It's Eastertime, and a small-town musical production has sparked a storm of controversy. Fading star Wayne Larner considers his role a comeback opportunity. The locals consider it an outrage. Larner is a disreputable rake--addicted to fast cars and faster women. When Larner dies before setting foot on stage, no one in town is particularly upset about it. No one except Inspector Kenworthy, who considers murder an outrage, too.

With a pipe in his hand and a trick or two up his sleeve, Inspector Kenworthy is Scotland Yard's consummate master of investigation. Big, bearish, and sometimes bullying, he makes his sergeants quake and culprits tremble--for Kenworthy's keen eye for spotting "whodunnit" lets no one get away with murder.

A very safe bet for fans of the literate English Village genre.
