The Victoriana is a lovely old theatre in the Frank Matcham style. It is an old music hall (with a reputed ghost) and is situated opposite the pier in the seaside town of Fairbourne on the south coast of England. During the season of 1955 one of the actors is murdered in his dressing room sometime between the matinee and the evening performance. Suspicion falls on each of the other actors and actresses in the small company, as well as on the murdered man's wife, who is more famous than her husband. Then there are the other staff in the theatre, the producer, the electricians, and the cleaners. Or did someone from an area of his life outside the theatre gain access and kill him? Inspector Carding and Sergeant George Binns are investigating. The absence of an obvious motive for the murder makes their task far more difficult, as does the fact that the main suspects are all actors and actresses, used to playing a part. The tension builds up as secrets are gradually revealed, and the small cast become suspicious of each other. Yet to leave before the season finishes will point the finger at the murderer.

About the Author

Joan M Moules is the author of over thirty books both fiction and non-fiction.
She also writes short stories and articles, runs occasional day workshops and is passionate about her writing. In junior school her desk was next to a window which looked across to a railway line and she was always in trouble for gazing across to the trains and making up stories about where the people on them were going instead of concentrating on what the teacher was saying. Eventually she was moved to the other side of the room where she couldn't see them... Some of her other interests, not in any special order, include reading, walking by the seashore, theatre, music hall, Victorian and Edwardian jewellery, cats and being with her family and friends. She is a member of The Society of Women Writers' and Journalists, Society of Authors, The Crime Writers Association and The Deadly Dames.
