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.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Cosham] reads Brett’s work with pleasant English charm in a staccato rhythm reminiscent of Cary Grant.”  Today’s Librarian 
“[Ralph Cosham] does a great job. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Adeptly narrated by [Ralph Cosham], this short mystery moves nimbly. [Cosham’s] deep voice maneuvers characters deftly and allows for individuation of the dramatic lead, Christopher Milton; his leading lady; and others behind the set who may be suspects.” AudioFile
“A new Simon Brett is an event for mystery fans.” P. D. James
