I did read this book and found it very interesting. I am fond of "cat sleuth" mysteries, although this differs somewhat from that genre. Nevertheless, cats do hold a special role in this and other "Alice Nestleton" mysteries.
As are the other Lydia Adamson books I've read, this one is fun, especially you are a cat and/or theater buff who enjoys mysteries. Full of colorful characters, interesting murders, and enjoyable plots.
