The world of theatre is a graveyard of hopes and dreams - but someone is adding corpses to the list...
Classic, golden age crime from 'The masters of misdirection' NEW YORK TIMES
'Delicious ... an enormously engaging old-school mystery' BOOKLIST, starred review
Life is far from quiet for Mr and Mrs North. Despite Mr North's attempts to live a peaceful life, Mrs North's constant efforts as an amateur detective give them more than enough excitement - and not a little danger.
So when the wealthy backer of a play is found dead in the seats of a New York theatre, the Norths aren't far behind, led by Mrs North's customary flair for eccentric murders. Alongside Lieutenant William Weigand of the New York Police Department, they'll employ illogical logic and bizarrely tangential suggestions to draw the curtains on a killer.
