An impossible murder behind a locked door. Can DCI Oldroyd find the key to the mystery? Lord Redmire's gambling habit has placed him in serious debt. Determined to salvage his fortune by putting Redmire Hall on the map, the aristocrat performs an impossible locked-door illusion on live TV. But as the cameras roll, his spectacular trick goes fatally wrong... Special guest DCI Jim Oldroyd has a front-row seat, but in all his years with the West Riding Police he's never witnessed anything like this. He sees Redmire disappear--and then reappear, dead, with a knife in his back. As Oldroyd and DS Stephanie Johnson soon discover, nearly everyone at the event had a reason to resent the eccentric lord. But how did the murderer get into the locked room--or out, for that matter? When the only other person who knew the secret behind the illusion is brutally silenced, the case begins to look unsolvable. Because as Oldroyd and Johnson know, it's not just a question of who did it and why--but how?… (more)

This is the third, for the moment, the last, in the cozy mystery series featuring DCI Olroyd and his colleague DS Stephanie Johnson. The audio book is well produced and is engaging listening.

Lord Redmire's father was the one who had the locked room trick installed in his house, but once performed, it was forgotten for over 30 years. now his son wants to use the trick to bring tourists to the house.

He invites DCI Oldroyd to be an official witness at the operation of the trick, but that actually has the effect of ensuring that the police are at hand to begin the investigation into Lord Redmire's death.

I certainly hope there are more titles to come in the series. ( )
