more about our book

The Author

author picture

Simon Brett worked as a radio and TV producer before taking up writing full-time. As well as the Fethering Mysteries series, he is also the author of the TV series AFTER HENRY, the radio series NO COMMITMENTS and SMELLING OF ROSES, and the best-selling HOW TO BE A LITTLE SOD. His novel A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM was filmed starring Michael Caine.

The Novel

Mrs Pargeter is a mature widow at peace with herself and her buxom proportions. But when a friend suggests a few days at a health farm, she is happy to go along for the ride - though probably not for the slimming. She has not been there for long before she uncovers evidence of a suspicious death.


'Murder most enjoyable... An author who never takes himself that seriously, and for whom any fictional murder can frequently form part of the entertainment industry.'


'One of the wittiest crime writers around.'


'Simon Brett writes the kind of good whodunits that could have been written fifty years ago... and he has a sly sense of humour.'
