    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A Catskills resort's production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet takes a wickedly ironic turn when the leading lady, Lauren Richmond, is first poisoned and then stabbed. Who would extinguish the life of such a beautiful young thespian? Who wouldn't? Seems like just about everyone had a motive to pull the ropes on her final curtain call"--Dust jacket flap.

Fortysomething Charlotte Fairfax works as a costume designer for the Catskills Shakespeare Theater Company, located at the now-shabby Jacobs Grand Hotel. As rehearsals begin, she is trying hard to avoid Brian Prentice, who is the star of this summer's productions. Brian, a once-promising actor, dumped Charlotte for the daughter of an earl. When the actress who is to play Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Lauren Richmond, is found dead, Charlotte's intern, Aaron Jacobs, nephew of the hotel's owner, is one of the suspects. Other suspects include Brian, who was having an affair with Lauren; Brian's wife, Lady Deborah; and the owner of the hotel. Although Charlotte's current boyfriend, Walkers Ridge Chief of Police Ray Nicholson, is careful not to share details of the investigation, Charlotte and Aaron work to solve the crime on their own. Sympathetic, well-drawn characters and fascinating details on Shakespeare's plays and costume design add to what is a satisfying mystery. Pair this one with Jill Paton Walsh's The Bad Quarto (2007).

What could have more charm than a cozy set in the Catskills? Why, a cozy about a Shakespearean theater company at a vintage resort in the Catskills, of course. This appealing series launch from Agatha Award–finalist Duncan is perfectly accessorized with a has-been British actor, Brian Prentice; his imposing wife, Lady Deborah; and costume mistress Charlotte Fairfax, who turns amateur sleuth after her college-age assistant, Aaron Jacobs, becomes the chief suspect in the poisoning and fatal stabbing of Lauren Richmond, the theater company's ingenue. Could the real killer be Prentice, with whom Charlotte shares a complicated history? Or Lady Deborah? Or maybe it's young Aaron after all? Amid the bucolic backdrop of springtime in upstate New York, Duncan (The Cold Light of Mourning and five other Penny Brannigan mysteries) drops just enough clues and red herrings to keep the reader guessing whodunit to the end.
