Just to say you were sorry, just to repent. The voice put a very nasty emphasis on the word repent as if describing a most unpleasant activity

For Fred and Simone and Laverstock where Jemima Shore was. 'And with the morning cool repentance came. Just to say you were sorry, just to repent. The voice put a very nasty emphasis on the word repent as if describing a most unpleasant activity. Was it going to be like the song then, his song, cool, oh so coo-ool repentance?' The person picked up a long-stemmed flower and pretended to use it as a microphone: then the voice crooned the last four words slowly, mockingly, gloatingly.

Or rather, when it was discussed in the light of what happened later, everyone seemed to have a different version of how the idea arose. The Megalith contingent - Jemima, Cherry, Guthrie Carlyle. as well as Spike Thompson - received their invitations from Nat Fitzwilliam. This left Jemima with the distinct impression, confirmed by Guthrie, that the initiative had come from Nat in the first place. Unquestionably Nat regarded the occasion as yet another opportunity for exercising his directorial powers.

Celebrated actress Christabel Cartwright trades her country house, its staff of servants, and her husband for a reckless affair.

She also thought she could resume her career--her director was delighted, and so was Megalith Television. But one person in Christabel's circle had doubts.

What happens next is murder, and it brings Jemima Shore, the author's elegant alter ego, into the fray. She trails her man (or is it woman?) through the thickets of human emotion.

"Glorious fun...the ending is genuinely surprising." (The Spectator)

It was so good my 60# puppy ate the back pages before I finished it. I did learn 'who done it' however by piecing the pages together that he did not swallow.

Frasier's novels are always a wonderful look back in time to the 70s and early 80s. If you like Barbara Pym, you will like this. (I like both).

Jemima Shore Investigator goes to Larminster to cover the small local theater festival held in that town by the sea. What seems like it will be a boring and standard assignment, turns into a free-for-all as the return of an infamous local actress to the stage sets tempers flaring. Murder follows murder as Jemima begins to have her own ideas about who is to blame.

It is really a mark of how good Fraser is as a detective writer that I really enjoyed this book despite the unbelievable ending. While not as good as some of the other Fraser novels, the characters still have depth and the writing has a fine and subtle quality well above that of most detective fiction novels. If you have not read Fraser before, I would begin with Quiet as a Nun, not Cool Repentance. If already a Fraser fan, it is still enjoyable, even when it does not deserve to be.

A previous reviewer has said that Cool Repentance is not the best in the Jemima Shore series.For me it was. It was my first Antonia Fraser book, and I loved it. I read a few others in the series, but Cool Repentance is still the one I enjoyed most.
