Murder's the thing in this new entry in the Agatha and Macavity award-winning series featuring single-mom sleuth Jane Jeffry. Jane's best friend, Shelley, and her husband buy a run-down theater, and donate it to the drama department of the local university. Shelley decides she'll try out new caterers for her husband's business on the theater's volunteers. She persuades Jane to come along to help judge. It's inevitable that they get to know the cast and crew of the breezy period mystery. But life soon imitates art and a cast member is found dead. Jane and Shelley, between tasty snacks, speculate about the crime and the cast. The police are convinced it was an accident. Jane and Shelley are sure it isn't, and the perp should pay the price.

Professional reviews

"Jane is a single mom and amateur sleuth. Jane's friend, Shelley, has devised a way to try out new caterers for her large soirees by having them cater small meals at the theater her husband donated to the local college. As the two women sit on the sidelines at a play rehearsal, a cast member is found dead. Naturally, they spring into action. Susan Ericksen lets the listener know the difference between the heroes and the villains through the tone of her voice, perhaps too much so. As narrator, she shows little sympathy for any character, and because she focuses on the unpleasant side of each, she loses the plot. J.P. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
