Summary

Yorkshire, 1927. Eclipse fever grips the nation, and when beloved theatre star Selina Fellini approaches trusted sleuth Kate Shackleton to accompany her to a viewing party at Giggleswick School Chapel, Kate suspects an ulterior motive. During the eclipse, Selina's friend and costar Billy Moffatt disappears and is later found dead in the chapel grounds. Kate can't help but dig deeper and soon learns that two other members of the theatre troupe died in similarly mysterious circumstances in the past year.

With the help of Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, Kate sets about investigating the deaths - and whether there is a murderer in the company. When Selina's elusive husband, Jarrod, injured in the war and subject to violent mood swings, comes back on the scene, Kate begins to imagine something far deadlier at play and wonders just who will be next to pay the ultimate price for fame....

Great little period details

I loved this story. The author drops in these little snippets of period detail that are delightful.
A jolly good mystery and well read.

An easy and relaxing favourite

This has been my favourite of this series so far. The story seemed to have an originality not always present in some others. But one of the main reasons why I enjoy these books is the fantastic narration by Anne Dover. She really is perfect for these books. Her accent is spot on and the whole thing sounds genuine. Frances Brady’s dialogue is so spontaneous and natural and Anne Dover brings it to life. An easy, relaxing and enjoyable listen.
