Although she hadn't known Leonard Mallett very well, nor liked him particularly, Carole Seddon feels duty bound to attend her fellow committee member's funeral. As she suspected, the hymns, readings and sermon are all very predictable - not unlike Leonard himself. What she couldn't have predicted was that the deceased's daughter would use the occasion to publicly accuse her stepmother of murder. Did Heather Mallett really kill her husband, as many Fethering residents believe? Deciding to get to the heart of the matter, Carole's neighbour Jude joins the new community choir - and discovers that amidst the clashing egos and petty resentments lurk some decidedly false notes. At least one chorister would appear to be hiding a deadly secret - and it's up to Carole and Jude to unearth the truth.

"Simon Brett narrates his own audiobook, a mystery full of family drama and old grudges. At the funeral of her father, Alice Mallett accuses her stepmother, Heather, of having murdered him. Despite having been so accused, Heather immediately throws herself into planning the ideal wedding for Alice. Wondering why Heather would want to help a woman who maligned her publicly, community busybodies Carol and Jude jump on the case. Lending strong flavor to the audiobook is the pleasant and expressive voice of Brett, who depicts each character vividly and distinctly. His performance entices listeners to the English village of Fethering. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
