    Not worth the time or money.

    I would not recommend this book. It is the worst kind of formula mystery and I could not get through more than fifty pages of it.

    SUSPENSE HEIGHTENED BY VIVID NARRATION

    First rate author Mary Jane Clark not only knows how to craft a spellbinding thriller (Dancing In The Dark) but she's also particularly skilled at drawing authentic female characters. This time out heroine is 34-year-old Caroline Enright, a theatre and film critic for TV's KEY To America. She's recently wed to Nick, father of college-age Meg, who is not too thrilled about her new stepmother. Caroline is also an admirer of Oscar winning actress Belinda Winthrop, which makes her the perfect candidate to cover Belinda's performance at the Warrenstown Summer Playhouse in the Berkshires. Caroline couldn't be more pleased - it's summer in the city (too hot), this will be an opportunity for her to be in a romantic setting with Nick, and maybe if her luck holds out she can even bond with Meg, who has a small part in the play. As it turns out, Caroline is going to need a great deal more than luck. Suddenly Belinda, an actress idolized by millions, disappears and a pair of Meg's friends are killed. Caroline's reportorial skills tell her this is more than coincidence and that in all probability the deaths were not due to any accident. As bucolic and peaceful as Warrenstown is it soon becomes evident that there's a crazy on the loose. But, who and why? Tony nominee Isabel Keating allows suspense to build with her carefully paced narration, and her rich voice adds a vividness not found in the printed word. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke

    Exciting Media Thriller

    What great characters - all involved in an intricately exciting plot that keeps you guessing until the last pages! KEY News' relatively new entertainment correspondent, Caroline Enright, has more than one reason for traveling up to northwest Massachusetts' bucolic Berkshire Mountains. Tony- and Oscar-winning actress Belinda Winthrop is appearing in a Pulitzer-worthy new play at the Warrenstown summer theater festival and Caroline's planning on doing a pull-out-all-the-stops set of on-air reviews. What she doesn't know is that a sociopath is already on the loose: two playhouse interns have been murdered, and a librarian's throat has been cut. So, when Belinda ups and disappears after an opening-night bravura performance, Caroline sets out to investigate. Set against this harrowing backdrop is Caroline's desire to bond with her 'difficult' new stepdaughter who is apprenticing at the theater. Together, they manage to get into the murderer's crosshairs, slated to be victims #4 and 5. Suspects aplenty, believable red herrings, and a behind-the-scenes look at the off- off- off-Broadway theatre world, Lights Out Tonight is the full package. Very fast. And very, very satisfying. Mary Jane Clark has a real winner here!

    S delightful tale

    Thirty-four years old Key News film and theater critic Caroline Enright travels to the Berkshire Mountains to do a piece on the Warrenstown Summer Playhouse in Warrenstown, Massachusetts. Her new spouse Nick will accompany her as Caroline hopes this trip will enable her to find some common ground with her hostile twenty year old stepdaughter Meg, who has a minor role in a play headed by the Oscar-winning actress Belinda Winthrop.----------------- The play opens to rousing accolades from everyone. However, not long afterward, the star vanishes. Unable to resist, Caroline investigates what happened to Belinda and why. As others associated with the production are murdered and the cops fumble, Caroline realizes that the belligerent Meg is on the short list of a serial killer who is ruthless, diabolical and deadly.----------------- The latest Key News investigative thriller (see DANCING IN THE DARK) is that works because of the strong fully developed characters and the serene backdrop that serves as a contrast to the homicides. The story line is filled with twists and red herrings so that Mary Jane Clark keeps her audience alert wondering what will happen next.. Fans will appreciate this wonderful suspense thriller that never decelerates until the final climatic curtain call.-------------- Harriet Klausner
