Drew, Madeline, & Madeline's Aunt Ruth are in the process of making arrangements for Drew & Madeline's wedding when they are asked to help the police investigate the murder of a local Thespian & Owner of the theater where Gilbert & Sullivan Pirates of Penzance is being put on.

The main suspect is Fleur Landis, the former leading lady & siren, now wife of Drew's business manager... Fluer was also once the paramour of Drew (whom she unceremoniously dumped) when he was much younger.

Both Mr. Landis & Fleur beg Drew's assistance in clearing Fleur from murder charges.... This causes problems w/ Madeline, who is near insanely jealous of Fleur's past & now current relationship w/ Drew, no matter that Drew now finds her physically alluring but otherwise completely distasteful.

There are two other murders in the theater; the young Tess (Wardrobe Mistress & rehearsal stand-in) and the business manager.... when Fleur's young son is almost poisoned by eating Fleur's chocolate the case turns.

I did not like many of the characters: - 1 star and I particularly did not like Madeline's jealousy induced histrionics (it ruined her character for me), hence -1 more star. Otherwise this was a pretty good story with quite a few references to Agatha Christie & Dorothy L. Sayers
