Review: STAGE FRIGHT by J.J. Murphy (novella)

Somebody was shot, and it wasn’t part of the play. Right away it’s a case for Dorothy Parker.

Every member of the crew is a suspect as Dorothy tries to figure out who would want to kill the lead actor in front of a live audience.

Dorothy’s snarky humor was a delight while her keen observational skills and in-depth knowledge of the theater made her an instrumental asset to the case. Refreshed with a 1920’s dialogue, the story navigates the reader through the clues of this perplexing case. Apparently everyone had a motive. But who did it?

A quick, enjoyable mystery read! Of course, no one can solve a crime in five minutes. It was REALLY short.

My rating: 3 stars
