Murder on Thames (Cherringham, #1)
Murder on Thames
My rating: is 4 of 5 stars Audio drops off at times
A bite-size mystery story. Feels like a dime novel but I see there are 45 of them for me to listen to. The first one is a grand start. Did her best friend kill herself or was she murdered? Are the divorced web designer and the retired NYC detective going to be the new crime-solving pair in England? Stay tuned.

Cherringham – a quiet town in the Cotswolds. Nothing ever happens there, or so it seems – until one morning a woman’s body is found in the river. A terrible accident, according to the police. But is this true? Sarah believes there must be more to it. In Jack, a former NYPD homicide detective, she finds a partner who is willing to start investigating with her. They soon find out that things are not as clear as the police want them to be … This first – of many cases brings Sarah and Jack together in an unlikely partnership.
Cherringham is a serial novel à la Charles Dickens, with a new audio episode released every two weeks. Set in the sleepy English village of Cherringham, the detective series brings together an unlikely sleuthing duo: English web designer Sarah and American ex-cop Jack. Thrilling and deadly – but with a spot of tea – it’s like Rosamunde Pilcher meets Inspector Barnaby.
Each of the self-contained episodes is a quick listen for the morning commute while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa. For fans of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple series, Lilian Jackson Braun’s “The Cat Who” series, Caroline Graham’s “Midsomer Murders”, and the American TV series “Murder She Wrote”, starring Angela Lansbury.
Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid-’90s, creating content and working on projects for the BBC, Disney Channel, Sony, ABC, Eidos, and Nintendo to name but a few. Their transatlantic collaboration has underpinned scores of TV drama scripts, computer games, radio shows, and – most recently – the successful crime fiction series Cherringham. The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programs including the roles of “DCI John Barnaby” in “Midsomer Murders” and “Jim Riley” in “The Life of Riley”. He is also known for his film roles in “The Nativity”, “Sorted” and “Son of Rambow”. In 2012 Dudgeon starred as “Norman Birkett” on BBC Radio 4’s Afternoon Play series written by Caroline and David Stafford.
