When Gus LeGarde agrees to play piano for the high school drama club's production of "Spirit Me Away", a '60s-style musical he wrote in college, he doesn't expect to face a barrage of menacing pranks played on his fiancée, Camille, and the drama club.
Who's sabotaging the show? And what do they have against Camille? Is it sex-crazed Armand, the Latino teen infatuated with her? Something happened last year that Camille won't talk about, and it has to do with Armand. Gus wants to know what happened, but she's not talking. Could it be Superintendent Marshall, whose past holds horrific secrets related to one of the worst crimes of the 20th century? And why did someone break into Camille's home to steal her beloved mini-dachshund, Boris?
Gus must unravel the mystery before the backstage saboteur stakes his final, deadly claim.

Musical Mystery -An Audiobook With Added Bonus !
I would listen to Upstaged again because I enjoyed it so much with the added musical sections. I've never listened to a book that offered this special effect. I felt even more involved in the character's lives.
It's not often when listening to or reading a book that the most memorable moment comes at the very end of the story. I can't "spoil" this review by explaining what happened but I can say that I was amazed! I didn't see it coming!! The listener or reader will not be disappointed by the final twist to this book!
Robert King Ross has a unique voice that exudes many subtle qualities. I've never listened to someone whose voice tone barely changes but manages to reflect humor, excitement and sensual scenes in such a way that it makes my toes curl up !!
I always want to listen to Aaron Lazar's books all in one sitting ! His books are so compelling, exciting, fun, sexy. I find myself using my Bluetooth headphones throughout my day and evening--even when the television is on I listen to my book if the show is boring. I'd rather "watch" what is going on in my mind ! Aaron's books are much more creative than most shows on cable. The main character Gus is such a "Superhero" to me in so many ways. He's the epitome of a true gentleman. My definition of a gentleman is a man who is thoughtful and kind. He is a man who knows how to make a woman feel special and protected and loved. He loves his children with all of his heart and spends time with them. He can step in at a moment's notice and help someone in need even if it means he has to get physical and risk his own life. Gus has all of these qualities and more. In each book he continues to surprise me with his charm, wit, worldly knowledge and courage in the face of danger. He's a man's man and also a woman's man in every way !!
I will be forever grateful to Aaron Lazar for his gift of his stories. I have found a renewed interest in my life that was previous lacking in passion--passion for life itself !! I feel as if I have gained so many new friends in his books. I think about the stories even after I have finished the books and the memories made while listening to his books will last forever.
