The body on the beach. As the reputation of Hopwicke House grew, the hotel appeared increasingly in brochures targeted at the international rly the Americans.

The body on the beach. Soon the breakfast tables in the conservatory resounded to Californian enquiries as to what a kipper might be, or tentative Texan queries about the provenance of black pudding. The hotel was included in an increasing number of upmarket tours, and played its part in nurturing the delusion of wealthy Americans that England had been created by . Wodehouse and Agatha Christie.

This is one of the "Fethering" mysteries by Simon Brett, a British writer who I've read for probably four or five decades. I greatly prefer this series, which features two neighbors and almost-friends, to the ones about the perpetually drunk and irresponsible actor Charles Paris. The best of his books, however, are the ones about Mrs. Pargeter, the widow of a burglar. The book in question involves a death in a hotel owned by an old friend of Judith

Simon Brett's Fethering mysteries are well worth a read. I would say the "The hanging in the Hotel" is one of the best stories I have read so far. I like anything set in a hotel as it automatically means plenty of characters.

Simon Brett's Fethering mysteries are well worth a read. They are good well written yarns.

Reviews:
  • Adoraris
I'ts a murder mystery...there's gotta be a murder. But it's not more violent than M.C. Beaton, or even Agatha Christie...there is a bit more sexual context than either of them, but it's not graphic. He's a great story teller....Charles Paris is a quirky, likeable character..and actor...and all his plots are fun and easy to read. I've been reading him for years....along with the aforementioned and PD James etc. etc.
  • Golkis
Lots of suspects. Enjoy the interaction between the two friends. Plan to read more in the series. Great cozy read.
  • DART-SKRIMER
The first of the Mrs P series. Loved it.
  • Skillet
I have never read a Simon Brett mystery that I didn't find very enjoyable. Brett is a superb comic plotter.
  • Ylal
I love this series and wish my local library had more of Simon Brett's books. Perfect summer reading. Carole Seddon is a delightfully flawed heroine.
  • Dusho
Two amateur detectives run amok and sometimes without a clue. If you like cozies you can't get much better than this.

Interesting, entertaining, generally enjoyable. Too much back-tracking for me, especially early on. Original ending!
The Hanging in the Hotel is the fifth mystery in the Fethering series. Carole and Jude are next door neighbors with opposite personalities. They have become friends and go sleuthing together. Jude has been called to the Hopwicke County House Hotel to help out an old friend Suzy Longthorne who is the owner. The Pillars of Sussex ,an all male secret society group, is having a banquet at the hotel. They are local business men who indulge in heavy drinking and off color remarks. A young non member drinks too much and Jude helps him get into bed. He talks to her and seems optimistic about the future. The next day his body is found hanging from the beam of the four poster bed. Everyone says it is a suicide. Jude does not believe this because of the talk they had the night before. Carole and Jude team up to find the truth about what has happened. Everywhere they turn, they hit a dead end.

There were some twists and turns in reaching the final answer. The ending of the book was different than many mystery books. The best part of the series for me is the relationships between Carole, Jude and Ted Crisp.
