London, 1932. Kitchen maid, Joan Hart, and lady's maid, Verity Hunter, intend to enjoy their trip to the theatre, especially as Verity's uncle Tommy is one of the leading men in the play. Unfortunately, Act Two of the play is curtailed when the lights come up in the interval, and the girls realise a man has been stabbed to death almost under their very noses. The case reunites the servant sleuths with their old ally, Detective Inspector Marks, and whilst the girls do their best to solve the case whilst keeping their jobs, the glitter and glamour of the theatre may prove to be as dangerous as any battlefield... Death at the Theatre is the second book in the historical mystery series, Miss Hart and Miss Hunter Investigate, from crime writer Celina Grace, author of the bestselling Kate Redman Mysteries and The Asharton Manor Mysteries. Praise for the series from Amazon and Goodreads reviewers: "Thoroughly enjoyed this read. I've been waiting for this story since the first of the Asharton novellas was published and I am very glad to see more of Joan and Verity. I think they are a great mystery team. Smart and active, but in a believable way. You don't ever wonder how they could do what they do within the confines of their social roles and their "real" jobs are never thrown to the side." "Celina makes her characters someone you care about. I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes mysteries, especially period mysteries." " I love her writing style. This book does not disappoint. A great mix of mystery, humor and wonderful characters. All in a beautiful Manor. Very enjoyable read." "An intriguing, well written mystery set in the 1930s which will keep you glued until the last page!"

About the Author

Celina Grace was born sometime towards the end of the last century and wrote her first story, The Blue Ruby, at the age of seven.

She lives in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath in the UK.
