Exit an ambitious actor...

The script of the Unicorn Theatre's new play uncannily echoes a quarrel in the star's dressing room. And the stage drama gets all too real when charming Felix Gardener shoots his blustering rival, Arthur Surbonardier, dead-with a gun Arthur himself loaded with blanks. or did he? How the live bullets got there, and why, make for a convoluted case that pits Inspector Roderick Alleyn against someone who rates an Oscar for a murderously clever performance.

I love the "cozy" mysteries of Ngaio Marsh -- and this is one of my favorites. Alleyn & Fox & Bathgate are an engaging group. And all of Marsh's books transport me back to a world that is so different from today. Although I was born much too late to have known that world myself, her books make me feel like I've been there. If you like earlier 20th century atmosphere, engaging characters, and a good mystery, I highly recommend this book.

Roderick Alleyn, Scotland Yard detective, accepts an invitation to the theatre from Nigel Bathgate, a journalist friend. It turns out to be a case of being in the right place at the right time when I murder is committed on stage in front of him. I always enjoy reading the Golden Age authors and Marsh in particular.
