Description

Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry.

In "Murder at the Mousetrap," the first Bunburry book, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder - laced with a welcome dose of humour. Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy. But an accidental death - which may have been no accident - reveals that the heart of England is far from the tranquil backwater he imagined. After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie's late Aunt Augusta. And it is not long before their investigations take an even more dramatic turn...

In "A Murderous Ride," the second Bunburry book, Alfie discovers that he has not only inherited a cottage from his late Aunt Augusta but also a 1950s Jaguar. He is dismayed: for reasons of his own, he no longer drives. Aunt Augusta's best friends, Liz and Marge, persuade him to get behind the wheel again - but that's just the start of his troubles. Alfie discovers it's a seriously bad idea to get on the wrong side of the local police sergeant. Especially when he finds himself at a murder scene and the sergeant decides Alfie's the murderer. There's only one thing to be done. Alfie has to track down the real murderer himself - which will force him to drive as he's never driven before.

In "A Taste of Murder," the third Bunburry book, a local beef farmer is found dead and Betty Thorndike, vegetarian and Bunburry's only Green Party member, is in the frame. Despite what everyone thinks, Betty is absolutely not Alfie McAlister's girlfriend. But Alfie knows what it's like to be wrongly accused, and enlists the help of his fellow amateur detectives, Liz and Marge, to find out who's responsible. There's just one problem about a farm-based investigation - Alfie's scared of cows...

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.

Lovely, sweet story and superb narration

What a charming series of stories! Alfie McAlister is a relatable character, new(ish) to the town of Bunburry. As he becomes acquainted with the townspeople, so do we, in addition to Alfie himself. The mystery within each story is less important than character development. The narration is great, capturing the mood and personality of each character precisely. I look forward to additional stories in the series. Such a feel-good listen. Thank you!

Short!

I bought this, it said it was almost 8 hours long, it might have lasted 5 minutes. Story seemed to have a sort of beginning.

Geez.

I don’t expect a perfect American accent but the narrator making a woman sound like a man really pulls you out of the story. Total shame, it’s the worst narration I’ve come across in years. They should hire a second narrator to do the American bits. This guy simply can’t pull it off. Please fix this.

Great narrator!

I know Nathaniel Parker from tv, and I liked him there, but his narration was wonderful. He made all the characters come to life!

This Bunburry 1-3 selection was very, very Good!

Truly enjoyed this..the narrators were great, the story was great. Easy to become involved with the characters and the stories.
A big 'thumbs up' all the way around and left me wanting more!
;HOWEVER, now the rest of the series is only available in a 'single' story selection.
How dissappointing...They should be grouped like the first was/is. Love the series but will NOT sacrefice a whole credit for only a short ..when the first selection for a credit was 3 stories.
So I won't get to hear the rest..... which is sad.

Excellent Stories!

Comfortable and relaxing story lines that dragged me into an easy to enjoy set of stories. There is humor and I caught myself laughing. No high aristocratic language. Just good old fashioned easy listening.

Light and entertaining.

Well narrated, light and entertaining. A welcome distraction in between a heavy workload during Lockdown.
