OPENING NIGHT

Synopsis

From the leading lady's liaison to the harassment of an aging juvenile lead -- there's never a dull moment at the Vulcan Theatre. But vanity and hysterics, suspicion, jealousy and superstition are upstaged by a death on opening night. Was it really suicide? Or a macabre encore to a long-ago murder in the same backstage room? Scotland Yard's Inspector Alleyn sets to work assembling a cast of suspects for the final curtain.
