Murder Unprompted
by Simon Brett

As understudy to the lead in a West End play, Charles Paris’s thespian and detective skills are called upon once again when the lead is shot dead on stage on the opening night. The suspects range from a jealous wife to a bitter actor who lost his part, from the playwright who heard his beautiful lines twisted to the director who saw his work ruined.


'clever, well paced'
