An Excellent Bedtime Read,
This review is from: Behind You! (Paperback)
Linda Regan has used her undoubted experience as an actress to provide the reader with an intimate look at backstage antics in this, her first crime novel. Cleverly using a professional pantomime performance as the background to superbly developed plot-lines which include two suspicious deaths and the personal lives of the investigating police officer and his female assistant, Linda also shines an intrusive light into the dark nooks and crannies of provincial theatre, showing us the real dirt, highlighting the jealousies, the unholy alliances and revealing the sexual proclivities of this particular group of fictional thespians. The contrast between the actors' sparkling onstage performances which have the audiences screaming with delight and their backstage, backstabbing behaviour, gives the reader a real insight into what really goes on behind the scenes and behind the make up.
An enthralling read, this crime story has it all; a clever plot, unbelievably believable characters and an unsuspected twist at the end. An excellent bedtime read.
