Smart woman, interesting mystery.
Sam Jones is a rather "different heroine", but I really enjoy this series.
A chance meetin in a fetish club with anon friend from art school leads to a new scupting job for Sam Jones creating a series of mobiles for an avant garde production of a midsummers night's dream. Plunged into the strange world of theater, Sam mingles with a bizarre, vexing but often amusing cast of characters, including the appalling Helen, the girlfriend of Sam;s best friend Janey, and Hugh the enigmatic and acidly humorous actor wit a wry peter wimsey drawl and a perfectly shaped bottom. After a long string of disappointing boyfriends, Sam may have finally met her match with Hugo. Now if she can only figure out whether or not he's gay!.
This pressing state of affairs is overshadowed only by the discovery of a decomposing body in the basement beneath the theater. Sam, who's unfortunately grown accustomed to stumbling across dead bodies, is hardly fazed, but the mysterious deaths increase and a practical joker starts to sabotage performances of the play. Sam realizes that unless the killer is caught, she may be facing her own curtain call
