The British Library
A bravura collection of 14 show-stopping, theatrical mysteries from the collection of the Library, spanning 1905-58. Theatre-lovers will discover clever costume changes, cut-throat ambition for starring roles, and secrets lurking in the wings in an entertaining mix of rarely published short stories, including great names of the Golden Age of British mystery writing. With a new introduction and contextual notes, the book includes ‘Blood Sacrifice’, 1939, by Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957); ‘The Case of the Ventriloquist’s Doll’, 1944, by Ernest Dudley (1908-2006); ‘Drink for an Actor’, 1950, by John Appleby (1912-73); ‘I Can Find My Own Way’, 1946, by Ngaio March; and ‘In View of the Audience’, 1934, by Marguerite Steen (1894-1975). Plus stories by Baroness Orczy (1865-1947), Roy Vickers (1889-1965), Julian Symons (1912-94), and more. From back-stage skulduggery to opening nights becoming an actor’s last, a delightful selection to keep you guessing.
