After a near-fatal confrontation with a serial killer, irreverent reporter Alex Bernier is more than happy to cover a nice, dull story on the ongoing, hapless attempts to save a grand old theatre in Gabriel, the college town in upstate New York where she lives. But when the body of a long-vanished actress turns up in the wreckage and high-profile theatre supporters start dying off, Alex finds herself at odds with a strange troupe of suspects. There is a duplicitous former child star and a group of academic wives harbouring nasty secrets, not to mention a vicious mob boss. Again, Alex must play the detective, sorting illusion from deadly truth and, with luck, outwitting a murderer determined to bring an end to her performance.

Saulnier is a writer for the Ithaca Journal and is an associate editor and staff writer for Cornell Magazine. She is also a film commentator on local television.From Publishers Weekly:
In Saulnier's entertaining sixth Alex Bernier adventure (after 2003's Ecstasy), the stubborn, brassy reporter for the Gabriel, N.Y., Monitor gets mixed up in the dispute over the town's once-glorious Starlight Theatre. When socialite Sissy Dillingham, the major force behind the Save Our Starlight group (aka S.O.S.), is brutally murdered, Alex realizes there's far more at stake than rescuing the old place from demolition. As she looks into the theater's past, she discovers a decades-old mystery surrounding the disappearance of ingénue actress Ashley Sinclair, whom creepy Robert Renssellaer, a former child star and the biggest donor to the S.O.S. fund, used to know. As if coming up with fresh and interesting information about the theater weren't difficult enough, Alex must deal with cop boyfriend Brian Cody's ex-wife, who's decided she wants him back, and a rival New York Times reporter, who wants to scoop her story. Despite a savage beating in the parking lot of her favorite Italian eatery to warn her off the investigation, the dogged Alex won't quit until she unravels the surprising truth. Agent, Jimmy Vines. (Apr.)
