Less complicated than the plot of the last book in this series but very fiendish; one of those everyone could've done it but no one seems to've done it kind of things. Nice. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345443144, Mass Market Paperback)

Real-life crime has engulfed the domestic life of the Riverside Theatre players. For starters, there’s the violent death of Estelle Bignall, the beautiful, neurotic wife of a well-to-do doctor (and aspiring resident playwright). In truth, suicide seemed more Estelle’s line—especially during the Christmas holidays—but a thief saved her the trouble, stealing all the presents and leaving her bound, gagged, and suffocated.

Instinct tells Detective Chief Inspectors Lloyd and Judy Hill that Estelle’s murder is far more complicated. At the crime scene there are too many footprints, too many fingerprints, too much conflicting evidence—and too many suspects: an elusive burglar, a sinister next-door neighbor, the victim’s secret lover, a scared kid with fresh bruises on his face. But which of them was desperate enough to commit murder?

The new novel from the master of multi-layered, intricately plotted suspense novels that mercilessly tease the reader to the very last page. It's three days before Christmas, and the Malworth Amateur Dramatic Society's rehearsal of Cinderella, scripted by local GP Carl Bignall, is struggling. As the flu bug hits, even Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd and the pregnant Judy Hill are co-opted to take roles. But as the rehearsal is getting under way, the police are entering Carl's house - and discovering the body of his wife Estelle. Why was Carl so late for rehearsals? Why is his neighbour so reluctant to tell the truth about what he witnessed? And why is Dr Denis Leeward, Carl's partner, sitting in his car, slightly bruised and in a state of guilty panic??.… (more)
