Miss Ethel Tither has made herself deeply unpopular in the quintessentially English village of Hilary Magna, since she goes out of her way to snoop on people, and interfere with their lives. She is found floating in a cesspool, having been bludgeoned prior to drowning in the drainage water. This is, in every way, a murky business; realising that they are out of their depth, the local police quickly call in the Yard. Inspector Thomas Littlejohn arrives on the train, and in casting around for suspects, he finds that he is spoiled for choice. But he must piece together the clues to discover who was responsible for the death of the busybody.

An old favourite
I have long been a fan of George Bellairs' books and am very glad to see them becoming available again, first for kindle and now in audio, which I hope will be the first of many more. They are such good portrayals of their times and settings, while still having interesting plots.
Littlejohn and the vicar are enjoyable, but so are all the minor characters.
Excellently well read, with good characterization and the warmth needed.
I hope this will only be the first of many more George Bellairs audio books to come!
great way to spend an afternoon!
Easy listening. No overworked violence. Just a good old detective story with some pleasing characters.
I hope more George Bellairs titles will be available soon & hopefully read by Ric Jerrom
