Murder has never been such fun…
…pity the corpse never saw the joke
The dead body of a theatrical agent
A missing book worth a fortune
Five comedians in the frame for murder
There’s trouble for crime reporter Colin Crampton when theatrical agent Daniel Bernstein turns up murdered. Colin discovers that any of five comedians competing for the chance to appear on a top TV show could be behind the killing.
As Colin and his feisty girlfriend Shirley Goldsmith investigate, they encounter a cast of colourful characters – identical twin gangsters, an Irishman who lives underground, and a failed magician’s assistant. And it’s not long before their own lives are in peril as they battle to crack a code that could lead to a fortune.
“Humour, clever plotting, a warm sense of nostalgia and – above all – an abundance of charm.”
