Overview

Timing is everything. When Chicago actress Morgan Taylor's old theater friend calls, pleading with Morgan to fill in for a cast member aboard a cruise ship, Morgan has just finished a long, exhausting run in "Rent". She is also suffering through one of the coldest winters in Chicago history. Let's see -- blinding blizzards and bitter cold, or palm trees and sun-warmed sand? Hmmmmm. Morgan hops the next plane to the Port of Miami.

As the ship sails, Morgan learns the girl she's replacing died 'suddenly' -- "murdered" whisper some. And between rehearsals, wardrobe fittings and performances, Morgan's own safety is threatened. Not everyone, it seems, is happy she joined the cast. Then another performer goes missing and this time there is no question the girl was murdered.

"Sussman and Avidon deliver an amazingly fresh and entertaining puzzle sure to have mystery fans crying "Encore!" once again."

Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly
"Wisecracking Chicago actress Morgan Taylor grabs center stage and never lets go..."
Library Journal
"...light and finely rendered..."
Contra Costa Times
...characters are strong and interesting, plotting is credible and the atmosphere of the ship provides an added dimension. I enjoyed the strong Chicago setting of this series' debut [AUDITION FOR MURDER] but am happy to see that this book is a class act even when it's on the road.
Books in Motion
It's a juicy backstage mystery peopled with show-biz eccentrics and dubious characters.
