Did you believe writing was a safe pastime?
It was not the first time best-selling author Sheila Armstrong had died on stage, but it would most certainly be the last. DCI Alex Warren and his girlfriend, DI Sandra McKinnon, return from a short holiday, but hardly manage to step from the plane before they’re called to investigate the suspicious death.
Sheila, a member of Eastfarm Writers, has been stabbed to death on stage during a rehearsal of a play she’d written. Her death mimics the plot. Within hours, Sandra is roped into investigating a separate series of crimes, which appears to be mob-related. As the enquiries run parallel, they struggle to make progress while supporting each other.
But can there be a connection?
This is a stand-alone mystery, and can be enjoyed even if you haven’t read or listened to other books in the series.
