Stage Fright: An Algonquin Round Table Mini-Mystery by J. J. Murphy

[Short Story]
Dorothy Parker must review a new Broadway play starring Alexander Woollcott—but the only thing that might liven up this night’s drama is a dead body.

When Woollcott fires a fake gun during the play, a real bullet shoots out, and famous actor Malcolm Molehill drops to the stage—perhaps his final act. It’s no mystery that Woollcott shot Molehill. But who loaded the real bullet in the fake gun? Dorothy Parker must use her considerable cunning and craftiness to find the truth among a real cast of characters, each of whom has a convincing motive for burying Molehill or framing Woollcott.

This sets the stage for a hilarious romp and a perplexing mystery that puts Dorothy’s wit and wisecracks in the spotlight.

Somebody was shot, and it wasn’t part of the play. Right away it’s a case for Dorothy Parker. Every member of the crew is a suspect as Dorothy tries to figure out who would want to kill the lead actor in front of a live audience. Dorothy’s snarky humor was a delight while her keen observational skills and in-depth knowledge of the theater made her an instrumental asset to the case. Refreshed with a 1920’s dialogue, the story navigates the reader through the clues of this perplexing case. Apparently everyone had a motive. But who did it? A quick, enjoyable mystery read! Of course, no one can solve a crime in five minutes. It was REALLY short.
