Inhaltsangabe zu „Cherringham - The Last Puzzle“ von Matthew Costello

When amiable old village eccentric Quentin Andrews dies, the good folk of Cherringham are astonished at the crowd that turns up to his funeral. But even more astonished are the beneficiaries of his will: Quentin has left a veritable fortune to whomever is the first to solve an intricate 'Cherringham crossword.' That puzzle is only the first of many that Jack and Sarah will uncover as they follow the treasure hunt for clues and learn the truth about who Quentin Andrews really was ... and the biggest mystery of them all ... was he - in fact - murdered? Cherringham is a serial novel à la Charles Dickens, with a new mystery thriller released each month. 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. For fans of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple series, Lilian Jackson Braun's The Cat Who series, Caroline Graham's Midsomer Murders, and the American TV series Murder She Wrote, starring Angela Lansbury. Co-authors Neil Richards (based in the UK) and Matthew Costello (based in the US), have been writing together since the mid 90’s, 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 - most recently - the successful crime fiction series Cherringham. Now into its second season of 12 novellas, Cherringham is popular around the world and has been adapted as a series of audiobooks in English and German.

    Quentin Andrews is dead. As a surprise to many not only in Cherringham, he was quite wealthy and has left a large fortune. Sarah’s father is astonished, obviously he hardly knew anything about his chess mate who pretended to work as an inventor of crossword puzzles. When the deceased’s will is read, the very last puzzle is opened: whoever of the four potential heirs – his brother, his ex-lover, his carer and an old friend – can solve it, will get all the money. Since Quentin Andrews was already 89 years old and suffered from heart weakness, the attack does not raise suspicion first, but when Sarah and Jack dig a bit deeper into Quentin’s life and the four heirs, the death becomes more and more suspicious.The 15th episode of the cosy crime series can come up with a good story and a surprisingly exciting plot. I have read the previous episodes but after some time, they became more and more repetitive and could not really entertain me anymore. Yet, I had some waiting time today and picked another one which could fulfil what I expect from such a quick cosy crime novel: some twists and turns in the plot, yet a straightforward solution which does not leave any questions unanswered and some typical English-village-ingredients. All in all, I could cover the waiting time in quite a pleasurable way.
