The long-awaited wedding of Sir Neville Hathaway and Lady Priscilla Flanders is only three weeks away — and an evening at the theatre should prove a welcome diversion. But before the final curtain, a noblewoman is slain in her private box . . .
Between The Acts
Was the killer a mere thief, desperate to cover up his crime? Or did Lady Harmony Lummis die at the hands of her lover, the acclaimed thespian Reginald Birdwell? Neville and Priscilla begin to investigate before the body is cold, but the murderer eludes them. Now all the ton is abuzz — and gossip has it that Harmony’s indifferent husband paid the handsome actor to keep his wife happy . . .
There is only one clue to follow: Harmony’s jeweled brooch was ripped from her gown. The bauble is a family heirloom of unique design, and if the murderer has pawned it, Neville and Priscilla can track him down. But to find the killer, they must borrow costumes from the shuttered theatre and play the role of criminals themselves . . . on the most dangerous streets in London . . .
