The Knickerbocker Theater is to reopen with a star-studded misical, but murder threatens to derail the show. A Capt. Bill Donovan police procedural detective -- a great read if you enjoy old-fashioned detective work by a very likable protagonist.
The historic old Knickerbocker Theater is about to reopen with a star-studded musical extravaganza -- but murder threatens to derail the show, brainchild of famed producer Sir John Holland. -- The list of suspects is long, but the most illogical one is Milos the Magnificent, long dead and buried in the basement of the Knickerbocker. The old vaudevillian's crossbow is the weapon of choice for the killer, and the bodies are falling faster than the curtain on a bad production.
Operating with the logic that ghosts don't commit murder, Captain Bill Donovan hits the Great White Way in search of a killer who's prepared to bring down the house with his own carefully orchestrated production: death, the musical.
