I say, Ding Dong!
The seductive tones of veteran actor Leslie Phillips provide the narration to the new audiobook edition of Chequered Justice, a novel by Maidstone author John Bartlett.
Mr Phillips, who appeared in three Carry On films and literally dozens of other movies since his first film appearance as a child actor in 1936, has just celebrated his 90th birthday.
He is a personal friend of the author, a former motor racing driver, who lives at Mote Park.
Chequered Justice is based on Mr Bartlett’s own experiences as a WSCC racing driver, and tells the tale of team boss Will Middleton who suddenly finds himself in trouble with the law over an insurance claim which despite its apparent insignificance turns his life upside down.
Mr Bartlett said: “Leslie is great on the book. He does all the voices. It’s fantastic.”
Mr Bartlett has now written a follow-up novel, entitled Dark Horse.
