Fourth installment in the Charles Paris series. "Dear Old Shakespeare!’ Charles Paris can hardly wait. He’s already endured the amateur theatre company’s production of ‘Dear Old Chekhov’. God only knows what this self-centred group will do to the Bard. But before Charles can escape to the nearest bar, the company’s young and beautiful leading lady turns up dead, Charles’s friend Hugo is charged with the crime, and Charles’s interest is very much revived."
