Bunburry - Episode 1-3

Bastei Entertainment |  Bunburry - A Cosy Crime Series Compilation


Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry. Here, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder - laced with a welcome dose of humour.

This compilation contains episodes 1-3.

MURDER AT THE MOUSETRAP

Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy. But an accidental death - which may have been no accident - reveals that the heart of England is far from the tranquil backwater he imagined. After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie's late Aunt Augusta. And it is not long before their investigations take an even more dramatic turn ...

A MURDEROUS RIDE

Alfie discovers that he has not only inherited a cottage from his late Aunt Augusta but also a 1950s Jaguar. He is dismayed: for reasons of his own, he no longer drives. Aunt Augusta's best friends, Liz and Marge, persuade him to get behind the wheel again - but that's just the start of his Troubles ...

A TASTE OF MURDER

When a local beef farmer is found dead, Betty Thorndike - vegetarian and Bunburry's only Green Party member - is in the frame. Despite what everyone thinks, Betty is absolutely not Alfie McAlister's girlfriend. But Alfie knows what it's like to be wrongly accused, and enlists the help of his fellow amateur detectives, Liz and Marge, to find out who's responsible. There's just one problem about a farm-based investigation - Alfie's scared of cows ...

Helena Marchmont is a pseudonym of Olga Wojtas, who was born and brought up in Edinburgh. She was encouraged to write by an inspirational English teacher, Iona M. Cameron. Olga won a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award in 2015, has had more than 30 short stories published in magazines and anthologies and recently published her first mystery Miss Blaine's Prefect and the Golden Samovar.

Bunburry - Vorhang auf für einen Mord & Oldtimer sterben jung

beTHRILLED


"Urkomisch, unterhaltsam und sooo cosy ... Macht es euch schon mal auf dem Sofa gemütlich!" (Paolo Primi, Audible-Magazin v. 6.3.2019)

Folge 1: Willkommen in Bunburry! Alfie McAlister - sympathisch, gutaussehend und Selfmade-Millionär - hat in dem malerischen Städtchen in den Cotswolds ein Cottage geerbt. Das kommt wie gerufen, will er London nach einer schlimmen persönlichen Tragödie doch so schnell wie möglich verlassen, um auf andere Gedanken zu kommen. Aber von Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit keine Spur: Kaum in Bunburry angekommen, steckt Alfie schon mitten in einem Mordfall. Denn Liz und Marge, zwei alte Ladys und die besten Freundinnen seiner verstorbenen Tante Augusta, verpflichten ihn kurzerhand dazu, sich mit ihnen auf die Suche nach dem Täter zu machen. Doch dann gibt es einen zweiten Toten und die drei Amateur-Detektive müssen all ihre Schauspielkünste aufbieten, um den wahren Mörder zu entlarven ...

Folge 2: Schon nach kurzer Zeit hat Alfie McAlister in Bunburry eine ganze Reihe netter Leute kennengelernt. Doch damit ist jetzt Schluss: Bei einer unfreiwilligen Spritztour muss der arme Alfie feststellen, dass es eine sehr schlechte Idee ist, es sich mit der örtlichen Polizei in Gestalt von Sergeant Wilson zu verderben. Besonders, da er sich kurz darauf an einem Tatort wiederfindet und der Sergeant überzeugt ist, dass nur Alfie der Mörder sein kann! Jetzt gibt es nur noch eine Möglichkeit: Alfie muss den wahren Mörder selbst aufspüren - und dafür seine schlimmste Angst überwinden ...

Bunburry - Sinners and Saints

Bastei Entertainment | Countryside Mysteries: A Cosy Shorts Series


Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry.

Harold Wilson, police sergeant in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry, loathes Alfie McAlister. Alfie is handsome, popular, a self-made multimillionaire - and worst of all, he and his friends Liz and Marge are much better than the police at catching villains. But Sergeant Wilson loathes one person even more - Bunburry's vicar, Philip Brown - and is thrilled by the chance of locking him up for a local crime. When Reverend Brown refuses to defend himself or produce an alibi, it's up to the Bunburry Triangle to uncover what's going on.

Helena Marchmont is a pseudonym of Olga Wojtas, who was born and brought up in Edinburgh. She was encouraged to write by an inspirational English teacher, Iona M. Cameron. Olga won a Scottish Book Trust New Writers Award in 2015 and recently published her second book in the Miss Blaine mystery series.
