First words
I've been putting in a lot of overtime lately trying to picture myself, Winston Marlowe Sherman, at the tender age of thirty-five.
Quotations
Dylan Thomas had been right about that sweet narcissus, I thought. It was indeed a pretty flower, but it didn't last worth piss in the ocean.

Book description
In 1953 Winston Sherman attends a star-studded party in honor of Dylan Thomas at the mansion of an acerbic theater critic, hoping to glean some atmosphere for his mysteries (which he secretly writes under the name of Henrietta Slocum). The party's hilarity is shattered by the theft of the only extant original folio of Webster's "The Duchess of Malfi" - and murder most grisly. Thirty years later the manuscript reappears - along with some guests who made that party a night to remember. This troupe transforms a quiet home into a bawdy house - where murder takes another curtain call. For Winston, life again imitates art as mystery comes home to roose, with a vengeance.
