Angie Deacon has a new career, co-owner of Alton Bay, New Hampshire’s community theater. And a new hobby—amateur sleuthing.
Things are going well at the theater...until opening night when the co-star, played by police detective Colby Jarvis, shoots the leading man. Who substituted Jarvis’s real gun for the prop gun? How did they get it from his sock drawer?
As the days pass and Jarvis is put under tight scrutiny, more questions pop up for Angie and Jarvis. Why would anyone want the star dead? By day John is an unassuming nursery owner. Could his murder have anything to do with the fact that he’s trying to breed an as-yet-undiscovered red iris?
