Meet Charles Paris: a washed-up actor with a taste for wine, women . . . and solving crimes! A binge-worthy cozy mystery series from the original king of British cozy crime, internationally best-selling, award-winning author Simon Brett, OBE. For fans of Richard Osman - but with added bite!

A desperate actor - and involuntary sleuth - taking a job as a house painter
A horrible discovery on his first day at work
A corpse - mutilated and left for days . . .
But at least Charles Paris is NOT DEAD, ONLY RESTING!

Unemployed actor Charles Paris is desperate for a job. With no acting engagements on the horizon, he takes up a job as a house painter . . . only to discover the mutilated corpse of the young and handsome chef of a fancy London restaurant on his first day at work!

The public quarrel between murder victim Yves Lafeu and his business and life partner Tristram Gowers at their restaurant a few days prior makes this an open and shut case - especially as Tristan has gone on the run, and is nowhere to be found.

But when it becomes clear that Yves seemed to have more foes than initially thought, Charles launches into sleuthing action, determined to find out what really happened - and to catch a cunning killer.

Fans of Agatha Christie, The Thursday Murder Club, Anthony Horowitz, Alexander McCall Smith, M.C. Beaton and Faith Martin will love this hilarious cozy traditional mystery series featuring one of the funniest antiheroes in crime fiction. Written over a fifty-year-period, it perfectly captures life and contemporary attitudes in 1970s London - and beyond!
