Sinossi

MURDER BEHIND THE SCENES is a detective novel set in Victorian England. In 1857 a young actress called Emily Broughton leaves London to join a provincial theatre company in the seaside town of Handford. She finds a company full of petty rivalries and eccentric actors, but it is also a time of great excitement as American star Ira Douglas is about to make a guest appearance at the theatre.

Emily is soon befriended by the theatre’s wealthy patron Euphemia Pelham, but it emerges Miss Pelham has an ulterior motive and is not as respectable as she seems. After a new acquaintance is poisoned, Emily is forced to investigate the shocking murder of her friend when she herself receives anonymous letters, seemingly from the murderer, threatening to reveal compromising secrets from Emily’s own past.

Murder Behind the Scenes is a full length mystery novel and is 100,102 words (the print edition is 328 pages). Isabella Macready is a pen name. She has previously published one novel and two biographies of historical figures.

5.0 su 5 stelle authentic setting, great read 6 novembre 2011

Isabella Macready sets the stage of her Victorian mystery in fascinating detail. Macready's plot is fast paced with enough twists and turns to keep her readers guessing, and her humorous treatment of her protagonist, Emily, gently pokes fun at the egos of provincial stage actors.

More Macready please!

This book was an entertaining mystery with good character development. The culprit at the end had me guessing all the way up to the last chapter. If you enjoy period mysteries then you will enjoy this one.

As an Agatha Christie, the author places Emily at the seaside summer theater with her secret and other mysterious background histories. An unexpected climax done well with a fascinating summary. The development of the characters and actors builds and rounds out the historical setting.

3.0 su 5 stelle It's ok but... 5 luglio 2012
Di pmaha - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

It is a good story, but feels like it is a first draft rather than a polished finished product. Things seems to end hastily or abruptly, as if the writer intended to come back to them later. She gives broad strokes but no details, like she forgot to come back to them. But, it is a good mystery. Emily Broughton is a flawed character, which is a nice change from Nell Sweeney or Sarah Brandt, who never seem to think badly of anyone or have any real jealousies or selfishness. I liked that Emily wondered why the hell no one realizes she is the second coming to theatre. And that she is jealous of the lead actress and talks before she thinks. I like Nell and Sarah, but Emily was a pleasant change.

5.0 su 5 stelle Among the Better Kindle Historical Mysteries 14 maggio 2012
Di drkhimxz - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

There is a tendency for the historical mystery to lean too heavily in the direction of Romance, subordinating the mystery element to a negligible component. That is not the case in this fine book. An interesting set of characters is created to interact with a heroine whose virtues and f,aults are made clear by the author. She is not one of paper machete young women who people too many of these novels, but a live person, who, yet, has the impulses and semi-mature personality of someone on the cusp of twenty. The theatrical setting is well done though limited in scope; not a novel of the theater but a novel with the theater as backdrop. The author writes well, the plot is interesting and historically sound (in terms of the definitions of appropriate male and female roles in the period), and the characters act in dramatically logical ways rather than being forced to behave as if robots responding to mysterious impulses with no reason behind them.
For those with a taste for this genre, and those who want to chance it, I can recommend this novel.( I see no evidence on Amazon of a successor novel nor that this will be the first in a series. Hopefully, this one will draw the readership which will encourage future adventures of this young person.)
