About this title


An Australian scientist confronts a moral dilemma that forces him to oppose world powers willing to sacrifice Third World lives--and his--to maintain the international balance of trade

From Library Journal:

During the 1970 summer season of the Rigby Repertory Theater in Yorkshire, Algernon Jagat, a very handsome Indian playing the role of Claudius, unwittingly drinks poison on stage and dies. Fellow theater workers who stand out as suspects include Timothy Selkirk, the current youth in Jagat's life. The repercussions of Selkirk's ancillary involvement incite amazing national attention. Detective Harold Winterkill of nearby Scarborough handles the fairly straightforward case with help from talented John Silk, manager of the theater. A low-key, lightweight procedural with rural flavor, picturesque characters, and narrative wit. REK
