For the sake of a Broadway hit, Mr. and Mrs. North search for a playboy's killer Naomi Shaw has taken the stage in Around the Corner one hundred times. And with every performance, she has brought the audience to tears. But while she's an angel onstage, she's rather harder to like once the curtain drops. Nevertheless, the play is a hit. The critics are awed, the crowds are lively, the producers are happy, and Around the Corner could run forever—as long as it has its star. At the celebration following the hundredth performance, Naomi announces she's going to marry one of the show's backers, slimy playboy Bradley Fitch. He's rich enough that Naomi will never have to act again, which means that Around the Corner will die as soon as their vows are read. But when someone murders Bradley in order to stop the wedding, it falls to Pamela and Jerry North to find the killer and ensure that the show will go on.Death of an Angel is the 20th book in the Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
