Murder in the Title

(1983)
(The ninth book in the Charles Paris series)
A novel by

 
Simon Brett again takes us behind the scenes in a back-stage drama of crime and detection in Murder In The Title. This time it's the world of provincial rep, with an historic theatre threatened with closure by unscrupulous property developers. And the theatre management seems to be digging its own grave: a deplorable choice of current productions; a painfully incompetent director; bizarre accidents happening on stage.

Charles is an amateur detective and a professional actor. As an actor his career is on the way down, with not much further to go. But as a detective he goes from strength to strength. He soon establishes that someone is deliberately sabotaging the company. All this culminates in a spectacular suicide. Or is it murder, as Charles Paris suspects?
