    Inhaltsangabe

    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 find herself. But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries.

    This compilation contains episodes 1 - 3: MURDER ON THAMES, MYSTERY AT THE MANOR and MURDER BY MOONLIGHT.

    Here Jack and Sarah investigate a suicide in the River Thames - or was it murder? They investigate an "accidental" fire with deadly consequences, and they nab the culprit behind the Rotary Club choir poisoning.

    Cherringham is a series à la Charles Dickens, with a new mystery thriller released each month. Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly - but with a spot of tea - it's like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby. Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick listen for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

    For fans of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple series", Lilian Jackson Braun's "The Cat Who series", Caroline Graham's "Midsomer Murders", and the American TV series "Murder She Wrote", starring Angela Lansbury.

    Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid 90's, creating content and working on projects for the BBC, Disney Channel, Sony, ABC, Eidos, and Nintendo to name but a few. Their transatlantic collaboration has underpinned scores of TV drama scripts, computer games, radio shows, and - most recently - the successful crime fiction series Cherringham.

    The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programmes including the roles of "DCI John Barnaby" in "Midsomer Murders" and "Jim Riley" in "The Life of Riley".

    Unbelievably bad plot

    A gruff retired New York Homicide detective moves to rural England although he despises the local villagers. He is rude, arrogant and patronizing, which is somehow supposed to be honest, gritty and charming? After a few month living on a boat he knows more about the river and its currents than the policemen living there all their life. He ridicules the crime scene investigators wearing "hazmat suits", when in truth every professional police force uses those, except in American tv shows. The underlying assumption is, i guess, that he must be a great detective, if he worked in New York, having to investigate a lot of murders. But practice does not always make perfect.
    The fact that this was written by an American really shows. Maybe the two authors should stay with writing for videogames.

    Geeignet für Fremdsprachen-Leser

    Das Buch ist für Fremdsprachen-Leser gut zu lesen, die Begleitung durch das Hörbuch ist für meinen Status zu schnell, sodass ich der Handlung nicht mehr folgen kann.Somit hab ich mich auf das Lesen beschränkt.
    Die Geschichte ist nett, aber einfach. Ein gutes Buch, um wieder in den Englisch-Modus zu finden.
