The eleventh Peter Diamond mystery from the master of crime fiction, Peter Lovesey.

There’s plenty of drama, of the wrong kind, when a fading pop star wanting to launch an acting career at Bath’s Theatre Royal gets taken to hospital with third degree burns. In the best theatrical tradition, the show goes on, but the agony turns to murder.

Bath’s top detective, Peter Diamond, is on the case – but for reasons he can’t understand, he suffers a physical reaction amounting to phobia each time he goes near the theatre. Before he can find the killer, he must face his own demons…

Daily Mail
May I be forgiven for describing Peter Lovesey as an old pro? It is truly meant as a compliment. With his ever-fresh reworking of the classic formula he never fails to intrigue and mystify. Stagestruck is one of his best.
