Pearl and McGuire are thrust together again as partners in crime in this ninth instalment of the popular Whitstable Pearl Mystery series, from bestselling author, Julie Wassmer.

Pearl Nolan receives a wedding invitation from an old school friend she hasn't seen for years. Amy, a journalist, has chosen somewhere very special for her wedding ceremony – the 17th century Kent country house of Mount Ephraim. Nestled in an 800-acre estate, Pearl sees this break as a chance to leave crime behind, along with her own detective agency and her restaurant, The Whitstable Pearl. Accepting Amy's invitation, Pearl also looks forward to meeting the happy couple's friends and family, as well as Amy's fiancé, Guy, a handsome and successful adventurer who appears to be Mr Perfect. She also has time to reflect on her own engagement to Canterbury CID detective, DCI Mike McGuire ... But before any wedding bells sound, murder strikes – and Pearl and McGuire are thrust together again – as partners in crime.

Jennifer Kirby meticulously presents the vicious guests in this Christie-esque mystery set in an English country house. Listeners join the pre-wedding celebration for Amy Young and wealthy adventurer Guy Priddey. Also in attendance is private detective Pearl Nolan--a lifelong friend of the bride who senses a disquieting undercurrent to the goings-on. Kirby gives each individual distinction in the many conversations (both direct and eavesdropped upon), particularly those of selfish and bossy Babs Meadows, who thinks only of herself even in the face of a gruesome murder. Adding to the action--and fun--are Pearl's hippie mother; a well-rendered, memorable eccentric; and Pearl's serious fiancé, Detective Chief Inspector Maguire. The assortment of disagreeable characters, all potential suspects, and a mysterious underground passage are enhanced by Kirby's spirited audio presentation.
