Last Train to London is the fifth novelette in Neil Richards and Matthew Costello’s Cherringham series. Set in fictional Cherringham, England, in the Cotswolds, it features Sarah Edwards, English single-mother and web designer, and Jack Brennan, American ex-NYPD detective, as they solve murders and other assorted crimes that pop-up in the small town.

Puppeteer Otto Brendl, who performs the annual Punch-and-Judy show for the town is found dead of an apparent heart attack. When his valuable puppets turn up missing, and Jack recalls a strange tattoo on Otto, he soon realizes that Otto’s death may not have been from natural causes and that Otto may not have been who he claimed to be.

I stumbled across the Cherringham Cosy Crime series on sale on Audible, and since I enjoy British mysteries, I purchased the first six novelettes, which were originally released in 2014. The mysteries are well-written and well-plotted. Being a novelette, the story does not have room for a lot of character development, but the authors manage to let us get to know Sarah and Jack as a little of their lives are touched on in each episode. Neil Dudgeon, of Midsomer Murders, does a decent job with the narration.

I will likely seek out additional installments of this series as they are fun to listen to and are only about 2.5 hours long. ( )
