A Novella by

 
 
Death Plays a Part is the first in a series of historical mysteries by best-selling author Lesley Cookman, set in the changing world of the Edwardian era.

Dorinda Alexander is a former governess who now owns the Alexandria Theatre in the seaside town of Nethergate. Her troupe is rehearsing for a season of music hall performances, a new experience for the theatre - and when mysterious young singer Velda Turner arrives looking for employment Dorinda, impressed by her talent, hires her.

Soon, though, optimism turns to tragedy when a body is found after an apparently motiveless break-in at the theatre. With the local police convinced that the answer to the mystery lies in Dorinda's own past - a cause of much distress to her - the murder seems an impossible task to solve, until an enigmatic Scotland Yard detective shows up...
