Eve may always investigate murder, but they aren’t usually ones that she witnessed herself.

While watching a wonderful play written by Agatha Christie one of the actors is murdered. It only takes seconds for Eve to realize that the actors are no longer acting – though the rest of the audience takes a bit longer. It’s astonishing that though she knows who actually killed Eve still must search for the murderer – the prop knife had been replaced with a real knife.

What is more astonishing to Eve is that even she believes that the actor deserved to die. He truly was a reprehensible person. No redeeming qualities. How can you narrow the pool when everyone hated the man enough to kill him?

I loved the book! I couldn’t put it down. This is an odd book for the series. You really see Eve’s emotional side. She’s really very mellow for this book.

My favorite part was when she was in a bad mood and Peabody cheers her with sarcasm. You just can’t beat their byplay!!

I won’t say much more – you just really need to read it!

  1. I'm reading this now!!! I'm barely to page 100, but it is rather gripping already. Not just the murder mystery… but all the relationship stuff. Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNab, Charles… very interesting stuff. I love Eve and Peabody! They crack me up.

  2. Eve & Peabody really do make the book! I LOVE how much personality Peabody has gotten. It's terrific!!
