Blackstone and the Stage of Death

By Sally Spencer

On the face of it, this is the simplest murder Blackstone has ever had to solve. The entire audience at the George Theatre saw Charlotte Devaraux stab William Kirkpatrick with a fake dagger. Then they gasped in shock when they realised this would be his final curtain call…

But how did the murderer exchange the fake dagger for a real one? How was it laced with deadly poison? And who is the mysterious little old man who keeps appearing in the wings of the investigation?

Assisted by the amiable Sergeant Patterson, Blackstone follows the trail of the killer from the theatre to the world of the Victorian freak show, then into the depths of a lunatic asylum. And though he does not know it, another murder is now brewing. Will he find this killer in time?

With a cast of unusual suspects, all of which have the motive and the wherewithal to commit the crime, Blackstone struggles to find which is truth and which is merely part of the act.
