Publisher's Summary

"I want you all out, gone, dead, exterminated!" high strung Alex Household had cried out when, after a lifetime of struggle, he lost the starring role in a new play called The Hooded Owl to an actor who couldn't remember his lines. But did that mean that it was Alex who had shot the leading man dead during his climactic speech? Charles Paris, for one, could see many logical suspects: from the devious producer, to the gullible playwright, to the young starlet's overprotective mother. But before our middle-aged actor-drinker-detective could begin his investigation, he was in for a shock: the powers-that-be chose him as the new leading man. Finally, Charles would discover stardom, and what a dead man saw in the last moments of his life!

Critic Reviews

"[An] irresistible roguish actor-sleuth...wicked, biting satire on the show-biz world." (Washington Post Book World)
"No one delivers more pure entertainment. His plots are fresh, his characters are enjoyable, and his wickedly witty view of backstage life is by itself worth the price of admission." (San Diego Union)
