Description

It's not Beckett exactly, but a three-month run of Not on Your Wife!, a new farce by the prolific British farceur Bill Blunden, is not to be sniffed at by a jobbing actor. Which is why Charles Paris is standing on stage with his trousers around his ankles, playing Aubrey, the older lover of GIlly, wife of Bob, whose young mistress Nicky he is passing off as the property of his neighbor Ted. Rehearsals have gone well, the laughs are coming, and if his marriage is on the skids again there's always the consolation of Bell's - and the uncertain attractions of aging ingenue Cookie Stone. But by the time the troupe reaches Bath a darker mood has set in. Cookie Stone seems to think she and Charles are practically married (if only he could remember what happened!), and Charles' old friend Mark, who runs a recording studio in Bath where Charles is making a talking book, has a drinking problem that amounts to a death wish. But it's not the drink that kills Mark, it's somebody in the cast who has a dirty little secret that Mark must not be allowed to reveal...

A miss

What a wonderful series but this one. The elegant author becomes ickky. Worth a skip and on to the next.

So-so

Simon Brett is one of my favorites and I especially love his Charles Paris books. Unfortunately, this narrator didn't make a good job of reading the book. Simon Brett should really read all his own books, because then they are wonderfully entertaining and enjoyable, making the listener laugh out loud in some places.

review - Dead Room Farce

I might be done with the lovable character Charles Parrish after this one. Plot is flat as a popped tire. Reader good. Sorry I bought it.

High school boy fantasy

Our hero spent the whole of this book drunk, hungover, and/or enjoying the many female bodies which were practically forced on him. Very little of the book is devoted to the murder set up or the unraveling of the mystery afterwards. The real mystery here is why I finished this book.
