Description

Charles Paris has landed a role in a lavish West-End musical. The star, one of England's most popuar comedians, is adored by the public but despised in the business. He also seems to be behind some strange happenings backstage, including the rehearsal pianist being shot in the hand and an actor falling and breaking his leg. Why would the star want to sabotage his own show?


The playwright wants to strangle him. The leading lady longs to stab him in the back. The young Lothario looks at him with deadly rage. And unless Charles turns the spotlight on the real behind-the-scenes saboteur before opening night, murder will take top billing.

      • content: A new play is about to open with treachery and ruination heralding detective Charles Paris to the scene. Hired to act and sleuth, Paris investigates on location. Adeptly narrated by Geoffrey Howard, this short mystery moves nimbly. Howard's deep voice manuevers characters deftly and allows for individuation of the dramatic lead, Christopher Milton; his leading lady; and others behind the set who may be suspects. B.J.L.
