BLOODY INSTRUCTIONS, by Simon Shaw
2/series. Once again, the blithely homicidal actor Philip Fletcher (introduced in Murder Out of Tune) finds his fortunes on the rise as he’s picked for a significant part in Macbeth. But the lead, a foul-mouthed inner-city American boy genius, loathes Fletcher as much as Fletcher loathes him. Who is the prime suspect when the American lead is found with a dagger between his shoulder blades? Fletcher, quick thinking and inventive, tries to tap-dance his way through the morass until he comes face to face with the killer…and what a surprise it is. Author Shaw is an actor and the theatrical details are delightful. It’s another 4. Read these in order!
