Publisher's Summary

In the first book of the Jocelyn O'Roarke series, when a Broadway show’s lead actress is murdered, her understudy must race to find the killer before it’s too late. Struggling actress Jocelyn "Josh" O’Roarke just got a real offer. Well, something resembling a real offer. Her old friend Austin Frost has written a play for Broadway and cast the glamorous Harriet Weldon as the lead. Not wishing to leave his old friend Josh behind, he has invited her to be Harriet’s understudy.

The role of understudy is a difficult one - and it becomes even more so when Harriet turns up dead and the police name Josh their prime suspect. With the NYPD breathing down her neck, Josh must find the people responsible while ensuring that the show will go on.

Murder on Cue is the first book of the Jocelyn O’Roarke mystery series, which also includes First Hit of the Season and Death Mask.

    Anglophile. Prefer only British fiction and mysteries. Good translations of Italian, too.

    Story
    "A welcome entry into the charmed NYC theatre world"
    Where does Murder on Cue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I cannot rank all the books I have listened to, as it would be comparing apples to oranges. In the genre of cozy mysteries, I would rank this quite high.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    As I lived in NYC, in close proximity to the sight of Jocelyn's apartment, this was much about nostalgia. I can attest that her descriptions and sense of place are spot on. Also, I love that Jocelyn is a smart character, not some lame stereotypical woman.


    What does Jane Dentinger bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she reads her own prose very well. I was engaged and have since purchased two more in the series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, not that sort of book. It was a gentle, sweet read. I read it in two days. `


    Any additional comments?

    I am very happy that Audible has made this series from the 80s/early 90s available on audible format. Now, get me Barbara Pym!
    I think that this Jane Dentinger series is pretty much timeless. The author's wit and dry humor resonate. She is a compelling character and good read. Bravo!
