Summary

After a long period of "resting", life is looking up for Charles Paris, who has been cast in a new production of Hamlet. But rehearsals are fraught. Ophelia is played by Katrina Selsey, who won the role through a television talent show. Hamlet himself is also played by a reality TV contestant, Jared Root. But when the company reaches the first staging post of their tour, matters get more serious, with one member of the company seriously injured in what appears to be an accident, and another dead. Once again, Charles Paris is forced to don the mantle of amateur detective to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Enjoy this on the go!

Most enjoyable and well read. Good for a journey. The dramatised versions with Bill Nighy are fun but you lose some of the plot with them.

The return of

Charles Paris is a welcome event. I give it four stars but regard it as top of the line for what it is--a genre mystery. Great main character, great setting anud Brett's love show business in all of its manifestations as he gently mocks it shines through as always.

Charles Paris Thespian Detective and Inbiber

This is a current installment in the long-running Charles Paris mysteries featuring the very likable and somewhat hapless aging stage actor. It is written in the first person, the mystery unfolding through the lips and mind of Charles Paris. The characters are roguish and interesting. The plot takes a number of twists. Charles Paris uses no technology, only conversing with various actors in this ill-fated production of Hamlet. I love the sly humor, the self-deprecating nature of Paris, and the odd-ball cast. The conclusion has a moral ambivalence where a somewhat victimized perpetrator gets a break. Great entertainment and a very compact length, nice for commuters like me!
