Sicken and so die. A Charles Paris Mystery.

Sicken and So Die - Simon Brett. If you're like me, and like your crime stories to be a lighthearted challenge rather than a gore fest, then Simon Brett's oeuvre is for you. Charles Paris, the down at heel actor is no Poirot: he stumbles to a solution, taking the reader with him every step of the way. Then, just when one is convinced as to the perpetrator of this heinous act, there's a swerve and the culprit is a rank outsider. I have read most of this series now, and one would expect that I would have twigged this by now.

Nausea lurked in the cobwebs at the bottom of his throat. Why did he do it? Convivial drinking. with other people was at least fun while it was happening; drinking alone was nothing more nor less than self-punishment. There was an empty stillness in the flat. He glanced at his watch. After ten. God knows what time he’d fallen into bed. He didn’t want to move, but his straining bladder insisted. Being upright didn’t help the headache.
Simon Brett writes great mysteries becuase the parts that don't deal with the mystery could easily make a good book . Still, Sicken and So Die makes for a very entertaining read. I would also recommend Murder Unprompted and Star Trap, two earlier, better Charles Paris mysteries.
Simon Brett writes great mysteries becuase the parts that don't deal with the mystery could easily make a good book on their own. I think these are the best sorts of mysteries, just like, say, Singin' in the Rain is a great movie becuase it's great even without all the singing and dancing. Sicken and So Die does an excellent job as a novel about the theatre, but the mystery is just as important, and it's not that well done this time. One only hopes that Simon Brett writes a Charles Paris mystery that leaves the mystery out.
Simon Brett's oldest and most beloved character, Charles Paris, is back. Paris, the often out-of-work actor, has a good part, for a change, playing Sir Toby Belch in a summer festival production of Twelfth Night. But when the director takes ill and then Paris' friend in the production is the apparent victim of intentional food poisoning meant for Paris, it's not long until the bodies start to turn up. Paris is forced to deal not only with a wild young director whose idea of Shakespeare the bard himself would hate, but with a murderer in the production as well
