9780060501006: A Midsummer Night's Scream (Jane Jeffry Mysteries, No. 15)

Jane Jeffry has a new hobby: the theater––specifically, a rundown theater that close pal Shelly and her husband have donated to a local college drama department. Jane has graciously agreed to lend her taste buds to the college's newest production, helping Shelly judge prospective caterers who will be feeding the actors. But soon she's drawn deeper into the real life drama surrounding the play than she ever hoped or anticipated.

The cast is embroiled in petty, off–stage jealousies, ego trips and power struggles, all of which are further fueled by the clueless, blowhard director. Even the presence of two aging professional thespians––a lecherous old boozer and his genteel, seriously gifted wife––fails to bring a sense of decorum to this train wreck of a production. And the plot takes a decidedly darker turn when a particularly rebellious young performer exits stage left––permanently––courtesy of a head–bashing killer! Now Jane and Shelly have their own roles to play in this twisted, true life theatrical where each member of the dramatis personae has a make–up case full of secrets, masks and motives.

About the Author:

Jill Churchill has won the Agatha and Macavity Mystery Readers awards and was nominated for an Anthony Award for her bestselling Jane Jeffry series. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed Grace and Favor mysteries and lives in the Midwest.

From AudioFile:

Jane is a single mom and amateur sleuth. Jane's friend, Shelley, has devised a way to try out new caterers for her large soirees by having them cater small meals at the theater her husband donated to the local college. As the two women sit on the sidelines at a play rehearsal, a cast member is found dead. Naturally, they spring into action. Susan Ericksen lets the listener know the difference between the heroes and the villains through the tone of her voice, perhaps too much so. As narrator, she shows little sympathy for any character, and because she focuses on the unpleasant side of each, she loses the plot. J.P.
