    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    Perfect Cozy Crime

    I was looking for the something with the brit charme like Midsomer Murders.
    These books were a perfect fit for what I was looking for.

    starts off interesting and quirky, but gets worse

    The first book starts promising - a nice little countryside town, a cast of not particularly deep but interesting characters. But over the next two books the stories get flatter, the somewhat interesting cast from the first book disappears only to be replaced by new faces that instantly get cast off again, and the more we learn about the main protagonist, the more clueless and moronic he appears. Also, by book three I am seriously wondering whether the author actually knows anything about country life outside of what they learned from kitschy magazines themselves (as someone who grew up on a farm, I found the farm scenes and cow interactions of book 3 particularly cringe worthy.

    Mrs. Marple Club

    For those who love Mrs. Marple....this stories are just perfect. Mr. Parker reads all characters differently. I would give ten stars for the stories and for the perfomance. Have fun!

    Kurzweilig und brilliant gesprochen

    Ich höre die Geschichten als Englischtraining. Sie sind witzig, hintergründig, mit abwechslungsreichem Vokabular und nettem Plot. Habe jede Episode mehrfach gehört, was ich sonst nie mache. Genialer Sprecher.

    Nice, easy listening!

    Not the best mysteries ever written, but nice entertainment. The reading speed is a bit fast for my tastes, but thanks to Audible the speed can be set to a lower percentage, making it far less hectic. :D

    Absolutely delightful!

    The stories, the characters, the area, they are truly delightful!

    The narration is excellent as well!

    Thank you for many hours of funny and suspenseful entertainment!

    I can highly recommend the Bunburry Collection although it does leave you with a yearning for the home-made fudge.

    I had a hard time following

    I could not finnish the book. At chapter 22 i gave up.
    You did not get to KNOW any of the characters. Just a bunch of people chattering away about nothing. No back ground infirmation on the main character. No real plot. The character just flowing into each other.... Very disapointed . Too much " said Harry, Anthony said," The narrator did fine, pleasant voice.

    Unbearable even as a sleeping pill

    Superficial, anachronistic, naively-constructed, and clichéd content in English "country house style". Parker's reading style likewise clichéd and discriminatory at times (Indian speaks with Indian and Russian with Russian accent - obviously non-integrated foreign bodies in the author's and reader's mindsets?). Compared to that, musty Inspector Barnaby seems almost refreshing...
