There is little of the pathetic Charles in this Charles Paris mystery. He has good friends who wine, dine, and even pay him to look into the horrific death of a beautiful chef and the disappearance of his paramour, the owner of the restaurant. All the characters spring to life through the skillful narration of Simon Prebble. It's a pleasure to listen to such an accomplished performer and not dread a mispronunciation or inappropriate accent. Even though there's murder, there are so many charmers in this book the listener may forget to try to solve the mystery and just enjoy the characters and setting. B.H.B.
