Publisher's Summary

Brimley Manor, home to an eccentric museum of oddities from its owner's lifetime of exotic travels also holds dark secrets. When a suspicious fire breaks out, the biggest question must be... was it just an accident? Sarah and Jack think not. As they begin to explore the history and people of Brimley Manor, they soon learn that this very curious place might also be quite deadly...

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 read for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

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 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'. He is also known for his film roles in 'The Nativity', 'Sorted' and 'Son of Rambow'. In 2012 Dudgeon starred as 'Norman Birkett' on BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Play series written by Caroline and David Stafford.

Jack and Sarah. At it again

I do like these stories although jack has a lot of typical sayings that I think could be cut. This one was one of the weakest with not a murder in sight.

No One Murdered! Yippie!

Just a GREAT story... without a corpse!! Some unfortunate history facts, but the story very well written and totally up to the authors’ quirky story best! And of course .. Neil Dudgeon!

Excellent, as always..


Another great Cherringham novella with Jack and Sarah. This one was about a manor house in which a fire started, even with no one living there and Jack and Sarah being asked to look into it, while fire investigators looked into it too. As always, it was a quick and excellent story.

No romance or swearing.

As to the narration: Neil Dudgeon was as awesome as ever.
