Murder Offstage

(The ninth book in the Charles Bentley Mystery series)
A Novella by

Retired English professor Charles Bentley is pressured into becoming assistant director of the Opal College fall theater production. This means he must work with the director, the rather intimidating Lorelei Brunson. Everything is going quite well until the person playing the lead in the play entitled The Rake's Last Gasp is murdered outside the theater. This leaves Charles with two problems. He must help his wife, who is Opalsville's chief of police, solve the case, and he must act because Lorelei insists that he take on the role of the rake in the play. Not having acted since his college days, Charles is reluctant to take the part, but he soon finds himself becoming somewhat excited at the prospect. But as he delves deeper into the murder case, he begins to fear that he may quickly become the second rake to gasp his last.
