    I discovered Simon Brett because I’m a massive Hitchhiker’s Guide fan. I was exploring some of the older productions when I came across his name. Brett’s stint in radio and television was interesting enough that I decided to experiment with some of his novels.

    I had no idea he had written so many Fethering Mystery books until I saw this list. In fact, I had no idea he had written so many novels. I read Death on the Downs and The Hanging in the Hotel.

    Both novels fascinated me because Carole and Jude’s investigative methods made no sense. They kept asking strangers personal questions, and those strangers would answer honestly. It should have repelled me, but Brett’s humor kept me entertained.
