Summary

Although she hadn't known Leonard Mallett very well, Carole Seddon feels duty bound to attend her fellow committee member's funeral. As she suspected, the sermon is very predictable - not unlike Leonard himself. What she couldn't have predicted was that the deceased's daughter would use the occasion to publicly accuse her stepmother of murder. Did Heather Mallett really kill her husband? Deciding to get to the heart of the matter, Carole's neighbour Jude joins the new community choir - and discovers that amidst the clashing egos and petty resentments lurk some decidedly false notes. At least one chorister would appear to be hiding a deadly secret - and it's up to Carole and Jude to unearth the truth.

Weak plot

Weak plot resolution. As if author ran out of ideas. Others in the series better.

Enjoyable But Not His Best

As with this whole series easy to listen too and well read by the author. which is rare. But he does have an extensive BBC background as a producer, presenter and his great Charles Paris books dramatised (some are on Audible, if a bit expensive for a short listen).
But back to this book. Not his best. I would go back to the earlier Death series and start there. I now have I believe the whole cannon. so can't reccomend him enough. Good cosy crime well read!

Disappointing

I confess to abandoning this after 4 chapters. Mr Brett sounds somewhat bored in his narration which left me disinterested in characters, plot and outcome. A great shame
