In the sleepy, English village of Fethering, an author event at the local library ends in murder and it's up to amateur sleuths Carole and Jude to solve the case

The Liar in the Library Summary

The Liar in the Library by Simon Brett

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

'King of the witty village mystery' Daily Telegraph

'Perfect entertainment' Guardian

Fethering has everything a sleepy coastal town should: a snug English pub, cosy cottages, a little local library - and the occasional murder . . .

Bestselling author Burton St Clair, complete with soaring ego and wandering hands, has come to town to give a talk. But after his corpse is found slumped in his car, he won't be leaving. Jude is the prime suspect; she was, after all, the last person to see Burton St Clair alive. If she is to prove her innocence, she will have to dust off her detective skills and recruit her prim and proper neighbour (and partner-in-sleuthing) Carole to find the real culprit.
