SYNOPSIS
DEATH STEALS THE SHOW
by JOHN BUDE

When Kurt Goldmayer's latest "musical" opens at a South-Coast theatre, prior to its West End run, death stalks in the wings. One night Adrienne Daw, his leading lady, vanishes from her dressing-room after the show. Kurt calls in the local police and they, in turn, rope in Detective-Inspector Meredith of the Yard. His investigations lead to the tragic discovery that Adrienne has been murdered. But how and by whom? With his usual energy, efficiency and well - reasoned deductions Meredith sets out to solve the problem. With its authentic theatrical setting, lively characterisation and fast-moving plot, John Bude's new mystery novel throws out a challenge to his readers— Guess Who? Guess How?
