It is not always true that an author is the best reader for his book. However, in this case, Simon Brett , an audiobook narrator himself, does a superb job narrating this murder mystery, which takes place in the world of the theater. Brett gives the main character, Charles Paris, just the right amount of arrogance to make him believable as an actor, yet still likable. Ironically, Charles is involved with the production of an audiobook, as well as trying to solve the murder of his friend. Brett convincingly performs several characters with great depth and even involves the listener with Charles's moving struggle with the bottle. This reviewer felt like she was beside him at the bar drinking a pint. K.M.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
