Kate Shackleton picks up her second professional sleuthing case in 1922 England. Exposing the culprit of a pawn-shop robbery turns sinister when her investigation takes her to Harrogate, and murder is only one step behind.

The knife sticking out of its chest definitely suggests a killer in the theater's midst. Kate likes nothing better than a mystery, and nothing better than solving them. So when a ransom note demands £1,000 for the safe return of the play's leading lady, the refined streets of Harrogate play host to Kate's skills in piecing together clues -- and luring criminals out of their lairs
