Another chance to hear the latest Charles paris series. Bill Nighy stars as the actor cum amateur sleuth with a love of the bottle and the female form.

Before long Jodie has confided to Charles that she's the victim of a blackmail scam and things take an even nastier turn when it appears that someone wants Jodie dead.
