Overview

In the final book of the Jocelyn O’Roarke series, a middle-aged actor falls to his death during a preview night under mysterious circumstances, and it’s up to Jocelyn to find the culprit
In theater, the actors who play Peter Pan are young, sprightly, and almost always female. So you can imagine the surprise of actress and sometimes-detective Jocelyn “Josh” O’Roarke when middle-aged director Rich Rafelson decides to step into the harness of the boy who never wanted to grow up for a regional production of Peter Pan. Even more surprising is Rich’s sudden death, caused by a fall from the stage during an ill-advised curtain call. Josh’s friends who had been in charge of the harness and stage carpentry are now prime suspects, and she has to clear their names. Complicating things are rival former lovers battling not only for Josh’s affections, but for the resolution to the case. But as Josh gets closer to the truth, a fairy tale ending seems ever farther away . . . Who Dropped Peter Pan? is the sixth and final book in the Jocelyn O’Roarke mystery series, which begins with Murder on Cue and First Hit of the Season.

Meet the Author

Jane Dentinger was born and raised in Rochester, New York. She graduated magna cum laude from Ithaca College with a BFA in theatre, then moved to Manhattan, where she still resides. After making her stage debut in Joe Papp’s production of Pericles at the Delacorte Theatre, she acted off Broadway in All My Sons at the Roundabout Theatre and in Jack Heifner’s Vanities for ages.
By the time Vanities finally closed, there were a lot of people she wanted to kill, and hence, she wrote her debut mystery, Murder on Cue, on a grant of sorts from the New York State Department of Labor. It was the first of six novels featuring actress Jocelyn O’Roarke, whom the New Yorker dubbed “an artsy Philip Marlowe.”
While writing her novels, Dentinger managed Murder Ink, a preeminent mystery bookstore in New York City, for eight years. In October of 1999, Dentinger became senior editor of the Mystery Guild Book Club. In 2005, she was made editor in chief, a position she held until December, 2013.
