Publisher's Summary

When a prominent family's daughter flees sleepy Sussex to seek a career on the stages of a glittering West End, Harry and Kat are asked to check in on the young woman. But the two of them soon discover that there is a much bigger danger to the woman and her family than mere acting dreams being crushed.

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.

Disappointed

I cannot say that I like this series. There is nothing new to it. The authors are following along the line of the Cherringham series but without success. in my opinion it would be better if they continue the Cherringham series. Also the narrator does not deliver the performance as Neil Dudgeon does.

Another great Mydworth Mystery

I come to these books knowing that I am going to be entertained without spending tons of time getting to the point. The authors know their formula and implement it flawlessly. Highly recommended series.

London Calling

Light reading mystery. I found the plot a bit old fashioned and not very complicated. Too easy to see what was next.
Read by Nathanial Parker. always a good reader.

Disappointing

The charm of the first two books is totally missing here. The characters are flat. The plot can be totally summarized in two sentences. No suspense. the narrator tries to save this book, but it is irredeemable.
I am returning it.

Dorathy we're not in Cherringham anymore

This is the 3rd Mydworth mystery I've listened to, perhaps if I read it my review wouldn't be so low but the narration of Kat Is not getting any better and I'm afraid it's locked into his Head now that this is the way she's to be read. I can't stand the nasally, butch, weird American Voice that he does for her, She acts so tough and her husband Harry I feels very wimpy.
Love Cherringham, love what Neal and Matthew does with it, even with some of their little fo- pause, I'm along for the ride and enjoy the listen. It also helps that Neil Dudgeon is doing the narration. However, I feel these books are thrown together quickly and are basically silly. Also not a fan of this whole Suffragette vain they're going on. Kat always talking with her mouth full even in the Bronx in the 20s, I would think young women were told not to talk with their mouth full And certainly as a US diplomat. You would think by now she would have learned a little class and at least play the part now and again, a little bit of the rough edges taken off but no and of course Harry, Lord Harry finds it all endearing and never once wishing she would use a little tact. Would much rather see another full length Cherringham, novel or any Cherringham for that matter than anymore in this series, sorry to say.

LOVE IT!!!

They Mydworth and Cherringham Mysteries are quickly becoming my favorite short stories. I love the characters. I love the story lines. Some are a bit predictable, others not so much. I am always excited to start the next one. If you are looking for a quick read, or listen, these series are perfect!!!

Story light, Narration makes it good

Another cozy story from Richards and Costello. The plot has a few surprises, but the suspense does not electrify your nerves. Which is exactly the purpose of their books—you can relax. Nathaniel Parker’s narration brings it to life, and through him you hear many different personalities on your mental stage. Mr. Parker deserves his 5 stars, every time.

Great Short Story

Kat and Harry have become favorite characters. Each episode develops their characters a little bit more.
Nothing serious, just a good, clean story! Makes for great summertime listening while taking a walk through the gardens.

Great main two characters is highlight

I enjoy Kat and Harry very much. I am not keen on sleazy night clubs/bars as settings, or the stereotypical corrupt, sexist, antagonists, so this was my least favorite of the first three. But I like the series a great deal.
