Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Patience Tomlinson doesn’t miss a step in her stellar performance of this British charmer, full of twists and interesting characters. Bea Abbot, a 60-something widow who owns Abbot Domestic Agency, is called in when a man is discovered dead in his bed, draped in a garish red gown with his face made up. Is it suicide or something more sinister? Bea, who denies that she investigates murder, does just that and with aplomb, sorting through a host of suspects while also dealing with her own house, full of workmen and her domestically challenged son, who has been "kicked to the curb" by his wife. Wacky and wonderful, this audiobook is fun filled and fabulous. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
