Murder at the Palace 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Murder at the Palace by Margaret Dumas was an intriguing mystery by a "new to me" author. Nora Paige comes to San Francisco from Hollywood to hide out from the paparazzi after her movie-star husband leaves her for his current co-star. She takes over the management of the Palace movie theater for her best friend, Ronni. I liked Nora and found her to be smart, curious and intuitive. The staff at the Palace are quirky individuals who all seem to fit in this historic movie theater. A smoothly paced plot, possibly more than one murder, Columbian money men, a legal marijuana shop nearby and the big question - where do you hide $7 million dollars led me down a twisted path until the reveal. I enjoyed reading the story; but I do have one small thing that bothered me while reading. Whenever Ms. Dumas named a classic film, the title of the film was always followed, in parenthesis, by the year the film was made and the principal cast members. I found this to be distracting. I would rather see this type of information in a list at the beginning of the book rather than it breaking up the story. All in all, a complex mystery with some great characters. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Henery Press via Edelweiss. All of the above opinions are my own.
