Summary

When Ed Finnlay - computer programmer and devoted father of two - goes missing, there's not a lot the local police can do. After all, Ed himself told them he would be gone... for quite some time. As the weeks go by with no news, his wife reaches out to Jack and Sarah for help. But they soon learn that there are odd secrets about this missing husband and that he might not only be gone, but also in serious danger. Can Jack and Sarah do what seems impossible... and find Ed Finlay?

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 read for the morning commute, while waiting for the doctor, or when curling up with a hot cuppa.

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 the best-selling mystery series Cherringham. Their latest series project is called Mydworth Mysteries.

The narrator of the audiobook, Neil Dudgeon, has been in many British television programmes 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.

This should be a TV show!

I love this book series it is one of my favourites. I love the characters and the world around Cherringham. Neil Dudgeon is fantastic as the narrator. I have listened to all 41 books as of writing this, I hope there are a lot more books to come!

Love Cherringham..

I simply love Jack and Sarah! This is the 41st novella about Cherringham and I've enjoyed every one of them. This one was about a disappearing man that Jack and Sarah said they'd find for his wife.

No romance and no swearing at all.

As for the narration: Neil Dudgeon is a good narrator but he does need to stop making Sarah sound like a man.

Felt a shift in this story.

I felt a shift in this Cherringham story. It was the opposite of why I have adored this series. I found this to be a bit lazy and predictable. Because social media apps and technology rule the real world, I like to step inside a story where it doesn't...at least not as much. And I always found all of the male and female characters balanced and strong; equals in strength and determination. At least a great portion of the time. In this story, I feel that this is where it took a turn for me. The real world wandered into Cherringham a bit too much. The perfect balance was missing for me this time.



Overall, the perfect balance was missing from this one for me.

Always looking forward to the next story.

Jack, an ex New York City detective, and Sarah, a web designer and single mom, team up in the village of Cherringham to solve mysteries of all sorts in these delightful short stories. The narrator, Neil Dudgeon, is excellent at bringing these wonderfully entertaining tales to life as I imagine the authors, Matthew Costello and Neil Richards, intended. And thank goodness Neil Dudgeon doesn’t give Jack an obnoxious John Wayne or Marlon Brando accent! Perfect in every way but one. The stories can’t come soon enough! Well done, gentlemen. Thank you!

LOVE this little series

These are like potato chips.. you can't have just ones. The authors have created a lovely English village
with a retired NYC detective living in a boat on the river. He solves local crimes with a young
business woman who lives in the village with her kids.
The mysteries are based on current issues, the characters are simple
but relatable and things get tied up neatly at the end. These are short 'listens,'
perfect for a relaxing story after a stressful day, or after finishing a long, intense book.

Interesting plot line

I always enjoy the Cherringham episodes but think this was one of the best. Enjoy the way the main characters continue to be fleshed out into such believable people.

Twists and turns!

As usual, narrator was wonderful. This story was really interesting, full of twists and turns to keep me guessing. While it was obvious near the end who the baddie might be, the story quickly direct your attention away again. It kept me in suspense.

but missing the jingle

Without the jingle, I was not prepared at the beginning not resolved at the end. It's not the same thing.

The Cherringham I Know and Love.

Episodes 40 and 41 have renewed my interest in the series. A couple of the preceding episodes seemed to be written from a template. Boring and predictable. BUT episodes 40 and 41 kept me interested to the end. Welcome back.
