Publisher's Summary

Dante Gallati was a man who ran his circus with an iron-fist and showed a soft side to a select few. He had his secrets that no one knew about and he could change his mind in a matter of seconds.
One night, he changed the theme of his circus right in the middle of a tour. He promised that it would be the show that everyone would remember. After that, he told them good night and said that he would talk more about Cirque Macabre.
That was the last time anyone saw him alive.
It isn't long before pieces of Dante Gallati are found and the circus performers realize a killer is walking among them. Cryptic notes with Shakespeare's quotes are sent to them and the circus starts to go into a panic. In the middle of it all are the nine people Dante trusted the most: trapeze artists Spencer and Rosalie, acrobats Lisa and Nick, tightrope walker Tracey, bareback rider Alana, Jonny the world's most cynical clown, Harry the lion tamer, and daredevil Andrew.
Dante saved them once upon a time and they swear to keep his legacy alive. But as they keep digging deeper into the murder mystery, they soon realize that Dante wasn't as honest as he appeared to be. He had many secrets and he surrounded himself with lies. He made plenty of people angry and one in particular was angry enough to kill.
Now it's up to Dante's trusted nine to find that killer before one of them ends up as the next victim.

Not bad. Middle of the road mystery. Narration was average. I received this audiobook for free from the author for my unbiased review.

The murder is never really solved..

Any additional comments?

The story is about nine circus performers with a tragic past.
Their ringleader is "believed" to have been murdered.

"The Show Must Go On", therefore, the young performers decide to do a free performance to compensate their fans for the shows canceled because of the circumstances.

The story ends after the successful performance and the detective tells the group that he has arranged for them to continue on their tour, hinting that he might join them in the sequel.

The murder is never solved, if there really was a murder..

Zachary Liebenstein did well with the narration.
