About the Book
It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but that you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it.

Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles

Toronto, 1912

A seemingly forgettable evening of second-rate vaudeville entertainment proves lethal when Constable Jasper Forth and reporter Ray DeLuca witness the onstage death of the actor Stephano. Was this the performance of a lifetime or merely opening night of the next intriguing case for Jem DeLuca and Merinda Herringford?

Hiding from Toronto's dreaded Morality Squad in the back alleyway of the theater, Jem and Merinda encounter a mysterious musician who steps out of the shadows to tell them a murder has occurred inside.

Jasper and Ray join the detective duo backstage and begin to interview the rest of the troupe, a veritable casting call of possible suspects, every one of them with more motives than talent. Can Jem and Merinda foil this plot before a fatal encore ensues?

This Herringford and Watts adventure in four acts will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final curtain closes on yet another enthralling whodunit.

My Thoughts

I have come to adore the world that Rachel McMillan has created with Herringford & Watts! Female detectives, turn of the century excitement and discoveries, Toronto, humour, mystery, romance, and so much more! 

My review for this book will remain short since it would be too easy to give too much away. However, I will say that I did enjoy the format of this fun story. Written as an "Adventure in Four Acts" it sets the stage for the readers in a very literal way. It still reads like a regular book, but with Acts and Scenes instead of chapters. Throughout the book there are many beautiful descriptions which make me feel as if I am walking along the streets of Toronto instead of curled up under my blanket. 

As an avid fan of Ms. McMillian's work, I can not recommend this story enough. You will be thrilled to the core with the adventure laid before you. Can you solve the mystery before Jem and Merinda do? Find out for yourself today!
