A Decent Interval by Simon Brett Part Three

We discuss chapters 20-26 of A Decent Interval by Simon Brett. With the case solved, how can Charles Paris safely separate himself from the crime? We’ve discovered Charles’ moral compass might not be quite centred, but is his resolution satisfying, and how does Simon Brett’s mystery construction hold up to Knox and Van Dine, as well as Flex’s signature method. We’re joined again by Simon Brett to talk about the evolving field of crime fiction, as well as how he uses ‘superstructures’ to help guide his writing and how inspiration doesn’t necessarily lead to unoriginality.
