A Comedian Dies

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Simon Brett

Narrated By: Frederick Davidson

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: January 2007

Duration: 6 hours 8 minutes


Charles Paris, middle-aged actor turned amateur sleuth, is vacationing at a small English seaside town. Irresistibly drawn to anything theatrical, Charles seeks entertainment at the local music hall and endures a series of not-so-wonderful vaudeville acts in the hope that the man given star billing will be worth watching. But when Bill Peaky comes on stage with his electric guitar and grasps the microphone, he instantly drops dead, apparently due to faulty wiring of the stage equipment.

It looks like an accident, but Charles is not so sure, and starts to find out more about the people in the other acts on the bill: Janine, the pretty dancer who disappears; Chox Morton, seedy and unduly nervous; and Lennie Barber, a one-time star comedian trying to make a comeback. The more Charles investigates, the more suspects turn up.

"Typical Brett: Well-realized characters and urbane dialogue...[with] a pronounced touch of irony."-New York Times Book Review
