Publisher's Summary

Everyone - including mystery bookstore owner Annie Laurance - loves Arsenic and Old Lace. But something wicked has poisoned a local summer stock production, as cast members stab one another in the back and props are sabotaged. Worst of all, the star, aging Hollywood beach-blanket hunk Shane Petree, butchers his lines - while getting top billing in bed with wives and teenage daughters around town. No wonder somebody wants to draw his final curtain.
With a little help from Miss Marple, Poirot, and Agatha the Bookstore Cat, a pompous prosecutor tries to pin a murder on Max, Annie's own leading man. Unless Annie can prove her darling's innocence, their wedding date's off! Invoking the tried-and-true methods of her favorite literary sleuths, Annie snoops around the greasepaint and glitter backstage. But she'll be next to star in a knock-'em-dead show-stopper scene if she doesn't watch it, because theatrical murderers never play fair.

DEADLY PLAYS

What made the experience of listening to Something Wicked the most enjoyable?

THE STORY LINE WAS EXTREMLY WELL DONE.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

NO, IT WAS ONE I COULD STOP AND RESTART AND BE QUITE AWARE OF WHERE I LEFT OFF; HAVING SAID THAT, I MUST SAY OUT OF ALL THE SUSPECTS, CAROLYN HART PULLED OFF A WONDERFUL ENDING.

What does Kate Reading bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

OH MY, SHE BRINGS THE CHARACTERS ALIVE. SHE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE NARRATORS. I SEE HER NAME, AND I WILL LISTEN TO THE BOOK, IF THERE IS NO UNNESSARY SEX AND VIOLENCE.

Any additional comments?

WELL WORTH THE CREDIT.
