Publisher's Summary

When showbiz gets ugly...

The world of showbiz comes to Bexford when the new series of hit TV show Foul Murder is launched there. Soon, life imitates art as a murder is committed, live on stage.  

Luckily, Detective Sergeant Guy Poole and Detective Inspector Sam Brock are in the audience to take charge of the scene.  

When it becomes clear that one of their own is the prime suspect, they are determined to help prove his innocence, no matter how annoying he is.

Disappointing

I enjoyed Occupied Grave but in this second effort Barnett succumbs to the hapless trivia of the totally cozy.
Most disturbing is the narration. Patterson did a good job with the first book, but he too has redefined himself and not for the better. The reading is high school - well no make that 8th grade. And tends only to make a poor second effort from the author not worth the time or money.

Batty actors!

England, law-enforcement, murder, murder-investigation, actors, acting, family-dynamics, friendship, relationships, procedural*****

Another great character driven procedural complete with an embarrassing mum! But it's also a fine procedural trying to do the diligence with a bunch of entitled and batty television actors and a star struck pathologist. Brock and Poole are the best!
Nigel Patterson showcases his talents by differentiating the characters, and his range of accent and tone is really great.

This book is bad for the same reasons the first was good.

It finally managed to become too cozy. There is little creativity. The characters are talking like they belong in a movie from the 70s. They are not speaking like anybody speaks today.

All over the place

The characters are trying too hard for humor one minute, then trying to be dramatic the next, missing the mark in both cases.

A book that left me wanting more

I enjoyed this introduction to Brock & Poole. The characters were interesting individuals with lives I did not expect Perhaps they were little slow to solve the case, however I will look forward to the next book. A good listen.
