The Warm, Comforting Smell of Grease-Paint tainted by the Cold, Metallic Odour of Blood...

“Sir John Riversley, seated at his dressing table, lay with the upper half of his body sprawled across it; a crimson stain on the back of his shirt, a pool of blood on the white covering of the table.”

On his first visit to his home town in over twenty years, the famous actor-manager, Sir John Riversley, had been about to open in Hamlet at Hatherford’s Theatre Royal but now lay dead - stabbed in the back with a rapier.

In their pursuit of the murderer, Marston, the Chief Constable, and Detective Sergeant Stell uncover long-held grudges against the dead man from townsfolk, a fellow actor, his questionable business manager and an infatuated fan here from Australia...

As suspects accumulate and fall under police scrutiny, the question remains -- who’d had the audacity to commit this wicked act? And in such a limited time-frame?

Joseph Smith Fletcher (1863-1935) was a journalist and author of more than 220 books on a wide variety of subjects, including over 100 detective stories including bibliomysteries, The Yorkshire Moorland Mystery and Who Killed Alfred Snowe?
