Death of a Dancer

By Anthony Litton

The truth is coming to the surface…

Rumours abound in the market town of Estwich when a legendary theatre, The Dolphin, is rediscovered by workmen who are demolishing old warehouses in the area.

The townsfolk thought it had been destroyed over fifty years ago, but it is found intact behind an old wall, heavy panelling and a locked red and gold front door.

Inside the shadows of the theatre, behind the dusty velvet curtains and chipped gilt paint, there is a macabre discovery when the body of a famous dancer, Ariana Kujenikov, is found perfectly preserved in plastic wrapping and suspended above the stage.

The discovery of a man’s body in the theatre leads to a complex investigation for detectives DC Cerian Morgan, DI Calderwood and DS Bulmer.

Tracing back through the history of the wealthy DeLancy family who owned the theatre, the detectives uncover scandal, elopement and hidden rivalries, and the fate of the dancer is finally revealed.

But not before more lives are put in deadly danger.

Death of a Dancer is a crime thriller with a page-turning plot and colourful characters, which will keep you guessing right up to the very end.
