DEAD FOR A DUCAT, by Simon Shaw
3/series. More Philip Fletcher, this time the actor is way down on his luck, lurking in an alcoholic haze in his flat while the theatre world pretends he’s dead. Then he’s offered such a juicy part that he wonders what the catch is. Turns out to be something Fletcher knows only too well: murder. As the attempts on his life mount, Fletcher turns the tables…with mixed results. Another solid, entertaining 4 from Simon Shaw, whose intimate knowledge of the theatre shines through.
