and wife in this series are charming. She is an impulsive New Yorker who has married a low key Brit who works for the government. Both havet been in the foreign service of their respective nations. Now renovating the dower house of his family estate they keep busy as investigators of local issues. Each new story presents a different problem that maintains our interest from introduction to unexpected conclusion

American accent?

These are enjoyable lighthearted mysteries. Unfortunately, The British are sadly poor at an American accent.

Half interesting

Predictable and rather adolescent. Nathaniel Parker read well... the American voice always seems fake though.

Thank goodness for Costello, Richards and Parker!

Another wonderful Mydworth Murder Mystery with Lord Harry and Lady Cat. I am ready for their next book to again delightfully entertain me. I enjoyed this series immensely.

Fun series

Nice light listening with some clever plot ideas. I listen to the series because of the narrator. I would recommend.

surprise ending

Another adventure with Kat and Harry. Pretty much predictable except for the little twist at the end. These are easy, comfortable reads with likable characters. Perfect for breaks from more serious dramatic reads.

Quaint old fashion mystery with style!

What a wonderful old style mystery. Costello and Richards do it again by unfolding a delightful tale around characters that we have learned to love. The only small distraction is the voice that is used for the women characters. It takes getting used to. Overall another triumph!
