Simon Brett’s oldest and most beloved character, Charles Paris, is back. Paris, the often out-of-work actor, has a good part, for a change, playing Sir Toby Belch in a summer festival production of Twelfth Night. But when the director takes ill and then Paris’ friend in the production is the apparent victim of intentional food poisoning meant for Paris, it’s not long until the bodies start to turn up. Paris is forced to deal not only with a wild young director whose idea of Shakespeare the bard himself would hate, but with a murderer in the production as well.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Jones | 3/24/2013

    " The mystery itself wasn't the best I have ever read, but the way the author describes the world of acting and the frustrations thereof was SPOT ON. Every actor who has ever done Shakespeare or worked with a director you'd gladly see poisoned, would enjoy reading this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 8/7/2012

    " Fairly standard Simon Brett, which is not a bad thing--made a five-hour drive pass quickly, and the reader, Simon Prebble, was excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 11/2/2011

    " Not a bad british mystery. It took a while for me to get into the book but the ending was good and kept me guessing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cyndee | 10/4/2011

    " Unconventional mystery--mystery and cop work not evident until towards the end of the book. Very British, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phyllis | 9/28/2011

    " Sicken and So Die is a rather late entry in Simon Brett's Charles Paris Mystery Series. Although not one of my favorites, I did enjoy this book. It is light summer reading at its best, and certainly well-worth your time. "
