Belletristik/Erzählende Literatur


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!

"Like a little malice in your mysteries? Some cynicism in your cosies? Simon Brett is happy to oblige" THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Few crime writers are as enchantingly gifted" THE SUNDAY TIMES

"One of British crime's most assured craftsmen . . . Perfect entertainment" THE GUARDIAN

"A new Simon Brett is an event for mystery fans" P.D. JAMES

"Murder most enjoyable" COLIN DEXTER


A middle-aged actor - and sometimes sleuth - in his most important role to date!
A director who suddenly becomes sick . . .
A crazed poisoner on the loose!
With a mission to make the cast SICKEN AND SO DIE

Charles Paris has reached the pinnacle of his acting career, playing Sir Toby Belch in a festival production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. He's also moved back in with his estranged wife, Frances. Things are looking remarkably up - until the play's director is hospitalized with abdominal pains after ingesting a mushroom tartlet, and his replacement, the somewhat avant-garde Alexandru Radulescu, is intent on taking the play - including Charles' pivotal role - in a rather controversial new direction.

When a second cast member supposedly succumbs to food poisoning, Charles' suspicions grow. Is a serial poisoner targeting the group? And if so, can Charles catch the culprit before he becomes the next victim?

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!
