With a divorce looming, antiques picker and sometime sleuth Jane Wheel needs some distraction in her life, and in this seventh outing, following Scary Stuff, her best friend Tim Lowry has the answer. Not only does he need her to help prep a mansion for an estate sale, he also has unearthed an old play—a murder mystery by a local playwright—that he's dying to put on. But is the play cursed? Tom pushes forward with the production in spite of ominous notes that keep showing up in the actors' scripts, warning against a performance; it's only when the set builder dies in a suspicious accident that Jane is convinced someone definitely doesn't want the show to go on.
"As usual in this entertaining series, information on antiques and collectibles is intertwined with the mystery, and this time the dynamics of running a community theater are also in the mix."—Booklist
