Audition for Murder

(1999)
(The first book in the Morgan Taylor Mystery series)
A novel by

 

"A delight... Clever plotting, vividly observed milieu, and sparkling dialogue sprinkled with insightful bits about the world of the theatre and its characters."
Robert Campbell


Welcome to the world of Morgan Taylor, a thritysomething struggling actress who is dying for a juicy role in a prestigious revival on the Chicago stage. She hasn't had a role in months, and the chance to work with the esteemed director Martin Wexler has her practically salivating.

Though Morgan shows up right on time for the audition, Lily London, her assigned auditioning partner and a cantankerous older woman Morgan has never really liked, seems to have forgotten. Morgan gets more and more anxious until it seems that nothing can salvage this chance. Her mood is shot, her nerves are frazzled, she's got the stage manager for an auditioning partner. When it's all over, of course, Morgan finally comes across Lily--dead, lying cold on the floor of the theater bathroom....

The character of Morgan Taylor is fresh and thoroughly entertaining; she's as dramatic as the most talented actresses and as shrewd as the most calculating investigator--in short, a perfect amateur sleuth. Her debut, Audition for Murder, peopled by a delightful supporting cast, including Morgan's best friend, Beth, who suffers from MS, and Beth's finicky dog, Hamlet, is one of those rare mysteries that delivers a wonderfully written story and an engaging, suspenseful puzzle.
