Publisher's Summary

In a poisonous cloud of spray, the curtain falls on a drama queen. Little did beloved British actress Mary Bellamy know that she would be done in at her own birthday party - choked by toxic mist from the bottle of Slaypest, a deadly insecticide.
Basking in the glow of her most adoring fans - who all happened to be her most duplicitous enemies - Mary would make her final performance.
When Superintendent Roderick Alleyn arrives, he smells a rat amongst the contemptuous collection of theatre types detained at the party, for this case has the unmistakable scent of murder....

"High-spirited, amusing...neatly contrived from start to finish." (New Statesman)
