Bill Nighy stars as Charles Paris with Martine McCutcheon as Jodie Ricks in this BBC Radio 4 comedy detective drama.
Who killed Marcus Steen, the theatrical tycoon with a fortune to leave to his young mistress Jacqui? And who killed Bill Sweet, the shady blackmailer with a supply of compromising photographs? Charles Paris, a middle-aged actor addicted to booze and women, decides to investigate by assuming a variety of roles, among them that of the mythical Detective Sergeant McWhirter. But, as Paris is about to discover only too painfully, impersonating a police officer is never a good idea.

A flawed Hero23 October 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
In modern literature, or indeed in modern entertainments, every hero must have a flaw. Charles Paris' flaw is alcoholism. Because this hits close to home, it is hard for me to think of his flaw as humorous. On the other hand, Simon Brett's greatest strength as an author is that he can make humiliation, disastrous choices and violence very funny. Cast in Order of Disappearance was Brett's first work featuring the Charles Paris, an occasionally successful actor and it is one of the best in the long-running series, all of which feature an insider's view of life (and death) in the British theater (theatre).

A nice beginning of an amateur sleuth-professional actor career even if most of the characters are absolutely incorrect politically and morally. Personally I like the Feathering Mysteries by the same author more but plan to proceed reading about Charles Paris too.
Good Story, Interesting Characters31 July 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Fun story. The type of mystery that keeps you entertained and engaged without bringing on the clouds of doom. No gore. Good quality writing that doesn't make you wince... which is too common a feature in the mystery genre.
