Heather Havenabout this book: Ah, the theater! The drama! The humor! The dead bodies! Wait, the what?
Casting Call for a Corpse starts with an internationally acclaimed actress throwing her first soiree in her new home, a Painted Lady on Alamo Square in San Francisco. Among the party's guests is friend and ace detective, Lee Alvarez. During the gala event, the actress discovers a man wearing a tuxedo in her clawfoot bathtub. And dead, dead, dead. In fact, Lee has never seen a corpse look quite as dead as this one. And being the in-house detective for the family-owned business, Discretionary Inquiries, she has seen a few in her career.
When it becomes obvious the police are looking to pin it on Lee's actress friend, Lee decides to investigate, spurred on, of course, by her mother, She Who Must Be Obeyed. Everyone gets into the act, from her computer geek brother to Lee's new hubby who'd rather be off celebrating their 6-month wedding anniversary than have a small walk-on part in this musical bound for Broadway. Soon the situation escalates to threatening letters, a cartel of stolen jewelry, and another dead body. And the killer isn't done yet. Death is treading the boards in Casting Call for a Corpse.
