Book 2 - Thornhill series
Danger waited in the wings
It all began in fun, with plans to perform Rockabye Baby, a mystery play based on Thornhill's most famous scandal -- a nearly fifty-year-old kidnapping case that had never been solved.
Devoted parent Maggie Mead thrilled everyone with her inspired performance as the bereft mother. Until she declared her goal -- to uncover the truth behind the script's carefully crafted lies.
Her dashing costar, Kevin Payne, accepted the opportunities his heroic role offered, both on and off stage. He was delighted to play the devoted gumshoe to Maggie's lady in distress.
But as the playful fiction unfolded, a dangerous epidemic of stage fright struck the town. For the identity of a non-fictional villain would soon be revealed in the unforgiving glare of the spotlight . . . and Maggie and Kevin would share center stage.
