Description

Actor Kelsey Grammer, best known for his roles in the TV sitcoms Cheers and Frasier, delivers Bitter Brew, a compelling mystery featuring Detective Bill Walsh, an upstate cop in the quiet, rural town of Beatriceville, 200 miles north of New York City, who suspects foul play in the death of millionaire city transplant Jonathan Kimball, even though the evidence points to suicide, not murder. 

Between the four grown daughters he adores - even if they make him crazy - his complicated relationship with his ex, and his annoying boss, probing into a death that most have deemed a suicide is the last headache Bill needs. But the inexorable desire for justice and to do his job lead him to delve into many town secrets that most in Beatriceville citizens would prefer to keep unexamined. 

Filled with colorful characters and with a riveting pace, Bitter Brew will keep listeners guessing until the unexpected denouement.

Is this supposed to be a serious story or not.

I can't tell if this some kind of parody. Characters are not deep, the story is even less deep. I just like Kelsey Grammer's voice.

Come for Kelsey Grammer, Stay for Kelsey Grammer

I'll admit it. I got this book purely because I'm a fan of Kelsey Grammer. This is a good book. The biggest flaws in the book for me were the main character's obsession with sex, sexuality, and gender issues. Going from a decent mystery to a obsession over whether a character is male or female was a pretty strong drawback.

Not My Cup of Tea

Engaging enough to keep me listening, but the old fart alley cat was more pathetic than sympathetic. The sexual content was a turn-off and I figured out the culprit well in advance of the revelation - or should I say revulsion.
Mediocre.

Good story, humorous and suspenseful with llamas a-plenty

At times outright hilarious, honest depictions of characters that were made more real by the humor and curmudgeonliness of the author. Felt like an old time radio show

This has been a surprise from running into it on Audible - no idea Kelsey had published a murder mystery, my fiction of choice. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, finishing with a few swipes at the ending tears. Kelsey is a fine actor and what fun to hear him narrating this book. The locale was a surprise but similar to my own growing up. The plot - ah, just buy it! I will be pacing until his next mystery shows up.

Despite the predictability, it was great!

I am blown away that KG wrote and narrated this. Okay, he had help, but it has turned out very well. The main character is delightful despite his dirty-old-man lusting after every woman. And his narration is tremendous. 98% of the time, I strongly discourage authors from narrating their books; it almost never turns out well, but this is one of those 2% successes! Good voices, good cadence, and good stress.

The solution to the crime is a tad predictable, but it was still enjoyable getting there. The llamas are delightful, the craft beer interesting; there were even apples, but they were not the uber-tasty apples from Macintosh Country on the east side of the Hudson. The best part of the story is the hero's realization that his hasn't been such a bad life, and his wonderful relationship with his daughters.

Oh! Might there be more stories, like a series? That would be nice.

You’re my best view..... Ehhhhhh

Started off okay. Getting really hokey as it goes along. Lost interest. Kelsey Grammer - Love his voice and acting. I think this is made for an older crowd. I’m 53 - So that’s saying something

low anxiety murder mystery

the narrator is great! the story was predictable, until the last chapter gave a surprise, although there were clues to the ending.

eagerly awaiting the next installment :)

needless to say I could listen to Kelsey Grammer talk all day. I thoroughly enjoyed the story. there was a bit of gratuitous depravity at the end I could have done without but otherwise I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope there will be a follow-up

Who doesn’t love Kelsey Grammer....

Interesting story read in a very easy listening way. He has such wonderful diction and just read it really well. I didn’t love it but I didn’t not like it. There was a lot of poor detective work and the end was a bit stunning and not what was expected but all in all it was an enjoyable way to pass a couple of afternoons. I hope he writes and/or reads another book.
