Actor and reluctant sleuth Charles Paris is facing chaos on the domestic front. He's lodging with his ex-wife Frances, and now their pregnant daughter has moved in as well. It's all a bit much....

So he is over the moon when he lands a job on the BBC Radio Rep - but the ink is barely dry on his contract when a murder takes place in Broadcasting House. A young female studio manager is found dead in an editing suite, and Charles steps in to investigate.

With a distinguished cast including Bill Nighy as Charles Paris, Suzanne Burden as Frances, and featuring Charlotte Green as herself, this four-part drama, adapted by Jeremy Front, is sheer listening pleasure.

    " I've always loved the Charles Paris series. Simon Brett has created a character in Charles Paris that is the exact opposite of what you would ever expect out of an amateur detective. This wasn't the best Charles Paris story, but it certainly wasn't the worst. It is worth checking out. "

    " I love the Charles Paris books, but this adaptation was a little too slap-sticky for me. "
