From the leading lady's liaison to the harassment of an aging juvenile lead - there's never a dull moment, darling, at the Vulcan Theatre. But vanity and hysterics, suspicion and superstition, brandy and jealousy, are upstaged by a death on opening night. Was it really suicide? Or a macabre incore to a long-ago murder in the same backstage room? Scotland Yard's Inspector Alleyn sets to work assembling a cast of suspects for the final curtain.

Very good mystery. I'm a fan of Roderick Alleyn. I wish I knew how to pronounce his name.

This is another great Roderick Alleyn mystery. The Alleyn series gets better and better as I read each book. Marsh occasionally takes us to the theater, as in this episode. The characters are very interesting and the suspense lasts to the end.

A classic Alleyn in the theater, through the eyes of a winning protagonist, Martyn. Wonderful details about a play, and a fun (though I guessed the ending) plot.

one of Dame Ngaio's "theatre" novels, first published in 1951. As always, a very entertaining plot, with a rather surprising plot twist. Highly entertaining, literate, a classic Golden Age mystery novel.
