I was engaged quickly in this new story of creating live murder mystery theatre. I found myself fascinated with the characters and process. I was also pleasantly surprised that the story ran over several months - not overly strung out, but entertaining and engaging and telling stories within stories. Read this book and prepare to be entertained!

I very much enjoyed this book! It's rare for me to want to read books a 2nd time, but this is one I will read again. Very well done.

All the world's a stage... This is the story of a play that might not be fiction and a reality that might not be fact. The Jerome Barron Players, known as Death Troupe, perform one mystery play a year written specifically for that season's locale; in this case, the Adirondack town of Schuyler Mills. Jack Glynn, the troupe's original writer, quit after his writing partner, Ryan Betancourt stole his girlfriend, but he has agreed to come back for this one engagement, since Ryan has committed suicide, leaving the troupe without a writer. But was it a suicide? And is Jack writing his own death? Who's acting, and who's being played? There were many things about this book I loved - the mystery within a mystery, the idea of a traveling troupe performing plays specific to the host town, the locale and townspeople, the romance, and the fact that I was kept guessing till the end. And there was plenty of action; the cross-county skiing scene was chilling. I've read Mr. O'Neil's Frank Cole / Exile series and enjoyed it very much, but Death Troupe is his best yet. I hope to see it continue as a series.

I just finished DEATH TROUPE, the first Vincent O'Neil book I've read. Based on this story, I will definitely read the others. The book was well-written, face-paced and intriguing, with a mystery that kept me guessing until the end, as it was supposed to. Don't miss this one!
