Overview

Stagestruck (Peter Diamond Series #11) by Peter Lovesey

Pop diva, Clarion Calhoun, has packed the house with a celebrity appearance in Bath's Theatre Royal production of I Am a Camera.  But within moments of her much-anticipated onstage appearance, she's pulled out of character as she screams and claws at her face. 

When tainted stage makeup is found to have caused the disfiguring burn, fingers point to her makeup artist.  Detective Peter Diamond investigates when the makeup artist is found dead, pushed from a catwalk far above the stage.  As Diamond digs deeper, he uncovers rivalries among the cast and crew and is forced to confront his own mysterious and deep-seated theatre phobia to find the killer.

This rather lightweight murder mystery has its charms, but the story flows unevenly and at many points is in danger of losing the reader's interest. Well, my interest. I found it ironic that the author would make the main character so blatantly homophobic, calling f names to characters that he created. And he certainly seemed to know what he was creating. The gratuitous addition of a pedophile was a waste of print. All in all, a story like this does not carry the weight of a serious murder mystery, but is more of a parlor game as the author, who holds all of the cards, lets you in on one after the other, then reveals that the queen of hearts has been up his sleeve all along.
