Publisher's Summary

Jack's a retired ex-cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village to find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries.

This compilation contains episodes 31 - 33.

TRAIL OF LIES:

Last year at Cherringham High, and for three girls that means facing the School Summer Challenge, a grueling fifty-mile hike across the Cotswolds, through thick woods, over steep hills, camping each night under the stars. But when one of them disappears in the middle of the night and is found dead in the morning, most believe a terrible accident has taken place. Was it really an accident? Jack and Sarah aren't convinced - and soon discover that secrets and lies can have terrible consequences ... and always leave a trail ...

DEATH TRAP:

When Edward Townes - famed writer of novels about knights and maids, and castles and conquering - attends a medieval launch party for his latest book, he arrives ready to do more than celebrate. But party night brings a blizzard, a once-in-a-century storm that sees Townes staggering home, alone ... only to be found dead the next day. With Cherringham cut-off and the blizzard still raging, Jack and Sarah start investigating. Their questions reveal that many of those still stranded in the dark village have secrets. And Townes' killer is still in the village ...

CLIFFHANGER:

When a hiker falls from a cliff edge while walking the Cotswolds Way, it seems like no accident. The more Jack and Sarah investigate the walkers on the trail that day, the more likely it seems that danger is still afoot. Is there a potential killer in this Cherringham tour group? And when will he or she strike again?

Excellent series!

Great short mysteries and perfect narration by Neil Dudgeon (DCI Barnaby on Midsomer Murders TV series).

You must start the series at the beginning so you can follow the start of Jack and Sarah meeting and falling into the investigating business and enjoy the flow of village life and recurring characters.

A Triplet of Entertainment

Three short stories of Sarah and Jack, again simply delightful listening. The stories are of mixed intrigued with the last providing the best twists. Dudgeon, as expected continues to provide a wonderful performance but again on that last story, the voices get a bit muddled. More than one character sound like they could be Jack in different dress. I suspect that having to voice five people from NYC could be a bit of a challenge. Time will spent, relaxing with Sarah and Jack. Recommended.

a bit predictable

A Charming series, as always... but this was the first compilation I felt was predictable.
