Summary

West End theatre impresario Septimus Gooch is a man with many enemies, but when he's found dead in the dressing-room of his leading lady, the police put it down to an accident.

The cast of Septimus's latest musical production at the Jollity Theatre are having none of it, however—this is the second mysterious death in two months, and they're convinced Septimus died after being frightened out of his wits by the ghost that's haunted the theatre ever since it burned to the ground many years ago. A malevolent spirit is on the loose, striking them down one by one. Which of them will be next?

Pressman Freddy Pilkington-Soames was backstage at the Jollity on the night Septimus died. He doesn't believe in ghosts, but he knows a suspicious death when he sees one—and when a third person dies, there's no doubt this time that a human hand was behind it.

Freddy's fending off the attentions of several chorus girls at once, so has his own distractions to contend with. But murder's no joke, and he'll do anything he can to catch the killer before the whole production falls apart. 

After all, the show must go on.

Not as funny as previous installments

I still really like the story but it's not as funny as previous installments. There was less of the farcical that I have grown to love about Freddy's stories. It actually reminded me more of the authors other series in tone. It did still have some lighter elements.

Another Great Freddy Story

I love the characters in all of Clara Benson's novels. The performance by Geythn Edwards is absolutely marvelous! Keep them coming, and don't forget Angela!
