Overview

Everyone--including mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance--loves Arsenic and Old Lace.  But something wicked is poisoned a local summer stock production as cast members stab each other in the back and props are sabotaged.  Worst of all, the star, aging Hollywood beach-blanket hunk Shane Petree, butchers his lines--while getting top billing in bed with wives and teenage daughters around town.  No wonder somebody wants to draw his final curtain.  With a little help from Miss Marple, Poirot, and Agatha the Bookstore Cat, a pompous prosecutor tries to pin a murder on Max, Annie's own leading man.  Unless Annie can prove her darling's innocence, their wedding date's off!  Invoking the tried-and-true methods of her favorite literary sleuths, Annie snoops around the greasepaint and glitter of the show-stopper scene if she doesn't watch it, because theatrical murderers never play fair.

"Arsenic and Old Lace" may be everybody's favorite play, but someone on Broward Rock has spotted its murderous potential. When the corpses on stage in the local amateur production become real ones, bookshop owner Annie Laurance must move fast to save her fiance, Max, from a murder charge. Original.

    Enjoyable but not the best

    Bad things happen and of course Annie is implicated. Interesting plot but she drags the ending out. It made me think she got paid by the page. It's a good beach read or something to keep you busy on a rainy weekend.
