The Body on the Beach

(2000)
(The first book in the Fethering series)
A novel by

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

'One of the wittiest crime writers around' ANTONIA FRASER

'Murder most enjoyable' COLIN DEXTER

Very little disturbs the ordered calm of Fethering, a pleasingly self-contained retirement town on England’s southern coast. Which is precisely why Carole Seddon, who has left behind both her husband and her career at the Home Office, has chosen to reside there. So Carole is surprised to encounter a new neighbour with one name and a colourful past. 'Jude' is not really Fethering . . . but even she is not as surprising as the body Carole finds on the beach.

A body, it has to be said, that has disappeared by the time the police arrive. Only Jude is ready to believe what Carole says she saw – and from that moment on, the two women resolve to turn detective.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
