Summary

It’s high summer when Molly Pargeter drags her amiably bickering family to a rented Tuscan villa for the holidays. Molly is sure that the house is the perfect setting for their three-week getaway, but soon she becomes fascinated by the lives of the absent owners and things start to go horribly wrong.

Excellent on all Counts

Had read the paper version twice before. The audio version is excellent with the different characters read by Martin Jarvis with believable voices. Part detective novel / part comedy and as set in August in Tuscany slso makes for relaxing bedtime listening.

Just brilliant

Funny, witty, perceptive. A complete joy. Martin Jarvis was suberb as the narrator. We laughed all the way through.

Boring book

I would not recommend this book. Unappealing characters, not much of a story line. Had high hopes from Mortimer, but was disappointed.
